Yaaman Adventure Park is located on Prospect Plantation in Ocho Rios Jamaica. Prospect Plantation had three owners before the current owner Sir Harold Mitchell, who bought it in 1936.
The historic Great House is perched on a prominent hill at the heart of Prospect Plantation. It overlooks much of the estate and has an uninterrupted view of the Caribbean Sea. The view is called “Sir Harold’s View” and it is said that on clear days one can see the edge of Cuba.
The Mitchell family are very philanthropic. Sir Mitchell started a boys school on the plantation that educate 30 boys from all over the island for 3 years absolutely free. There is an entrance exam and the top 30 scores island wide, get their high school education paid for by the Mitchell family.
Prospect Estate has a bird’s eye view of the magnificent White River Gorge.
Yaaman’s all-inclusive package includes food, a Jitney tour, a Culinary Experience, Horseback Riding Adventure, Camel Trek Adventure, ‘Wet N’Dirty’ Dune Buggy tour and a Bird Aviary experience.
Important to note…
My advice to anyone that would like to take part in the all inclusive package is that you should book the first tour or get there as early as possible so that you can get to experience all the activities in your package. Sometimes there is a bit of wait in between the activities but it doesn’t spoil the awesomeness of the experience.
