The roads to get to Croydon Plantation are typical of most Jamaican roads. Because Jamaica is full of mountains the roads can get quite winding and bumpy.  This is just part of a true Jamaican experience!  On the drive to Croydon you get to witness a very rural Jamaica which is a part of Jamaica not many tourists get to see. If you suffer from motion sickness, please try and sit at the front of the car or bus you are traveling in.

This tour has won many awards but not awards for adventure and excitement.  It is pretty laid back and may or may not appeal to the younger generation.  The grounds are beautiful and the tour is educational. If your children are interested in learning about different fruits and vegetation then this is right up that alley.  Seniors will also enjoy this tour although there is some walking.  The tour guide will help with that if assistance is needed.
