KHM Travel Agents Experience Fun & Adventure at Chukka Good Hope
Written by: Amanda Bailey on March 03, 2015
As an independent travel agent, you are selling something that nearly everyone wants: fun, relaxation and a little bit of adventure. What better way to learn about the most fun attractions and most relaxing resorts than by experiencing them yourself?
In collaboration with Chukka Caribbean Adventures, our travel agents got to do just that on our latest FAM trip to Jamaica. Between resort site inspections and training sessions with industry veterans, KHM Travel agents spent an afternoon unwinding and channeling their adventurous side at Chukka’s Good Hope Estate.
After getting an introduction to the region’s history with a tour of a 250-year old former sugar cane plantation, agents had their choice of activities offered by Chukka. The options for thrill-seekers included zip lining, river tubing, dune buggy rides, and ATV tours.
For those more interested in Jamaican culture, Chukka offered horse-drawn carriage rides that take visitors on an extended tour of the property. Agents were treated to scenic views, a look at the diverse local plant life, and a stop at a working pottery barn.
Good Hope Estate also includes an authentic Caribbean Village, where guests can sample and purchase locally-produced goods, like Appleton Rum, Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning and Jablum Blue Mountain Coffee. At the end of the day, they can also relax in Chukka’s brand new pool and leisure area.
Chukka Caribbean Adventures is a family-owned business that got its start doing Horseback Ride ‘N’ Swim excursions in Ocho Rios, Jamaica in 1983. They now operate tours in Belize, Turks and Caicos, and four locations in Jamaica. Their extensive lineup of fun-filled activities include snorkeling, sailing, tours of Mayan Temples and airboat adventures.
