This is a trip back in time, back to nature to see how locals lived in a by gone era. Fun stop off the beaten path. Lush plants and landscaping that is stunning. Houses to tour and history to be learned.

This is a delightful view of a farm from the time of sugar plantations. A volunteer guide escorts you through the farm from another time. Reservations are required.
