Labadee was beautiful. We swam at Columbus Cove. The beach was not too crowded. A gentleman walked around selling drinks but was not pushy or annoying. Beach attendants (bring ones for tips) asked if they could get a chair for you, again not too pushy. The locals were a little annoying trying to sell merchandise,but only if you approached them. The food provided by RC was better than adequate. The ocean was gorgeous!
We went on the Taste of Jamaica, Good Hope, Great House tour. Our guide was much like an elementary school teacher. He would chastise us if he thought we were not listening or giving him our full attention. Didn't really care for that, but he was somewhat entertaining and informative. The tour of the home was ok, we were promised more of the tour after lunch. It never happened. The food was good and different from the norm, except for the dessert. It was a vanilla cupcake with a dab of cream cheese frosting. Not very interesting. The shopping was very limited at the Great House. If you walked across the road to the place were the artisan was working, you found a very American sounding and looking person who did the pottery. I'm not saying he wasn't a Jamaican, just an observation. The bus overheated, but the driver quickly handled the situation. His words, "I put the lime in the coconut, but forgot to put water into the radiator."
