Step aboard your air-conditioned coach for a scenic drive through the rolling hills of the countryside to Orchid World, which sits on 6 acres of land in the central parish of St. George. A meandering path winds its way between beautiful outcrops of coral, rock gardens, cool shady gullies and ponds. Hummingbirds and the soothing sound of running water add to the natural beauty of the natural terrain.

The orchids themselves are spectacular - thousands are grown in shaded houses and outside on freestanding palisades. Wonderful photo opportunities abound for the professional and amateur photographer.

You’ll continue to Farley Hill National Park, the imposing ruins of a once magnificent plantation house are surrounded by gardens, lawns and towering royal palms. Your drive then continues along the scenic west coast, home to many wealthy residents.
