The Blue Hole Mineral Spring sits beneath the cavernous opening in Jamaica's terrain and is entirely encased by karst limestone. the natural occurrence of minerals in the limestone act as an underground filter for a steady upwelling of water, leaving behind a luxuriously pure bath of minerals for travellers to enjoy. Travellers can also participate in activities such as hiking, swimming, and cliff jumps, and there is also an adult and kids side pool. The entry fee for the blue hole is $25/per person.

2,200 acre property was originally home to the Tainos, the indigenous people and inhabitants of Jamaica. The Tainos usually inhabited places near to a fresh water source such as a river so it made sense that they’d choose this spot. The Taino population was decimated in the 1500s by the Spanish who first came to the island in 1494. Next, Jamaica was captured by the British in 1655, after which a series of forts were constructed to protect the Jamaican coastline from reprisal. Fort Tryall was constructed during this period and still remains towards the east of the property (not seen during this visit). Next, the property was utilized as a sugar plantation and powered by African slave labour. The Tryall Water Wheel was built in 1700 and is powered by water from the Flint River. Water from the river is supplied to the waterwheel via an aqueduct which carries water down for two miles from the hills. during wet season the wheel still turns,so if lucky travelers will get to see.
Fort Charlotte, located in Lucea, in the parish of Hanover, was built in the mid-18th Century by the British to defend the North North Westerly section of the island. It was built during the reign of King George III of England and is named after his consort, Charlotte. The fort was built with a barrack capable of housing 50 men. The fort had 23 embrasures for 23 guns, 20 mounted. During the Napoleonic Wars, the guns at the fort were insufficient to guard the harbour, so in 1807, three 24-pounders on traversing carriages were installed on the seaward side of the fort. The fort is built of rectangular cut stone and has several openings toward the sea. Inside the fort are the remains of the circular base for the rotation of guns placed there so that they could shoot from every possible angle. The Artillery Store still stands and is made of cut stone. It has buttresses and a gable-ended roof. A section of the fort is now a school.
