Falmouth, Jamaica was the last destination of a cruise Mike and I went on so we decided it would be a good place to do one of the offered excursions. There were so many to choose from, but we opted for something that would take us off the beaten path, away from the cruise ship crowd, and show us a bit of authentic Jamaica. For those reasons, we chose a small group excursion to a working papaya farm.

Here are a few photos from our time on the farm where we got to ride a jitney, eat sugar cane and plant a papaya tree.
