Habitation Clément is part rum distillery, part plantation, part heritage site and museum, meaning it will likely appeal to families and groups of all ages. Travelers can explore the gardens, the main house and its outbuildings and learn about the manufacturing of rum, which is aged six to 10 years in the distillery.
Visitors point out that if you're driving, your group will want to select a designated driver or take a cab, as you're allowed to sample different rums and rum-based liqueurs in the tasting room. There is also a rum shop on the grounds where visitors are welcome to browse and take home bottles of their favorite flavors. Meanwhile, families will enjoy wandering the grounds and looking at the numerous sculptures that are placed throughout.
Habitation Clément is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Recent visitors recommended setting aside at least one to two hours here to see everything. Admission costs 12 euros (about $13.50) for adults, 6 euros (around $7) for children ages 7 to 17; entrance is free for children younger than age 7. Habitation Clément can be found about 13 miles east of Fort-de-France and is accessible via car or taxi. For more information, visit the attraction's website.
