Four Can’t Miss Fun Activities In Jamaica
I recently returned home from Jamaica having attended a familiarization tour of 10 top rated resorts. This event was sponsored by the Jamaica Tourist Board.
There are amazing and fun-filled activities to enjoy beyond the resorts which we became aware of and some in the group had the chance to experience.
Here are my top four picks.
I am always impressed not only with the variety of options but with the quality of the service and experience on all the different excursions. I recommend that you consider the Jamaican Bobsled tour and Canopy Zip-line adventure. The Jamaican Bobsled tour on Mystic Mountain lets you hop into a real Jamaica Bobsled and take a 3,300 foot long gravity-drive through the rainforest. You’ll sail through dense tropical landscapes and have great views of the coastal landscapes along your thrilling ride. This distinctly Jamaican experience is not something you’ll find anywhere else!
The canopy zip line lets you soar through the treetops, over gorgeous waterscapes and tropical landscapes as you zip from platform to platform taking in some of the most amazing views in the Caribbean. It’s definitely a thrill you won’t want to miss (and won’t soon forget!).
If you are slightly less adventurous but still wants an active excursion, you may want to consider a Jungle River Tubing excursion. Your group and a local guide will tube down a river with some mild “rapids” through the beautiful lush Jamaican landscape. Your guide will point out specific scenic locations and any local birds and wildlife you may pass by. This tour offers some mild thrills but nothing too heart-stopping!
Another option would be climbing the beautiful Dunns River Falls. Another distinctly Jamaican experience, you’ll actually get into the water and climb through the falls with a local guide. While this isn’t for the mobility challenged, it’s not a tough climb at all (if I can do it, chance are you can too!).
As a travel professional, I always recommend that my clients consider pre-arranging these special excursions during their travel planning. There are only limited number of spaces available each day and you certainly don’t want to miss out on the fun!
