From Reggae music to sporting icons, beautiful beaches and scorching jerk chicken, the flavourful island of Jamaica has so much to offer and there’s endless fun at your fingertips. The rocky cliffs, thick forests and river rapids offer amazing adventures to visitors – here are our top 5 adventures that can’t be missed on a luxury holiday to Jamaica:
1: VISIT THE GROTTO CAVES, AND ENJOY A JOURNEY INTO THE UNDERWORLD
The caves are filled naturally with pristine water, and surrounded by lush vegetation. These caves are bursting with history, during the 17th century when the English invaded, the Spaniards used the caves to hide in. Your private guide will take you in and out of the caves, so you can really experience this wonderful natural phenomenon. This subterranean lake is showered with light holes from above; it’s a beautiful sight.
2: RIVER TUBING ON WHITE RIVER
Tubing on the White River is an exhilarating yet relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Lay in a tube ring and relax while you float along this tropical paradise. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and sounds of nature, your guide will take you on a journey through crystal clear water.
3: CLIFF JUMPING AT RICK’S CAFE
For the daredevils out there, cliff jumping by Rick’s Cafe is the perfect way to get an adrenaline kick! It is also a fun spectator’s sport, if you prefer to relax at the café and watch. The food at Rick’s café is truly delicious, our favourite is the ‘Dog Bowl Reggae Sundae’ which is perfect if you have a sweet tooth. It is a combination of Oreos, chocolate chip cookies, nuts, cream, and caramel, among many other ingredients.
4: CLIMB DUNNS RIVER FALLS
This is a great activity all of the family can enjoy. A climb up a waterfall at Dunns River Falls takes about an hour; but the experience is worth it. Dunns River Falls was also featured in the James Bond film ‘Dr. No’.
5: SWIMMING IN THE LUMINOUS LAGOON
The lagoon is home to millions of dinoflagellates, so at night the lagoon shimmers and sparkles with the glow of these organisms. It is a once in a lifetime experience to see this phenomenon for yourself. Take a tour around the lagoon, and at the end you can jump into the lagoon, to surround yourself by a magical, surreal, luminous green glow.
