ADVENTURE ALWAYS AWAITS IN JAMAICA. ALWAYS.
Pristine beaches and secluded escapes aren’t the only ways to fill one’s days in Jamrock. Culturally rich and mesmerizingly beautiful, Jamaica is a preferred playground because fun is just as easy to find outside the comfy confines of a Sandals Resort, if you know where to look…
Black River, Ys Falls & Appleton Estate Rum Tour
Crossing paths with a crocodile or a chestnut-bellied cuckoo is par for the course while you drift down the Black River, a long, lazy waterway flanked on both sides by dense and vibrant tropical vegetation. Unspoiled and spectacular, the river run gives way to the natural wonder of YS Falls, spilling seven waterfalls into tranquil pools all seductively girded by lush forest. After that, it’s on to a luscious lunch and a tour of the world-renowned Appleton Estate — where welcome samplings of some of the very finest rum ever aged is assured.
Island Routes Reggae Sunset catamaran cruise
Experience the magic of the MoBay coastline from the casual comfort of the Island Routes Reggae Sunset Cruiseliner. You’ll even have time to stop in Margaritaville, literally! Made famous by Jimmy Buffet’s hit, this liquid locale comes complete with water trampolines, floating obstacle courses, and a 12-story waterslide designed to drop you right into the Caribbean drink. Dry off back aboard with DJ-spun music and savoury snacks as the setting sun disappears over the ocean horizon.
Take the wheel of a MINI Cooper for some mega fun with a local guide: your backseat chaperone will show you all the hidden gems of Jamaica. Pit stops for traditional island snacks, both sweet and savoury, between quick scenic road trips taking you from markets and monuments to expansive beaches and refreshing waterfalls, slots this Island Routes adventure high on every traveller’s to-do list. Buckle in to see, taste and touch all the authentic stuff that puts the Rock on the map.
