Jamaica adventures

Jamaica boasts a varied terrain with mountain peaks soaring the sky and the deep waters of the sea housing a world of its own. And then there are world-class golf courses and more. So what does Jamaica has to offer? The simplest answer to this is ‘once you go, you know.’ However, to help you plan your trip, here are some activities you can consider. Also while on the subject on planning, if you would like your own private space and the freedom to explore the island at your own leisure and pace, you could also consider staying in Jamaica accommodation rentals providing all that and more to make your trip really special.

Blue Mountains bicycle tour: You can take a guided tour of the Blue Mountains that will take you through the beautiful rural countryside and also to some of the island’s famous sites such as James Bond Beach, Rio Nuevo Battle Site, Golden Eye, Noel Coward’s Firefly and Blue Harbour. From the Hollywell National Park, you’ll be able to take in the beautiful views of Kingston.

Kool Runnings Water Park: The Kool Runnings Water Park is a great destination for the entire family. The slides here range from the staid to the adventurous. For the kids under 48 inches there is the Coconut island with shallow slides and pools where they can enjoy under the supervision of lifeguards. For the adults there is the 40 feet high and 385 meters long Green Grotto slide equipped with the latest in 3-D visual reality imaging and audio technology so you can create your own slide.. The park’s dry area, ‘The Anancy Village’ also offers a wide range of escapades.

White water rafting: You can also enjoy a white water rafting trip at the Caliche Rainforest Park with more than 100 swift to mellow rivers. Some trips are perfect for the entire family while there is age restriction for kids on some. If you want to try out the adventurous ones but are travelling with kids under 12 years of age, you can consider staying in family friendly rentals such as Silver Sands villas that offer child care facilities and have a separate play area for kids.
