The agency, Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours Ltd offers all-inclusive, all-day biking tour in Jamaica's Blue Mountains, the Caribbean's highest mountain range. One of the best tours is the Downhill Bicycle Tour, which gives you the perfect opportunity to appreciate the panoramic vistas as also the exotic flora and fauna. The tour also includes a Jamaican brunch and lunch at a local cafe. This is a guided tour and you are also provided safety equipment. Besides, you also get some time for a refreshing waterfall swim. You can also go for solo cycling. However, note that there are not many bike repair shops so remember to take along a repair kit.


Jamaica offers more major golf championship courses than any other nation in the Caribbean. Some of the best ones are to be found in Montego Bay. If you are a golf enthusiast, you can consider staying in Silver Sands villas, a secure community of Jamaica villas and cottages in the famous north coast, with convenient distance of Montego Bay and Runaway Bay.
