Jamaica Activities and Attractions

Kool Runnings Water Park

Spread over five acres in Negril, Kool Runnings Water Park is a watery world of fun with ten water slides, some of which tower up to forty feet, and a lazy river ride that takes snakes through waterfalls and under bridges. After spending a day splashing about the park, visitors with an appetite can grab a bite at one of the park's three restaurants.

Safari, Snorkel or Sail

From either Montego Bay, Falmouth or Ocho Rios, Chukka's Zipline Canopy & River Tubing Safari is a two-in-one nature adventure travelling by air and by water past Mother Nature at her finest. Other Chukka fan favorites departing from Montego Bay include Flight of the White Witch, Horseback Ride 'n Swim and a River Tubing Safari. Tours departing from Ocho Rios include a Snorkel and Sail excursion and a fragrant Horticultural tour and from Falmouth, High Tea at the Good Hope Estate is an elegant affair.

Marley Tour

For Marley fans, a pulsating pilgrimage aboard an Island Routes Zion Bus Line Tour to the village of Nine Mile where the reggae superstar penned his most iconic tunes is a must-do. Guides share all kinds of Marley trivia while a soundtrack of his greatest hits and shots of potent rum keeps the party lively as the bus winds along the country roads of St. Ann.

Island Village

A first of its kind in Jamaica, Island Village between Fisherman's Beach and the cruise ship pier in Ocho Rios is a theme park, entertainment center and shopping mall rolled into one. For music lovers, Reggae Explosion is an interactive museum with a great gift shop while the water sports center, cyber caf', art gallery and casino are big hits with those looking for a day away from the resort.


One hour from Montego Bay, a hike through the Bluefields offer coveted bragging rights at the top of the 2,300 foot high mountain. Climbing at a steady pace on dusty paths and donkey tracks, panoramas of wooded valleys and old plantations put the wow-factor in a sunny afternoon. Tours last three hours with a refreshing dip in the sea and lunch included.

Bicycle Adventure

For cyclists of all ages and skill levels, Island Routes 'Bicycle Adventure in the Blue Mountains' is two-wheeled fun in the sun. Trekking down the island's highest mountain range through the forests of Portland, guides treat riders to stops at coffee estates to learn how the best brew in the world is made from crop to cup.
