From Kingston guests will travel through the mountains to the coast which leads into Port Antonio(where Jamaica’s Tourist Trade began), we then travel into the hills to the Rio Grande Valley to start the ride down the river on bamboo rafts. At this point guests will be equipped with life jackets and assigned to rafts. Midway the trip we will stop to enjoy some Jamaican cooked lunch cooked on the side of the river.
After lunch, we resume the journey which ends in St Margaret’s Bay(return journey has started).Here our driver is awaiting us to return to Kingston. Each raft can take 2 adults and the raft captain.
Your adventure awaits!
