With stunning white sand beaches and laid-back vibes that resonate through the island, it’s easy to give in to being a beach bum in Jamaica. But with so many great activities on offer, it’s worth picking yourself up off the sand for an afternoon to really make the most of your surroundings on a holiday here. If you’ve got a holiday to Jamaica in the pipeline, here are our top picks of the island adventures.
Channel those action hero vibes and hop on a four-wheel bike on the island. Head off on your own off-road adventure through orange groves, puddles and the local farming villages before finishing up with a tasty lunch in the ranch restaurant – it will certainly be well-earned.
Go back to basics with this adventure by hopping on one of the bamboo rafts which are poled by local guides. Admire the exotic greenery and embrace your inner Lara Croft while you learn about your surroundings from a local in Falmouth.
Go for a Safari Boat Tour
Kill two birds with one stone (please not literally, they’re far too pretty) with a safari boat tour in Jamaica. Explore the Black River with one of the local guides and let them show you the inhabitants which consist of egrets, herons and even some crocs!
Bobsled in the Sun
Head to Ocho Rios if you fancy a different take on the rainforest adventure. Pretty much a jungle rollercoaster, the rainforest bobsled takes you up and down the mountain and provides some great panoramic views along the way too, so be sure to keep your camera at the ready!
Climb the Falls
Head to Dunn River Falls in Jamaica to attempt a climb on the terraced rocks. Not for the faint-hearted (or those who prefer to stay dry), it’s one of the few waterfalls in the world that is relatively easy to climb so make sure you give it a go! If you’d like to avoid the crowds, finding your own way there can make a big difference so ask around for local transport.
Zip line through the Forest
Head into the mountains of Jamaica and opt for a thrilling experience with one of the zip line adventures on offer. Home to the longest zip lines in the Caribbean, it’s well worth the time and money on your holiday in Jamaica.
Be sure to make the most of all the great adventures on offer on your holiday in Jamaica. Swap a few hours on the beach for a jungle experience or an afternoon by the pool for some zip lining through the forest – we promise you won’t regret it!
