A guided gentle half-hour hike through virgin forest up to the McKenzie Falls which tumble into a tributary of the Rio Grande, the Sarah River (pronounced â€śSayâ€ť).Â Here youâ€™ll be able to take a dip and bathe in the crystal clear river.Â We can almost guarantee that unlike some of Jamaicaâ€™s other waterfalls this will be alone!
AÂ short walk down to enjoy lunch at our favourite local bar.Â You will be servedÂ an apĂ©ritif of Coconut Water , eat traditional-style Jamaican food and afterwards you will no doubt be invited to partake in a game of dominoes, Jamaicaâ€™s national pastime â€“ are you up to the challenge?!
After one or two games itâ€™s time to be welcomed aboard your bamboo raft by your Captain, who will take you for a leisurely ride down the Rio Grande.Â These rafts are 4â€™ wide & 33â€™ long, traditionally used to transport bananas and produce in the Port Antonio area, and make for one of Jamaicaâ€™s best rafting trips, gliding you effortlessly along the 7 miles of calm water and allowing you to view the lush vegetation and endemic birds.
