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 ‚ÄúSay‚ÄĚ).¬† Here you‚Äôll be able to take a dip and bathe in the crystal clear river.¬† We can almost guarantee that unlike some of Jamaica‚Äôs other waterfalls this will be alone!
A¬†short walk down to enjoy lunch at our favourite local bar.¬† You will be served¬† an ap√©ritif of Coconut Water , eat traditional-style Jamaican food and afterwards you will no doubt be invited to partake in a game of dominoes, Jamaica‚Äôs national pastime ‚Äď are you up to the challenge?!
After one or two games it‚Äôs time to be welcomed aboard your bamboo raft by your Captain, who will take you for a leisurely ride down the Rio Grande.¬† These rafts are 4‚Äô wide & 33‚Äô long, traditionally used to transport bananas and produce in the Port Antonio area, and make for one of Jamaica‚Äôs best rafting trips, gliding you effortlessly along the 7 miles of calm water and allowing you to view the lush vegetation and endemic birds.
