Jamaica Things to Do

  • Rick's Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Negril Things to Do

    One of the top attractions in Negril is this complex, with a fabulous location above Pirate's cove. Sunset was the argument that took us there, but I think that the real reason is... everybody goes. More than a café, this is a... happening.

  • Doctor's Cave Club

    Montego Bay Things to Do

    This beach club is just what the doctor ordered...seriously...some docter liked the place so much he bought it and then donated it back to the city of Montego Bay. And after spending three days relaxing at the said beach club I can understand why. With its well maintained beach and its perfectly still turquoise waters Doctor's Cave is the best non...

  • Dunn's River Falls

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Ocho Rios Things to Do

    It's the top attraction of Ocho Rios, and maybe of Jamaica. Advertised as among the most famous falls in the world, we must be aware that it comes from the fun of climbing it, and not for its spectacularity. There is no comparison for instance with Niagara or Iguaçu falls, but along its 180 meters there's always people laughing. The water is...

  • Snorkeling

    Negril Things to Do

    While I didn't see anything terribly exotic, we did spot a few stingrays near our resort in very shallow water within easy reach from the beach at the end of the resort (currently the clothing optional beach). I also saw an eel and the usual variety of tropical fish you find in the Caribbean. Our resort also had a snorkeling cruise, they change...

  • Dunn River Falls

    Montego Bay Things to Do

    While its possible to fritter all of your time away on the white sand beaches of Jamiaca with the cool turquoise water lapping gently at your feet, there are other options. Seriously. There is a place where the fresh rain water cascades down stone terraces that cut right through the dense Jamaican rainforest and empties out into the Carribean. Its...

  • Dolphin Cove

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Ocho Rios Things to Do

    I've been to Dolphin Cove a number of times and it never gets old! The most special thing I've ever done there is swim with the dolphins and have two of them propel me into the air a few feet high. It was extremely exhilarating and by far one of the most fun things I've ever done.

    more
  • Beach

    Negril Things to Do

    With 10 Km of sand you may choose where to swim - in a crowded and animated spot, or in a calm area. I saw no waves, no currents... Many all-inclusive resorts and restaurants share the beach, that, as a matter of fact, seems totally public, with several public accesses. The privacy and exclusivity are concentrated in the services and facilities...

  • Rose Hall Great House

    Montego Bay Things to Do

    This is supposed to be the haunted house of Jamaica. Rose Hall was built by a wealthy Englishman in 1750. Annie Palmer is said to have practiced voodoo and had three husbands who all died under mysterious circumstances. I dont know how much is true because somewhere else I read that she was just a very unlucky person. It is also said that she was...

  • Bob Marley

    Ocho Rios Things to Do

    This is a must see if you are into Bob Marley. The tour is approx 4 hours from ocho rios. The jeep ride to the tour takes about an hour +, but well worth it. You get to see how the non coastal jamaican's live. The actual tour is kinda touristy, but put aside that and you will enjoy yourself.

  • Horseback Riding

    Negril Things to Do

    This is a great thing to do when you have about 3 to 4 hours to kill and you will get to see alot in this ride. The ride starts out leaving the farm, after a short time you come across the old mill, very cool. At this point your horse may stop at will for a nibble and no matter what you try he's not going any where! After a few minutes the horse...

  • Fern Gully

    4 out of 5 stars

    Ocho Rios Things to Do

    Jack in the Bush.... We actually saw about three of them on our way up Fern Gully. A couple or three locals dress up as bushes, and supposedly jump out and scare the tourists as they're walking by. This one didn't try to scare us, he was too busy smoking his joint.

  • Lighthouse

    4 out of 5 stars

    Negril Things to Do

    This is a really fun thing to do that's pretty much free! The Lighthouse is on the westernmost point of Jamaica and has a large open area with a few shade trees that is made for a picnic lunch----It is only a short walk from Rick's Cafe and there are small groceries along the road where one can purchase fruits, cheese and bread, and drinks, and...

  • Cliff Diving

    Negril Things to Do

    At Rick's Cafe in Negril on the West End you can do what some of the locals do.....Dive or Jump from a 35 foot cliff into the ocean below. Not for the faint of heart of spirit but definitely a thrill for those who do it and come out unscathed.

  • Roaring River

    Negril Things to Do

    Roaring River is a great place to hang out, smoke and contemplate. However, you should be careful with the unofficial guides that hang around Roaring River. They will try to get you to hire them and after showing you around ask for more money than agreed upon. Don't fall for their intimidations!

  • The best of Montego Bay

    1. Rose HallPalmer completed the Great House in the style of a Georgian Mansion. The house has a plastered upper story and a stone lower level. Its position set high on a hill overlooking the coast makes Rose Hall Great House a commanding presence literally as well as figuratively. In 1770, the cost to build Rose Hall Great House, Jamaica was set...

  • Rio Grande Raft, Part 3

    During the raft trip, there are several white water sections, a rock gap known at the love passage, and plenty of birdlife. About halfway down the river, there's a stop for swimming and eating. The food is good and cooked on the spot over an open fire. Our Captain was an calm man and excellent boatman named Albert.

  • Rio Grande Raft, Part 2

    The Jamaican government now regulates the rafting business on the Rio Grande, fixing prices, although there are private rafters on the water too. I recall the price being $30- per person for this four hour trip, which is not a bad price as Jamaican trips go. The government ticket house provides a dock, and level ground for boatmen to build their...

  • Rio Grande Raft, Part 1

    Jamaica's original tourist excursions began off the banana boats at Port Antonio. Noel Coward and Errol Flynn soon found that the rafts used to bring the bananas down to port were a great way to entertain their friends. Today, the banana industry is all but gone in this region of Jamaica, while the rafting remains a popular tourist trip.The bamboo...

  • Bob Marley Museum

    This was the best of the Bob Marley sites in Jamaica. A lot of history here as well as lots of photos. You can even see indents where bullets were shot at Mr. Marley. Cheaper entrance fees for people from Jamaica. Some of his friends / family sometimes hang around and talk about his life.

    more
  • Tuff Gong International

    Cool studio where you can see where Bob Marley and many other greats made and recorded their albums. Free parking, cheap tour.

    more
  • Bob Marley Mausoleum

    You get to see where Bob Marley's life began. The view up into 9 mile is pretty, but if you are prone to motion sickness, you will definitely need to take some medication with. They drive fast through the hills and curves around there.

  • Negril

    After a whirlwind tour of the island in a six day period, we were reluctant to spend another six days just at Negril--with a wedding party. But, despite my basic opposition to corporate run all-inclusive resort style holiday, I'll have to admit that Negril turned out to be a lot of fun. We relaxed on the beach, took a boat ride, saw a live music...

    more
  • Treasure Beach region

    There's a very decentralized region of Jamaica along the southwest coast that I'll refer to as Treasure Beach, but in reality it's a large number of beaches and some inland town areas too. We stayed at Billy's Bay, where there are some really great restaurants and a relaxed atmosphere well away from the congestion of the cruise ship ports or the...

  • Kingston--Birthplace of Reggae

    Kingston isn't nearly as dangerous as it's reputation, especially in Trenchtown, the ghetto where Reggae was born. During daytime at least, anyone can hire a taxi and go to the museum in Trenchtown, and later visit the home of Bob Marley that was turned into a museum. We hired a taxi to drive from Port Antonio to Kingston, then with help of our...

    more
  • Port Antonio

    Long before Montego Bay and Negril became famous, San Antonio was the original resort spot pioneered by tourists aboard otherwise empty banana boats returning to this once thriving produce port on the northeastern corner of Jamaica. Errol Flynn and Noel Coward made San Antonio famous. Today, the main adventure here is opportunity to escape from the...

  • Dunn's River Falls

    It seems like everyone who travels away from the cruise ports visits these falls. Like Lonely Planet Guide notes, Dunn's River Falls is neither the tallest nor of greatest water volume, and in fact these falls are technically a cascade, not a falls, but these are among the most interesting and fun falls in the world. Everyday during high season,...

    more
  • Falmouth and Glistening Waters

    We decided to not waste time by hanging around Montego Bay, where Jamaica's busiest airport and several huge cruise ships dominate the waterfront. Less than a hour east is Falmouth, also a cruise ship port, but also host to a wonderful natural phenomena--glistening waters. Falmouth is one of the oldest towns in Jamaica and claims to have the first...

  • Negril

    Negril was out of our plans in this trip. For our surprise, our hotel suggested a free visit of Negril area, and we accepted. Though lasting only some hours, the visit was interesting and my Negril's page reflects the best of that day. You're invited!

    more
  • Glistening Waters

    It's a funny particularity of this gulf near Runaway Bay, the alga's fluorescence when disturbed. Swimming in the dark waters, turning bright green around you when you move is an odd experience... at a price!

    more
  • Ocho Rios

    Ocho Rios didn't convince me at all as a city! However, it's an interesting area, with Dunn's river falls topping its several attractions.

  • Lucea

    I only knew that we have been in Lucea when, arriving in Portugal, I tried to find in the map the location of Palladium hotel. The hotel was all that I saw, and without sorrow - it was a great couple of days, as I mention in my Lucea´s page.

  • Dunn's River Falls

    During my first trip to Jamaica in 2001 (as a cruise port), my companion and I opted for Dunn's River Falls as our shore excursion. Our ship docked on the opposite side of the island, which required a 2-hour bus trip each way. Dunn's River Falls is very beautiful, and very crowded with tourists. Don't know if/how this could be helped. We arrived,...

  • Rafting

    Everybody in Jamaica descends a river in a bamboo raft. We did it too, in Martha Brae. No emotion at all, just a calm sliding down the river, with timw and peace of mind to watch the beautiful vegetation, with the explanation of the gentle rafter.Rafting, however, was already described in my Runaway Bay's page

  • Climb up Ocho Rios Waterfall

    Perhaps one of the coolest things my little group did, besides lie around the silver sandy beach all day, was climb the waterfall in Ocho Rios. Entrance to the falls is around 15 dollars but entirely worth it. Now, most waterfalls, I am assuming are pretty hard to climb. As this was my first, I really have nothing to compare it to. But this...

  • Birding in Cockpit Country

    The area of Jamaica known at Cockpit Country is inland south east from Montego Bay but we drove into it from Black River on the south west of the island. It is an area of Karst topography where water has dissolved limestone into sinkholes, caves and jagged looking cliffs and mountains. About 70 species of birds are found here and it is a very...

  • Bob Marley Birthplace

    Yea mon! Brother Bobby is here! His birthplace and grave are at a place called Nine Mile. I never went (I'm not a fan...sorry), but to give you an idea of how big Bob Marley really was (and is) in Jamaica, he is the equivalent of Elvis in the US. Tours are available most days.
