Jamaica Tourism promotes its four ‘must-visit’ rivers



The island of Jamaica has numerous navigable rivers which offer a number of opportunities for activities and adventures.

For extreme thrill seekers, river boarding on the Rio Bueno River is a must-do activity. The currents take one to the mouth of the river and into the Caribbean Sea. Martha Brae is Jamaica’s premier rafting attraction. A skilled raft captain on a 30 ft. bamboo raft takes visitors on a romantic adventure into the scenic and tranquil beauty of the island. The river is located in Falmouth and Trelawny and offers two main attractions – the thrill of bamboo rafting and the stunning Luminous Lagoon of Glistening Waters.

Kayaking and River Tubing down the tranquil White River in Ocho Rios is another popular activity. Experienced tubing guides will take you on a breathtaking three mile journey down the river. This river is not only known for its beauty but also as the dividing line between two of the most beautiful parishes in Jamaica, St. Mary & St. Ann.

Rafting at Rio Grande River provides some of the most beautiful views for about two to three hours. The river rafting practice began in the early 20th century and since then many tourists and eco-travellers have followed suit to enjoy one of the most magical experiences of Jamaica.
