Bamboo Rafting in Jamaica

For all those people who love having an adventurous vacation, there is no better place than Jamaica. This is a small island nation, but it has all those things that may entertain a tourist. Although it is a fact that Jamaica is a well-known place for its amazing cuisine that is an excellent mixture of Spanish, Indian, Arawak Indian, Chinese, Middle Eastern and African influence, the place has some outstanding locations for adventure lovers.

For outdoor adventures in Jamaica, you should never miss a chance to pay a visit to the YS Falls. There is a vertical staircase of waterfalls that drops form an amazing height of 130feet. Underneath is the Black River, which collects the water coming from this staircase of waterfalls.

Now, if you think the place is only beautiful but is far from being adventurous, you are in for a bend of mind. Imagine this: you are suspended in the air, all tied up, at more than 40 feet above the waterfall, ready to come down at an amazing pace. Does it sound scary? It is simply outstanding! And, you will admit it just after being involved in this special ride of your life. Surely, this is one lovely place to be in with your whole family.


It offers amazing fun, and you will never forget the day you spend in a place surrounded by gardens, giant trees, water, and an assortment of tropical birds.

If you think a visit to the YS Falls is not all that adventurous, don’t worry, as there are even more interested outdoor adventures in Jamaica that are sure to leave you astounded. One great thing to do in Jamaica is scuba diving. To do this, you need to get close to the waters of Negril Jamaica. Not only can you spend time in scuba diving, but you can also have a whale of a time in snorkeling, kayaking, and sailing.

What’s so special about diving or snorkeling in Jamaica is the fact that you can get close to the fascinating marine life. Just hop into the water, keep going down, and you will be able to meet turtles, rays, eels, octopus, barracuda, and dolphins. Feeling all these creatures close to you is an exhilarating experience that will remain in your heart and soul for your lifetime.

If you think that’s all you can get in Jamaica, you don’t know Jamaica yet. Just when you think the adventure is over, Jamaica gives you a chance to have a taste of Calypso Rafting and Tubing. Your fun-filled voyage starts near Ochos Rios on the back of a wooden raft.

The scenery is outstanding and the view is exceptional. Moreover, while you are at this place, don’t forget to have a taste of tubing, which is a perfect activity if you have kids who are just like their adventure-loving parents.

All in all, it can easily be said that outdoor activities in Jamaica are simply superb. There is adventure in every corner of this beautiful island. So, when are you going to get the taste of these adventures? Sooner is better!
