The exhilarating blast of ice-cold spring water is a sheer majesty of nature for the daring scaling the waterfalls.

Green Grotto Caves

Ride through the dense tropical forest at Mystic Mountain
Mystic Mountain: One of Ocho Rios’s biggest attractions, Mystic Mountain offers a unique vantage point to the city. Featuring a series of zip lines crisscrossing the forest in a superb canopy tour, as well as the signature ‘bobsled’ ride through the dense foliage, the mountains offers a perfect tropical forest adventure tour.

Dolphin Cove: Jamaica’s premier marine attraction, it has all the makings of a great family adventure; offering the excitement of interacting with not only bottle-nose dolphins, but stingrays, snakes, iguanas and a host of colourful tropical birds as well.
