Jamaica Adventure Tours by C. Holness
What is an “adventure tour”?, you might ask. Adventure tours are excursions which allow you to fully experience and appreciate the natural wonders of the Jamaican wilderness.
Popular with nature-lovers and thrill-seekers alike, this type of tour typically features one or a combination of fun activities in an outdoor setting such as rafting, hiking, horseback riding, or driving all-terrain vehicles.
It's a fantastic way for adventuresome folks to see parts of the island they may miss out on otherwise. Jamaica offers visitors a rich landscape of beautiful surroundings, and what can be better than getting to see them up close while having the time of your life doing something exciting and out of the ordinary?
TYPES OF ADVENTURE TOURS?
You will find that there is a great selection thrilling adventures you can embark upon during your stay in Jamaica. Even if you are just on the island for a few hours while your cruise ship docks at one of Jamaica's ports-of-call, you should have enough time to head out on one of these memorable excursions.
Each tour will consist of usually a small, intimate group of participants led by a dedicated and knowledgeable guide, and all necessary equipment is provided by the tour company, so all you need to do is dress comfortably and bring only yourself.
Some are suitable for people of all ages, and are great for the kids, while others are geared towards adults for safety reasons.
Whether you prefer land or water or a little of both, you are sure to find just the perfect adventure for you that may very well be the highlight of your vacation!
