1) Ahhh... RAS NATANGO GALLERY & GARDEN
This attraction is different, if you admire nature, you'll absolutely adore this!
Standing 2000 ft above sea level in the hills of Camrose in rural St. James is this breathtaking attraction, which showcases much of Jamaica's best flora and fauna.
Be sure to ask to feed the wild humming birds with your hands!

2) THE BLACK RIVER SAFARI aka "Crocodile Tour"
If you looking for real adventure, this is one! Its a full trip up the river where you learn about wildlife in the area as well as the flora, you get to see and if brave enough, touch a crocodile! Just make sure it is not the 'terrorist'!
And yes, I've been there! Click here to read our personal review.

3) THE FALMOUTH FOOD TOUR
The town of Falmouth in Trelawny has an astounding history!
Outside of having the distinction for the most buildings of Georgian architecture in Jamaica , it was also one of the wealthiest in this hemisphere!
The fun and educational Falmouth food tour captures all this, and more!

4) CHUKKA ADVENTURE TOURS
Update! We did the Horseback Riding Adventure recently! Here's my review, you'll like it!
There are a lot of good reasons why they were crowned the top adventure tour company in the Caribbean. I have first hand experience!
The company operates twenty-eight (28) amazing tours at Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and St. Mary in Jamaica, Belize City in Belize, Half Moon Cay in The Bahamas and Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos Islands.
You can't miss our Chukka Adventure Tour Summary here.
5) ROCKLANDS BIRD SANCTUARY
Sheree said, "Never before had I experienced such a peaceful and serene environment like that of the Rockland’s Bird Sanctuary! Just to be surrounded by birds and trees, looking out on the most breathtaking view of the city of Montego Bay, there really is nothing like it!
For me, this is therapy! And if you love birds and nature, this is the perfect place for you.
The tour starts with a history of the attraction but before the guides get into it, chances are there will be a few doctor birds roaming over your head ready to sit on your fingers to have their nectar!

New! You may also watch the video of our first trip to the beautiful Rocklands Bird Sanctuary (below).
6) BOB MARLEY'S NINE MILES
Nine Miles is the birth place of our late great reggae superstar, Bob Marley and is also his final resting place.
But more than that, the trip also takes you through various villages where you can learn quite a lot about rural Jamaica - the real Jamaica! More on Nine Miles here
7) MYSTIC MOUNTAIN
For Adventure, Thrills, & Breathtaking Views!
Set entirely in a lush, tropical rainforest, atop a mountain, the natural surroundings of this unique 100-acre theme park provides the perfect backdrop for the exhilarating bobsled, zip line, and chairlift rides guests can experience.
A must do - for those who dare :-)

Truly, no trip or vacation to our beautiful island is complete without climbing this majestic waterfall!
Led by experience guides, you can climb the falls with other visitors in a human chain.
This hidden treasure was made famous by Tom Cruise's movie, 'Cocktail'! [Phone:876-974-5944].

You can also wander the trail in the lost jungle and interact with birds, snakes, iguanas if you wish.
This attraction is adjacent to the world-famous Dunn's River Falls. [Phone: 876-974-5335].
