Cruise the popular Rio Grande on a bamboo raft while surrounded by tropical habitat. Originally rafts were used to transport produce from the interior of the island, but today they are used as a popular tourist activity. You'll get a good feel for the river as your raft captain paddles you through gentle rapids for about two and a half hours. You can take a break at a local food shack, or cool off and have a swim in the river.

Just drove 2 hours $150 from Hotel to be told rafters on strike. It was the # 1 thing on our list and clearly has spoilt our impression of Jamaica. Never coming back. Cruise Ships should also avoid. more »
Rafting was one of the most peaceful and amazing experiences of my life. The tour guide really went above and beyond.
Rafting is always great at Rio Grande. The tour operators are customer service practitioners. The environment is safe, secure, tourist friendly and whatever help or information you need, it's always provided. This rafting location is great fun for couples, groups and the entire family. Be sure to have a tasty local dish along the bank's rest stops, indulge in supporting the local hand craft vendors by purchasing a souvenir. If you can, then be sure to tip the operators. Rio Grande, "Big River" enjoy the adventure.
