Capital of the St. James parish and the second largest city in Jamaica, Montego Bay has got more than its fair share of activities for the adventurous bunch. Flanked by mountainous jungle and crystal Caribbean water, Montego Bay is a great jumping off point for further exploration into the great Jamaican outdoors.
Dunn River Falls is Jamaica’s number 1 attraction, and this sparkling series of waterfalls lies only a short coach ride away from some of Jamaica’s main tourist cities. After your coach ride, a short hike and sparkling terraced waterfalls await you. Admire how these falls cascade 600 feet into a series of terraced pools, and then get a chance to experience the cold clear water for yourself with a dip into one of the expansive pools. Perfect for exploring Jamaica’s lush interior, a trip to Dunn River Falls is easy and accessible from Montego Bay.
If exploring the Jamaican jungle has piqued your interests, why not indulge and keep going? A river rafting adventure on the Rio Bueno (Good River) is always an exhilarating experience, while tubing down the river solo is an option for the bold and brave. Horseback trails venture deep into the jungle from Montego Bay, though they also lead to some marvelous secluded beaches.
Jamaica’s Luminous Lagoon is another popular adventure from Montego Bay. Tiny microorganisms in this unique lagoon emit a luminescence when disturbed. An otherwise normal lagoon, come nightfall you can jump into the water and make an unforgettable experience in the water. Glow like an angel in the water as you float under the night sky – this is truly a special adventure.
