Montego Bay or Negril, Jamaica
The tubing trip on the Great River was fantastic! It was through Chuka Tours from Negril. About a 2 hour bus ride, but the scenery inland was beautiful so worth the time. The tubing itself was great. We got on the tubes which were tied together in 8s. Our guide, JR, was so cool. He gave us a great account of the history of Jamaica and the immediate area as we floated down the river, even trying to teach us a bit of the Jamaican Patois language. There was great banter between our tube barge and another one lead by Shrek. Mostly the river was calm, then you would encounter some mild rapids and were told to "raise your butt" lest you have bruises the next day. At the end of the floating we climbed into Safari trucks for the ride back to where we started. The ride was hysterical if you don't mind bouncing out of your seat the entire ride. We were laughing so hard. The facility where the tour starts and ends is nice - food, lockers for your stuff, gift shop, and clean restrooms. Tip your guide because they deserve it! I would go again in a heart beat!!
