River-rafting tour on the Rio Bueno in Jamaica
Paddle through class 2 rapids with your professional guide
Following pickup from your hotel, travel to the Rio Bueno, one of Jamaica's scenic rivers. Listen to a short safety briefing while you receive your equipment, including a lifejacket and helmet, as well as basic paddling instructions. Take a short trek through the jungle to the edge of the river, the launching point for your adventure. Jump in the raft with your guides and follow their lead as the boat moves out into the river's swift current. Raft through the river's rapids, eddies and curves. Pause for a break under a stand of bamboo trees, relax on the river bed and try out the rope swing. Re-board your raft and run some more small rapids before being whisked under an old stone bridge. At the river delta, paddle a bit to make it over the last rapids and land at Bengal Bay's white sand shores. After a day of adrenaline-filled adventure, relax on the bay's sandy beach and bask in the tropical sun or take the opportunity to do some more swimming. When your 3.5-hour adventure has come to a close, enjoy transportation back to your hotel. Please note: this tour is unable to accommodate passengers from Royal Caribbean Cruises.

This rafting trip was nice change from the salt water activities. From sitting under a cascading falls to being boated out into the ocean, you will be left feeling refreshed.
One of my best and most fun activity was this one.
Errol was a great tour guide. He was really passionate about his job and a very happy upbeat person that made our river-rafting more fun. The Rio Bueno was a great river to do river rafting, I definitely recommend rafting at this river- it's fun!
Thanks for the great time Errol!
This was fun because we made it fun. Upon arrival, it was suggested that we switch from a raft to a tube. We ended up enjoying the switch. The boat ride back to shore was bad for me. It caused me to get sea sick. Ultimately, I enjoyed my self because it was something different for me.
I had an awesome time with my friends. We were suppose to do the rafting, but ended up doing the tubing. I totally recommend it. Our guides were helpful and knowledgeable. My friends and I felt safe the entire time.
Don't do this trip! The photo is super misleading. There is only one rapid on the whole trip and it wasn't much of one anyway. 2 seconds and that rapid was gone and barely moves you in the boat.You will be paddling the whole time! The river hardly moves. The staff are friendly but with a river hardly moving and not much scenery to look at- just tall grass,I would not recommend this at all.
