My husband and I recently went on the Jamaica river tubing adventure on the Rio Bueno. It was one of our favorite excursions starting with the friendly van driver to the professional staff. The river rapids and scenery where spectacular!!! We would highly recommend it to anyone!!!
We loved it, but it was a little too short. If you like just being in a comfort zone, not to much choppy water, then this is for you. If you are looking for more waves, then you need to find a different river.
Transport to the shore excursion was difficult. We had to wait under a large white tent located within the gated area owned by the cruiseline. The tent is located to the left of the main walkway into the town of Falmouth. There was no one to help us find our ride.The ticket was for a 1p.m. pick-up however, the ship was using eastern standard time and Falmouth is an hour behind. We were unsure whether we would be picked up on ship time or local time.
Eventually, a driver appeared to pick us up. Upon leaving the gated area, we were taken to a seedy back street parking lot and told to switch vehicles. This alarmed my wife greatly. I then noticed that the second vehicle did not have the window stickers the first vehicle had which, apparently, was needed to get into the gated area. My suspicions were confirmed since we were dropped off outside the gates upon our return.
The location was about a one-half hour drive away from Falmouth. The river was fairly swift with mutiple mini-rapids. We had a guide with us in the water who steered us away from rocks, saw grass, etc. We went about three miles down stream. We then were taken by boat to Bengal Beach which is at the mouth of the river. The driver met us at the beach and took us back to Falmouth. The whole excursion took about two and one-half hours from door to door.
While the rafting portion and beach was nice, the port pickup was TERRIBLE! The phone number provided by Viator didn't work, so it was hard to find the guide. Then, once we found him, he said "wait right here" and never returned. 1 hour later, thanks to another guide's kind help, we found our van!
