Things to do with your family in Montego Bay

Are you traveling to Jamaica with the kids? The best way to experience the island’s natural marvels is by taking family activities around Montego Bay. This magical nation offers a collection of tours and experiences that are appropriate for younger and older visitors alike. Whether you want to spend the day at a beach club, or exploring the waterfalls, jungles, and mountains, or having the time of your life on water, Jamaica has everything you need for a family-friendly vacation.

One of the obligatory places to visit during your time in Montego Bay is Dunn’s River Falls. These 600-foot-long waterfalls are at the top of the list for Jamaica vacationers because of the splashing good time they provide inside a verdant setting. These cascades flow into the Caribbean Sea, and the whole family can enjoy it at the Bamboo Beach Club for plenty of sun and fun.

You can go zip-lining high above the jungle canopy to add an extra touch of adrenaline to your vacation. Go high above the mountains of Ocho Rios and get amazing views of the Caribbean Sea as you go on a chairlift and down a bobsled, just like the legendary Jamaican bobsled team that made history in the 1988 Winter Olympics.

Finally, to unleash your family’s jungle spirit, don’t forget to take a Jeep on an unforgettable safari through the hidden landscapes of Trelawny Parish. Are you ready to take on the best family activities during your Montego Bay vacation?
