What are some outdoor activities in Montego Bay?

Jamaica has it all — sea, rivers, mountains, and a wide-open jungle of wilderness. So during your Montego Bay vacation, try the outdoor activities that will make your heart race with adrenaline as you encounter the greenery around you.

For some on-land thrills, hop aboard an ATV or a buggy to explore the jungle at top speed. Traverse the rolling hills and vast scenery tucked away in the wilderness of Jamaica, as you shift your all-terrain vehicle’s gears from high to higher. At times, you might even encounter a wet dirt trail, but it’s always fun to accelerate through it to splash yourself with mud and with incredible fun.

The adrenaline rush of Jamaica isn’t exclusive to land expeditions, though. You can also conquer the air by zip-lining high above the jungle canopy. Experience the sensation of flying faster than a bird, taking in the fascinating view of the trees below you, letting all the exhilaration electrify your body as you zoom on your zip line cable.

Once you’ve conquered both land and air, it’s time to experience more thrills by taking Montego Bay’s outdoor activities on water. You simply must experience a fun kayaking or inner tubing adventure by going down Jamaica’s river rapids. Make a splash as you soak in the freshwater, every once in a while slowing down to simply relax as you take in the wonderful nature surrounding the river. Speaking of slowing it down, you can always count on going at your own leisurely pace by riding a horse through the backcountry, or even taking a gentle segway ride through the natural landscapes.

So whether you drive an ATV, zip line over the jungle, go down river rapids, or simply take it slow on horseback, there are plenty of outdoor activities in Montego Bay for you to enjoy the fresh air.
