Take a boat ride on the Black River of Jamaica

Your adventure begins with transportation from your resort to the Black River, where friendly guides will help you explore Jamaica's longest river aboard a boat. Take a gentle ride on this body of water and get great views of quaint fishing villages and small towns. Cruising through the sun, you'll see the real heart of Jamaican nature. As you sail down the Black River, keep an eye out for exotic birds hiding between the trees and look for crocodiles peacefully lounging around.

Refresh yourself in the flowing water of YS Falls

Your next location is YS Falls, a beautiful spot where the crisp pools of water are perfect for a refreshing swim or relaxing at the fall's edge. Set in extensive grounds and with seven cascading waterfalls to take in, YS Falls is one of the most beautiful spots in Jamaica given its lush vegetation that will surround you during your swim. Unwind as you soothingly float in one of the natural pools, or splash around and jump right in for a more adventurous time. Either way, your YS Falls visit will be a memorable one.

Get ready to rum-ble at Appleton Estates

The final stop on your excursion will let you experience first-hand how Jamaican rum is made at the Appleton Estates. This world-famous rum distillery produces some of the finest liquor in the land — and the best part is you get to sample this spirit and vouch for its quality. During your exploration of the factory, you’ll learn all about the distilling process, then you can have a taste and even purchase some rum before returning to your vehicle for the ride back to your resort.
