The best-known destination in Jamaica and one of the cheapest places to travel in March, Montego Bay is an absolute delight. The place welcomes you with open arms and has one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean islands. If you are planning to undertake a trip to Montego Bay, we bring you the top 5 things to do while in MoBay:
Bamboo Rafting in Martha Brae
Bamboo rafting down the Martha Brae River is just as beautiful as it is relaxing. As you float through the jungle scenery while your guide steers the bamboo raft through the maze of rocks and trees, you will find yourself in absolute bliss. Along the way, a number of shops, bars, and rope swings are set up, to add to the tourists’ experience.
Canopy and zip line tours are conducted in many parts of Jamaica. However, the Montego Bay tours going to Montpellier stand out. This zip line adventure takes you through the mesmerizing jungle canopy. The tour typically lasts for two hours and has five flights over the river and through trees. You also get to learn about the flora and fauna during the tour. Also, be prepared to stand on ledges and hike up ladders (you will be strapped in at all times).
River Tubing at Montpellier
Post you zip lining adventure, you can hop on a river tube and take another lazy tour down a winding river. The experience is quite similar to bamboo rafting. However, this time you are on inner tubes tied together as you float down the rushing water.
Unlike a typical white water rafting excursion, this tour is laid back and relaxing.
Braco Hill Hike and Bike
The hike and bike tour starts with a hike atop Braco Hill, where the tourists get to learn about the flora and fauna present at the island. The hike offers you some spectacular views (and cold towels to cool you off) before you set down the mountain on bikes. Along the way, tourists pass through stables and farmland, before the biking ends at the beach for a quick dip.
Waterfalls @ MoBay
A tour to Dunns River Falls remains an all-time favorite for most tourists undertaking day trips to Montego Bay. An hour and a half drive from the city, Dunns River Falls form the perfect getaway for nature lovers. Another place you can visit is the YS Waterfalls. You can also opt for a dual trip like an excursion to Dunns River Falls and then a stop at Green Grotto Caves, to enjoy the scenic beauty of MoBay at its best.
