This is what it read: The best way to see the island of Jamaica is by 4×4. Experience the heart of this beautiful island and its many natural treasures.
Enjoy the thrilling, bumpy off-road adventure through the interior of the island, stopping on the way to enjoy wonderful panoramic views of the countryside and over Montego Bay.
Your drive will cut between 2 mountains and visit important properties rich in history dating back to the 18th century. See old sugar factories, cut through farmland and bounce down narrow jungle tracks enjoying the flora and fauna along the way.
In the heart of the jungle you’ll take a walk to the beautiful waterfall, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool river.
During the tour, you’ll be offered refreshments of rum punch, fruit punch or water to quench your thirst.
It sounds like it will be a lot of fun and I imagine very interesting too, the only thing that concerns me is the creepy crawlies. It’s no secret I am TERRIFIED of spiders and I dread to think what else could be lurking in the tropical Jamaican Jungle. I really am a “girl” when it comes to things like this, give me rats, cockroach’s even snakes but keep anything that crawls like its stalking you away from me because I really can’t cope with the stress of it. I’m my own worst enemy though as rather than stand still I would probably turn and run, bumping face first into its sibling on my way which would then result in a real problem.
Anyway, back to the excursion. What a great way to really see the island. This to me is what an excursion is all about, the best way possible to really make the most of your time ashore. You get to see the island I hope for what it truly is. I suppose it’s a little more adventurous too, which is right up our street, we have to have something in life now and then that will keep us on our toes and I expect this will be the one.
We do have other things planned too for our cruise shore days, I will share another one with you very soon but in regards to excursions offered by P&O Cruises, this was definitely our favourite! We are also looking at a few others so will keep you posted.
P.S. I would like to note that the offer of Rum Punch had nothing to do with our decision to book this excursion. 😉
