Appleton Rum, YS Falls & Pelican Bar
TUI collection

Appleton Rum, YS Falls & Pelican Bar

Rum, waterfalls and floating bars – this excursion has 100% Jamaica stamped all over it. Kick off at the Appleton Estate for a tour of the factory and a taste of the finest rums in Jamaica. On to the cascading waters of the YS Falls, you'll cool off in the refreshing waterfall pools with a swim. After lunch, we board a boat and glide out to the Pelican Bar. This ramshackle hut on stilts has to be seen to be believed. Standing on glittering waters, it's probably the coolest bar in the world. Don't forget to carve your name into the wood and if you have a flag handy, bring it out to barman Floyd. With luck, you might spot dolphins too.

Dunn's River Falls & Nine Mile Tour
Excursions & day trips

Dunn's River Falls & Nine Mile Tour

Two Jamaican legends are the magnets in this irresistible excursion. Your adventure kicks off pretty much the moment you leave your hotel as you head to the coast to visit Dunn's River Falls, which starred in the James Bond classic, Dr. No. These 55-metre-high and 180-metre-wide falls are interspersed with lagoons and climbing them is an experience in itself. Next up is Nine Mile. Bob's birthplace is a national shrine and throngs of Rastafarians mill about outside. You'll see his home and final resting place as your guide fills you in on his life and music.

Jamaica's longest river, Black River, is a tropical wildlife haven. You'll take a scenic drive through forested mountains before climbing aboard a pontoon boat. Drift silently downriver, soaking up the sights and sounds of the jungle – all the while learning about the ecosystem's wildlife from your local guide. Glide past mangroves and beady-eyed crocodiles peeping from the water, which your guide will lure to the surface for some great photo ops by tossing food from the boat. Finish your trip at the beautiful, cascading waters of the YS Falls, where you'll cool off in one of its natural pools.

Dunn’s River Falls Tour
Activities

Dunn’s River Falls Tour

If you've seen Cocktail, you'll remember Tom Cruise and his leading lady enjoying a moment at Dunn's River Falls. Imagine a 180-metre staircase of rock with water thundering down it and you get the idea of Dunn's River Falls - one of the few waterfalls on earth to wash straight out to sea. But people don't congregate here to just admire them – they scale them. You'll join a guide-led conga chain to get to the top and anyone, from toddlers to seniors, can have a go. But, if you don't fancy the climb, you can follow the trails either side or stay at the base relaxing in the natural pools.

Caribbean Horse Ride & Swim
Activities

Caribbean Horse Ride & Swim

Riding a horse along the shores of the Caribbean Sea is the stuff of dreams. On this half-day experience, you'll be matched with your ideal partner down at the ranch before setting off on a guided trip into the wilderness. We'll begin with a gentle saunter through the rolling countryside, passing by fields and forests, gradually making our way down to the shoreline. Here, the adventure really begins as you trot along the soft sand, toying with the waves until your horse is actually swimming in the sea. They call it a ‘seahorse ride' in these parts, and it's like something out of a movie.
