Tour Details

After being picked up, you will drive to the corral. After saddling up, you will set out with your trained tour guide for a scenic countryside trail ride with trained guides. Ride through wooded areas, where the Taino Indians used to hunt for food. Learn about the culture of these first Islanders, their beliefs, habits and existence, before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the deep rooted history of this area.

On arrival at the stretch of deserted beach, you will strip down to your bathing suits, while the saddles are removed from the horses. You will then set out on a bare back horse ride experience in the Caribbean Sea, an experience not to me missed. Total time with the horses is approximately 90 minutes. Time in the water is approximately 10 - 15 minutes.

The return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other water birds fish in the shallow waters. Through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse, and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.

You will then drive to the river where you will be given a tube for a lazy float down the river with your guide. A stop will be made where you can swing on a rope and fall in the river before continuing on. Your driver, will safe guard your belongings during the trip. The float portion lasts between 45 and 55 minutes depending on the current and time spent at the midway stop. At the end of the river, your driver will meet you for the return drive to Ocho Rios.

Please note: Tour pickup times begin approximately 45 minutes PRIOR to the tour departure time listed. Full details will be outlined in your electronic ticket.
