Rio Grande, Port Antonio

4.6
#3 of 6 in Nature in Portland Parish
Cruise the popular Rio Grande on a bamboo raft while surrounded by tropical habitat. Originally rafts were used to transport produce from the interior of the island, but today they are used as a popular tourist activity. You'll get a good feel for the river as your raft captain paddles you through gentle rapids for about two and a half hours. You can take a break at a local food shack, or cool off and have a swim in the river.
