ShoreTrips says...

Barry and I explored this on our last trip. It is a gorgeous setting and and a lovely ride from both Ocho Rios and lots of fun for the agile.

Get ready to enjoy all the best that Jamaica has to offer. We'll set out to our first destination, Bengal Beach, which is about a 35 minute drive from Ocho Rios. Upon arrival, you can choose your own adrenaline high, whether it be rafting, tubing, or kayaking. After a scenic trip on the water, everyone will meet at the beach, where you will enjoy a wonderful, local lunch including the famous Jerk chicken.

After lunch, you will have some free time to relax and enjoy this quiet beach before heading off to the Blue Hole.

The ride, particularly as you near the Blue Hole, is colorful to say the least. Set in the midst of the White River Valley, you overlook this lush piece of paradise. Though often compared to Dunns River Falls as a better option, this is distinctly different as you are climbing down an irregular set of stone steps to reach the bottom of the grotto. Now in the middle of the rainforest, you are surrounded by greens, flowers, and wild growth and almost forgetting where you are.

You will find yourself in a serene setting that has been known by many names, but Blue Hole describes it the best. Icy blue waters of the rippling river wind through the hills, forests and villages and arrives at your feet. The Hole creates waterfalls that cascade approximately 20 to 25 feet and is a great spot for swimmers and thrill seekers. You can find a Tarzan rope if you are more adventurous and if not, you can make your way along the stones that line the border and find a pool of your own.

While at the Blue Hole, there are locals who hang out in order to help others navigate some of the cold water and currents. Help them out with some cash and they will do anything to make your day more enjoyable.

All in all, you will have a full day of fun.
