Torrential rains rushing down from the Blue Mountains feed the Rio Grande River. Bamboo rafts where originally used to transport produce, especially bananas, from the interior of the island.
The legendary Hollywood star, Errol Flynn, who made Port Antonio his home, introduced rafting for fun. Today Rio Grande Rafting is an established attraction enjoyed by visitors and Jamaican’s alike.
A bamboo raft for two passengers is poled downriver by a skilled licensed raft captain for your river adventure down the Rio Grande river valley which is dominated by bamboo and banana groves.
Rio Grande rafting provides some of the most beautiful views you will ever see and for about two to three hours you will be swallowed up by Jamaica’s natural beauty.
