    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Negril hotel, settle in for the 50-mile (80-kilometer) drive to the St Elizabeth Parish, home of the Black River. One of Jamaica's longest rivers, this tributary eventually empties into the Caribbean Sea. 

    Upon arrival on the banks of the river, meet your local guide and board a pontoon boat for an hour-long cruise. As you glide through the lush tropical forest, look out for the many native species like herons and egrets that find their food in the shallows. Crocodiles favor floating among the roots in the mangrove marshes, so have your camera at the ready. 

    Back on solid ground, enjoy a traditional lunch of jerk pork, fish and chicken. Climb back aboard your coach will a full belly and make the half-hour drive to YS Falls. Hit the changing rooms and don your bathing suit so you can fully enjoy the splendor of these 120-foot (37-meter) falls. Cascading over 7 tiers of cliffs, the YS River pours into pools that are perfect for a refreshing dip on a hot tropical afternoon.

    After swimming or relaxing by the falls, continue to Appleton Estate, approximately 25 minutes away by coach. This historic distillery is one of Jamaica's oldest, and has been producing the island's favorite rum for over 250 years. Tour the property, then see the oak barrels and copper stills that give Appleton rum its distinctive taste. Learn about the distillery's rich history and the rum-making process before tasting some yourself. Try several varieties of rums and rum liqueurs before hopping back on the coach for the return trip to Negril. Your 8-hour tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
