    Pass By: Runaway Bay, Jamaica

    This tour takes you through one of the most popular towns on the Island. Runaway Bay is naturally beautiful and is certainly one of the most scenic areas in Jamaica. It sits between the beautiful, crisp coastline to one side and the lush green mountains to the other. There is much debate as to how the town of Runaway Bay got its name. some people believe it got the name because that is where the last batch of Spanish soldiers ran away from when they were retreating from the attacking British Troops lead by Governor Ysassi right after the 1655 British invasion of Jamaica, while other argue that it was the point from which the Slaves from inland plantations used as an escape route to runaway to Cuba. Get your cameras ready to go as you make your way through this area.

    Stop At: Columbus Park Museum, Jamaica

    The town of Discovery Bay is where you will find Columbus Park. It was originally named Puerto Seco (“Dry Harbour”) by Christopher Columbus in 1494 when he and his men landed on the Island. It is said that could not find fresh water to drink. They later found fresh water in another area about 5 miles west of the town. The water was so good that they named the location where it was found Rio Bueno (“Good River”). However, the town of Puerto Seco was later renamed in 1947 to Discovery Bay because Discovery Bay is where the Spanish, lead by Christopher Columbus landed when they invaded the Island on May 4, 1494. There is a park with several old relics and artifacts on display. There will be a brief stop to take photos and capture the rich history of this historic town.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Blue Hole, Ocho Rios Jamaica

    After the scenic drive you will head to Cool Blue Hole and Secret Falls just in time to meet your knowledgeable guide who will be your best friend for the next two hours until the end of the activity. Hidden on the border of Saint Ann and Saint Mary Parishes up in the mountains and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy towns is where you find this unspoiled, untouched rare gem. The Cool Blue Hole oasis offers an array of natural beauty and electrifying fun. Take in the gorgeous, bright blue water in the natural mineral pool surrounded by lush, tropical rain-forest. Have a blast jumping off the edge into the deep pool, swinging on Tarzan ropes or swimming up under the caves. Then, there will be a 5-minute hike through the woods to the amazing Secret Falls. You are in “awe” as you make your way through the magnificent, lush green vegetation up to the Secret Falls. There you can allow the cascading waters to hug you while you take amazing photo shots. Feel free to take lots of photos on this tour. Independent professional photographers are available to take photos at a cost however, if you prefer to take your own feel free to do so at your own risk.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Taj Mahal Shopping Center, 4 Main Street, Ocho Rios Jamaica

    Shopping in Ocho Rios on this day trip will be at the Taj Mahal Shopping Center. A wide variety of items are available in this one area. Items includes rums, coffee, T-shirts, hats, jewelry, Harley D products, etc. however, since this is a private tour where you get to call the shots, you have the choice of requesting or have dialogue with your tour guide to take you to other shopping spots within that geographical location.

    Lunch stop at Scotchies

    Scotchies Outdoor Garden Restaurant is undoubtedly the best jerk chicken and pork spots you can find anywhere. We recommend that you cap off your day’s activities with a stop for the ultimate jerk experience at Scotchies. The food is prepared with the whole family in mind so even the children can take advantage of this amazing experience of tender juicy pork and succulent chicken with festival. Steamed vegetable is also available for non-meat eaters. Don’t forget to challenge the homemade Scotchies specialty hot sauce made from local sun ripened Scotch Bonnet Pepper.

    The Blue Hole and Secret Falls hike was AMAZING! I highly recommend! Bring water shoes and I'd highly recommend bringing a GoPro or fully waterproof camera since the only bummer was that each photo that their photographer took was $20, and honestly I didn't feel like they were

    Dear Customer, Your business is very important to us! We know that you have choices and so we are honored that you chose SNL Jamaican Tours! Thanks for taking the time out to tell us about your experiences on tour with us! The photographers are independent of SNL Jamaica Tours - it is NOT mandatory to purchase photos and that is why we never forget to always, 100% of the time tell our guests in the list of "Things to take" to take their own cameras since it gives more latitude and you are free to take or discard as much pics as you like plus, you should only pay for photos or anything else if you choose to do so. All in all, we are happy that you had so much fun and we look forward to seeing you when next you travel! Kind regards, Natalia McFarlane Manager

    Blue hole is gorgeous! It was a LONG bus ride from our hotel (grand palladium in Lucea). With traffic and the other hotel pick ups, it took us 4 1/2 hours to get to Blue Hole. We spent 1 1/2 hours at Blue Hole and it was a lot of fun jumping and swimming. You have to be a

    Dear Customer, Thanks for booking with us and giving us your feedback! It is just unfortunate that on the day you did your tour, there was an incident on the A1 highway between Grand Palladium and Montego Bay so that caused the traffic to backed up - Marlan made a report to the office immediately when he realized what was happening so we were aware of the situation. Usually the ride is about 1 hour 50 minutes but with rest stops, it will go over a little. We are happy that you had so much fun at the Blue Hole! We look forward to seeing you when next you travel! Kind regards, Natalia McFarlane Manager
