Barrett Adventures is run by Carolyn Barrett, a woman of integrity, who works hard to provide her clients with excellent adventures all throughout Jamaica. The tour we selected, YS Falls and Tubing, had to be exchanged for another due to damage from Hurricane Nicole that hit the day prior to our arrival. We were offered three alternate destinations and chose... More

We used Barrett Adventures for our second time when visiting Jamaica. First in Ocho Rios, tubing down the White River and then lunch, this time in Montego Bay on the zip line followed by lunch. It was fantastic. What an experience. Totally safe and what views! We traveled with our adult children, they loved it, loved meeting Carolyn and hearing... More

First time visitors to Jamaica. We stayed at an all inclusive resort in Montego Bay but wanted to see the other cultures and sights of Jamaica. We booked our trips via the internet and talked on the phone with Carolyn also. They picked us up at the resort always on time and went on 3 tours. 1 with Carolyn and... More

My wife and I were on a cruise and only in Montego Bay for the day. I was admittedly a little apprehensive about venturing into Montego Bay. I had spoken with other guests on the ship who told me to that crime and drugs had plagued the country for years and that we needed to be careful. We even made... More

We toured to Carolyn's Secret Falls and White River tubing and enjoyed both stops. However, the exceptional part of the day was our driver, Loxley. We were picked up promptly at our resort by a well dressed gentleman in a new, comfortable car. Loxley treated us as if he were our personal chauffeur, not simply a driver, for the day.... More

I first visited Jamaica 5 years ago as an adventure for my daughter's 21st birthday. I found a cheap flight and then set about looking for accommodation. It was there that I found Carolyn. We established email contact and discussed what we wanted from the holiday. We chose to stay at Horizon in Bluefields, Westmoreland, which Carolyn was managing. This... More
