Whats more breathtaking while in port in Ocho Rios than horseback riding on the beach? Depart your cruise ship for a Jamaican adventure on horseback. Youll learn some Jamaican history as you ride your horse through wooded areas where Taino Indians used to hunt. Then youll head to the beach where you'll enjoy local snacks before riding through the warm Caribbean waves.
Spend your time in port in Ocho Rios admiring the beautiful countryside and coast on horseback.
Follow your guide and learn about the culture of the Taino Indians before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the history of this area.
Then its time to head to the beach for the real fun. Sample some local produce in a shady beach hut before stripping down to your bathing suit and riding through the Caribbean waves on horseback. Its an experience youll never forget splashing through the water on a beautiful horse. For your safety, the saddles are left on the horses, so you don't have to worry about falling off.
Your return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other waterbirds fish in the shallow waters. You'll travel through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.
No experience is required the ride is suitable for all skill levels. Youll be returned to the cruise ship port in time to catch your ship and head out to your next port of call.
