When I visited Jamaica, I was on the hunt for things to do with my family. I wanted to do things together. It’s all about making memories when we go on GUBcation!
I experienced some amazing adventures. I took a chance on many things and really jumped out of my comfort zone. I knew if i’d enjoy the adventure I was more than certain my family would too.
Here are 5 family fun adventures that I believe are a must when visiting Jamaica.
In no particular order
Chukka- Horseback Ride and Swim
One of the most interesting adventures for the family was seeing the Horseback ride and swim. Usually it’s just a horseback ride along the beach shore but here in Jamaica you get to explore the water with your horse. It really is an amazing experience. The location is gorgeous and even if you don’t take part in the adventure there is an area that is just gorgeous to relax and watch those taking part in the adventure. Chukka also offers other adventures that may be great for your family!
I can’t say enough about Dolphin Cove. While I am not a swimmer myself, the Dolphin Cove really had an experience for everyone. I recommend the Encounter for families with younger children because the dolphins come to interact with you and waist high water. I know my kids would love to come up close to a Dolphin. Dolphin Cove also has other hands on activities. It really is an all day adventure.
While you wouldn’t think about taking your family to Margaritaville it’s actually family friendly during the day. I recommend taking your family to the Margaritaville in Negril because it comes along the Seven Mile Beach! They have a lifeguard on duty during the day and a super cool bounce to jump off of. The water at Seven Mile Beach is like no other. Crystal clear water with low waters. I even got to see real sea life while on my adventure there.
I am terrified of heights but experiencing Mystic Mountain’s Sky slopes was the best thing I could have done. The slopes ride takes a good 15-20 minutes to climb up the mountain. It’s a peaceful and beautiful ride. At the top of the mountain there is a museum and store as well as other activities including the Bobsled ride!
The Bobsled ride is a must for the whole family. It is a coaster you control and can be linked up in carts with the whole family. I had such a great time taking the ride around the mountain and speeding through the trees and plants. It was an unbelievable experience.
