Try Jamaica Beach Horseback Riding its awesome! You get to swim the horses in the water if you want to and the ride is gorgeous!

My husband and I did the horseback ride in Jamaica last week. It was great! The beach was not as large as I expected it to be but all in all it was much fun! I recommend it esp[ecially if you like riding. There are photographers that take your pictures, and sell them to you afterward. Our guides also used our cameras to take pictures as well.

I wanted to write a quick review about Jamaica because you hear so many poor reviews and bad things about Jamaica. I have to say that it was one of the highlights of our trip. The reason being is because of our private tour guide. We booked a tour with Orville Taylor. It was $15 per person (we didn't have kids w/ us so check on that). I didn't want to do an organized tour. I wanted to go to the falls, get lunch at an authentic Jamaican restaurant and maybe do some sightseeing or shopping. I emailed Orville and told him all of this. He said "no worries, my tour is flexible, mon". So I booked with Orville. He met us at the boat in a clean air conditioned new van. Our first stop was Dunns Falls. When we got there and he had another tour guide take us through the falls, he was awesome (we just tipped him). The falls were beautiful and a must see. After we got done, we were soaking wet from head to toe (we knew we were going to get wet but didn't expect to be soaking). Orville said he would take us back to the boat to get cleaned up and then take us anywhere we wanted to go. We said great what time do you want to meet us back here. He said take your time, I will wait here for you. We thought that was fantastic. We changed clothes and met back w/ Orville. We decided that we would like to see a little bit of the countryside and do some shopping before lunch. He took us through Fern Gully and it was beautiful! Orville was very knowledgeable and fun! He has a great singing voice so if you are in the mood, ask him to sing you a couple of songs! He also took us shopping in some small villages which was really neat because the people were friendly and there was no pressure. Afterwards, he took us to lunch at a neat little restaurant that was at the top of a big bluff that had a gorgeous view of the ocean. The food was awesome! He waited for us there and then took us back to the ship. Orville was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. At the end of the tour we all took pictures together and said goodbye. I felt like we were saying goodbye to not just a tour guide but a friend! Have fun and enjoy Jamaica! If you would like to get in touch with Orville you can reach him at orvilletay@yahoo.com .
Have fun,

Cruised Carnival out of Mi Florida in the late 90s. Did 2 Days of the cruise staff telling you not to accept any drug offers. When arrived there and got into a cab I understood. I would never never get on a boat that stoped in Jamaica ever!!
