Go rafting and/or tubing on the White River, Ocho Rios: Down, down, down the river and through the curves and turns of the lush forest you will go until you come to a stop – almost where the river meets the sea, just over a hundred meters away.

The luminous lagoon and Glistening water is one of the natural wonders of Jamaica.
Just imagine yourself jumping into the water and seeing the water glow blue when shaken in total darkness – surrounded by mangroves! This is something worth doing. Visitors take a boat ride to where they can enjoy a swim in the warm waters at a depth of 4 to 5 feet (1.5 meters), where simply waving your hands and feet creates a phenomenon: seeing mysterious light illuminating the water below the surface. After all this, you will be taken to see hundreds of birds asleep in the mangroves around the Lagoon, enjoy dinner at the restaurant and drinks at the Lagoon bar. This Jamaica tour should be on the TOP of your list of things to do in Jamaica.
