Your tour begins with a sightseeing drive along the northeastern coastline to a small town known as St. Ann’s Bay. View the sights from your comfortable coach as your guide narrates the history, tales and interesting facts about Jamaica. Observe the town’s classic Court House of 1866 and Statue of Columbus, honoring his landing. On the return drive, observe the culture of exciting Ocho Rios as you are comfortably chauffeured through the stimulating town. A stop will be made at Wassi Art, a local pottery of skilled artisans. A guided tour allows you to interact with these fine artisans as they turn clay into masterpieces, found in the tempting gift shop at the end of the tour. Then, visit Jamaica’s Garden of Eden, the place that the Taino Indians called “Coyaba” or Paradise.
Hear the roar, feel the fresh mist of the spray from the spectacular waterfall, cascading down, level after glorious level. Follow the trails with your professional attraction guide through this rainforest. Experience all the shades of green, splashed with exotic flowers of every conceivable color. Coyaba Gardens presents a fascinating museum with ancient artifacts from the natives and early colonials excavated on site. Pause at the eye-catching gift shop with native art and craft before re-boarding your coach. With time at leisure, relax at the outdoor terrace of the Almond Tree Restaurant that overlooks the hypnotic Caribbean Sea. Enjoy a cup of Jamaica’s world famous Blue Mountain Coffee and scrumptious banana bread made daily by the restaurant. Time permitting, take a stroll of the manicured gardens on the property. Your tour ends with an optional drop off at the bountiful Island Village Shopping Centre or directly to the ship.
