Back to river rafting. You can go out on your own or alternatively, opt for a gentle rafting tour on the Black River, White River, Martha Brae or even on Rio Grande. You can sit back relax and enjoy the panoramic vistas as they unfold and see the wildlife. The rafts are approximately 30-feet long and are captained by experts who not only have complete control over the rafts but are also well-versed to provide you information that will make the tour all the more interesting. Also, if you are on a honeymoon or are looking for something really romantic, you can also try out the moonlight rafting tours.

There are plenty of opportunities for white water rafting in fast paced water locations in Montego Bay, Port Antonio and Ocho Rios. Again, you have the option to go out on your own or hire the services of a local guide to help you negotiate the rapids.

Should you wish, you can also hire the services of a local guide to help you navigate the rapids. White water rafting tours are also easily available and usually are three to five hours long.

Whether you wish to go out on your own or opt for a tour, remember to carry along bottled water (though there are some tours that include picnic and drinks), sunscreen and mosquito repellent. Otherwise the bugs can spoil a perfect water rafting trip.

Also, if you are traveling with small kids, there is all the more reason that you can consider staying in Silver Sands villas. The villas specially cater to the needs of the family and accordingly, provide childcare facilities and also have a separate play area to keep them happy and occupied. So, you can go out and enjoy your rafting trip as also other activities meant for adults secure in the knowledge that they will be well taken care of.
