We loved it! A must do! Bring food because the restaurant isn't really a restaurant, but an outdoor set up which didn't have enough food available. In spite of that, it was an amazing experience!

Six members of our family spend three-memorable days in Port Antonio in March 2016. Highlight of this trip was our full-day down river rafting excursion on Rio Grande. The staff were very friendly and event trained our 13-year old son to become an expert rafter!

Amazing, Tranquil experience. Just stunning view and surreal experience. While rafting down this wide river other rafts would come by to sell cold beer, soda, coconut. The raft stops half way to a little restaurant to have some delish jamaican cuisine... Allows you to swim...More

Rafting on the RioGrande is just about the most peaceful, quiet, tranquil, green experience I have had. The roads going to Pt. Antonio are bad in some patches, they have been having some heavy rains. However, the rains have cleared the river of that invasive...More
