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!

We had a wonderful afternoon as a family of four, with two kids aged 9 and 11. This is not rafting per se as gliding on a bamboo raft that keeps you up out of the water. Think Venice more than Colorado. Nevertheless, you see...More

Querría saber cuál es la mejor manera de realizar esta excursión: contratando una empresa, yendo por tu cuenta, si hay locomoción para ir y venir del hotel. Gracias.
