Tour Description:
Many visitors return from their Caribbean holiday raving about their horseback riding excursion through the hills and beach of Jamaica's North Coast. Mount your sturdy steed and roam through the places you have heard about, passing sugar factories and grand estates some of which date back hundreds of years.

If you haven't heard about the Taino Indians' rich history, beliefs, and cultural past, you will learn the fascinating story of this indigenous group who existed before Columbus arrived. While riding through a natural wetland, you will pass beneath lush almond and coconut trees and actually see the places you have heard about, visiting the excavations carried out by archaeologists, who have been digging to uncover the little known history of this region.

When you arrive at the beach you will be able to taste the succulent local produce in a rustic beach hut, and then for the really fun part....changing into a bathing suit and rushing through the waves on horseback. The saddles are left on for safety reasons, so there are no worries about staying on your horses' back. After this thrilling ride, you will take a relaxing saunter along a deserted beach which is inhabited by heron and various other water birds who fish in the shallow waters. While traveling through the mangroves, you will be able to discern the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse and an ancient waterwheel, all part of an abandoned sugar plantation.

What a day!! History, horseback riding, lovely scenery, mysterious ruins, and the unforgettable sights and sounds of rural Jamaica.
