The surrounding gardens and tropical foliage make picture-perfect backdrops for your travel photos, so keep your cameras ready!  Make your way to the top of the falls along a wooden walkway, and have a refreshing dip into the cool water pools. You can also climb the challenging rock formations or even zip-line through the trees if you’re feeling adventurous. Thereafter, have a delicious local lunch at YS Falls Restaurant.

From cane to cup, learn the unique distillation process and visit the barrel houses where the rums are aged. It’s an unforgettable experience of the senses – see, touch and taste your way through the flavours of signature Jamaican rum. Sample some of the different blends and also get to take home some memorable souvenirs.

The adventure continues with a short boat ride to Floyd’s Pelican Bar. Built with driftwood in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, Pelican Bar is often described as one of the coolest bars in the world. The bar is uniquely decorated by the owner Floyd, with memorabilia from all the travellers that have visited. Carve out your name into the wood, and bring a flag or an old license plate, which Floyd will add to the décor.

Play dominoes with the locals, sunbathe or take a dip in the shallow turquoise waters surrounding Pelican Bar. If you’re lucky you can even catch sight of stingrays and dolphins.  As the day draws to an end, ride back to the docks for the return journey, stocked with memories of a lifetime.
