Jamaica has long been a great destination for eloping, destination weddings and honeymoons. Why? In a word – beauty. The sunsets, the beaches, the pampering. It all adds up to one incredibly romantic destination. Although you may not want to leave your resort, there are a great deal of outdoor activities to keep the newly-married couple busy. For instance, those who have their weddings in Jamaica have some great adventures awaiting them, such as:
1. Swim with the Dolphins
Swimming with the dolphins is available at Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios, next to Dunn’s River Falls. While there, check out the Jungle Trail, which is populated by exotic animals and tropical birds.
2. Swing among the Trees
Where else can you tour a rainforest above the trees but in Jamaica? On the Chukka Caribbean Adventures tour, you and your new husband or bride can glide among the trees from platform to platform by utilizing a system of harnesses and pulleys. A totally unique way to experience the rainforest.
3. Explore a Cave
Be sure to check out the limestone caves and tunnels near Discovery Bay, once used as hiding places by pirates. But, the big draw is the underground Grotto Lake, accessible by boat.
4. Visit the Blue Lagoon
Considered the most romantic spot in Jamaica, The Blue Lagoon is near Port Antonio, and, according to legend, has an aphrodisiac effect on those who swim there. Enough said.
5. Raft through the Tunnel of Love
What better way to celebrate your wedding than to take a rafting expedition on the Rio Grande — the longest river in Jamaica, where you, your loved one and a guide take a two-hour float, including passing through the “Tunnel of Love,” a limestone cave where kissing the bride is strongly encouraged
