Jamaica lies on 4,400 square miles and is the third largest island in the Caribbean. Recreational activities abound because the island's diverse landscape offers something for everyone. Vacationers enjoy beautiful mountains, coastal waters, rivers and streams.
 

Hiking in the Bluefields Mountains

Bluefields Mountain is located about an hour away from Mongtego Bay and Negril. Full day and half day hikes are available through Reliable Adventures Jamaica. A climber's paradise, hikes begin at 8:00 am Sunday through Friday. On the way up, visitors enjoy seeing local farmers and another way of life without running water and electricity. A refreshing swim awaits you at both Bluefields Beach and Bluefields River before the return trek back.
