The Legend of Martha Brae
The legend tells of an old Arawak witch, who lived on the bank of the River Matibereon. Having heard tales of the Arawak gold, Spanish treasure hunters captured the witch to lead them to the treasure. Pretending to comply she led them into a cave, then suddenly disappeared. Frightened, the Spaniards ran out of the cave but the river engulfed them. The witch then changed the course of the river forever.
Twisted translations produced the English version of river Matibereon to be Martha Brae.
The Martha Brae River Rafting tour will last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. The price includes round trip transportation, a complementary fruit punch on arrival as well as entertainment by the Village Mento Band. There is also a souvenir shop, bars and restaurants at the main location.
