Rio Grande Valley: Port Antonio Attractions & Sightseeing, Jamaica
Valley Hikes offers organized hikes in the Rio Grande Valley with professional guides. All trails have been chosen for their unusual beauty.
One of the lushest and most dramatic valleys in the Caribbean lies directly south of Port Antonio. The river itself is fed from drainage from the John Crow Mountains, creating luxuriant growth along with waterfalls, a tropical rain forest, and roaring rivers. Among its beauty spots are Nonsuch Caves and the Athenry Gardens.
Most visitors flock here to go rafting on the Rio Grande. For the serious adventurer, this country invites deeper exploration, especially those willing to hike through it and put up with some hardships along the way.
Perfect for the adventure traveler who really wants to get out and see more of Jamaica, Valley Hikes offers guided hikes into some of the most interesting regions of Jamaica. Tours are operated by one of 18 trail guides from the surrounding communities; all have been trained and certified by the Jamaica Tourist Board.
The company has developed many trails that offer a variety of experiences, from softadventure to rugged. Many hikes take place under a forested canopy that is home to many endemic bird species as well as the swallowtail butterfly.
The Rio Grande Valley is also the home of the Windward Maroons, a formerly hostile, warlike people who fought the British and refused to become docile slaves. They believed in freedom or death. The descendants of these oncefierce people still live in the area, practicing bush medicine and following ancient rites little changed from the days when their ancestors lived in Africa.
