Go Bamboo River Rafting: The Martha Brae River provides the ultimate opportunity for relaxation. Two people can sit pretty on a bamboo raft while they glide along, catching all the sights at the edges of the tropical river banks. Originally used to transport produce such as bananas to various markets, the rafts are now used for guests who want to experience Jamaica’s natural landscape in style.
