Tours in Jamaica
Bike riding tours are a wonderful way to explore Jamaica. Traveling
by automobile just can’t provide the same experience. You miss so much,
like the scents carried by the wind – the smell of the ocean, the tropical
forests, the mountains, and the abundant flowers and other plants. The
slower pace allows you to really see what you’re looking, to talk to
local people, and to really savor the experience of Jamaica.
Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours, Ltd., located at 121 Main Street, in Ocho
Rios, is one of the most well known providers of these sorts of adventures.
Their specialty is a day long bike tour that begins 5,600 feet up in
the Blue Mountains, which are the highest mountains in the Caribbean.
Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours, Ltd., makes these tours available out of
both Ocho Rios and Kingston, Jamaica, providing charter bus service
from these points to the mountain for groups as large as 150, with the
average group being made up of about 40 people. All necessary biking
equipment is also provided, as are meals, and rates are reasonable --
$93US for adults and $65US for children under 12 years of age.
The bicycle tour is all down hill, which makes it appropriate for almost
all age groups – age 7 is the youngest recommended for participation
-- and means that you’ll be able to devote your most or your energy
to enjoying the magnificent scenery. And, magnificent it is! Bikers
pass through stunning mountain vistas that include the remarkable coffee
plantations that produce the Blue Mountain coffee beans that are becoming
well known to coffee connoisseurs for their superior taste and quality,
and enjoy wild life sights that are found nowhere else in the world
outside of Jamaica. They’ll see waterfalls and have the opportunity
to enjoy a refreshing swim in the cool, clear mountain water. You’ll
want to remember to bring a swimsuit, towel and camera.
Manfred’s Jamaican Mountain Bike Tours, located in Saint Elizabeth Parish,
Jamaica, offers a wonderful one-week get away tour. Participants enjoy
quality lodging and excellent local cuisine on a 500 acre farming estate
in Apple Valley. Each day features a bicycle tour to a different part
of Jamaica, revealing parts of the country far beyond the usual tourist
destinations. This experience of the real Jamaica – beyond the glitter
and glitz of the tourism industries – is simply unparalleled.
In Negril, Rusty’s Xcellent Adventures offers a variety guided bicycle
tours at different skill levels. Biking equipment and, if necessary,
biking instructors, are available. For those who prefer independent
exploration, there are numerous places throughout Jamaica that offer
bicycle rentals, as well as rentals of scooters and the like.
Bicycle tours are an excellent way to explore Jamaica. In addition to
enjoying the natural Jamaica, its ‘real’ people and culture, you’ll
be doing so in away that has less of a negative environmental impact.
Bicycle tours allow you to slow down and to savor your surroundings,
collecting memories – and perhaps even a newfound cultural awareness
and understanding -- that will last a lifetime.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
