Kool Runnings Adventure Park, Jamaica

Kool Runnings Adventure Park, JamaicaFor some light hearted fun in Jamaica, my friend and I had an opportunity to spend a day at the Kool Runnings Adventure Park, Jamaica’s largest and best water park. The waterpark is where you’ll find an abundance of exciting rides that’ll have you gliding down slides, full of thrilling twists and turns.

Visitors can relax on the lazy river or pay homage to the Jamaican Bobsled Team as you navigate through the triple tubes.

There are lots of exciting things to do in the adventure zone, like go karting, laser combat and paint-balling. Visitors can choose from among 10 different water slides, including the thrilling Bobsled water sled, the Green Grotto water shoot and the 40-foot towering Duppy Conqueror.

For something more calming, take a ride on a bamboo raft down the island’s exotic Rio Grande & Martha Brae River. Here, we discovered the surrounding nature by paddling through the wetlands on a kayak, to see the birds and fish that live in the reeds.

Kool Runnings Adventure Park is a thrilling waterpark that offers fun for the entire family at the most diverse water park in the Caribbean. Plus it includes some cultural tours for a complete experience!

We had such a fun day at the Kool Runnings Adventure Park. The staff that we met on the day were welcoming and the environment caters well to tourists and locals alike.

Whilst the park is located in Negril, it’s not too far to visit as a day trip from Montego Bay or St Elizabeth, ideal for visitors travelling from either north or south of the island.

On my latest visit to Jamaica, I’ve had more time than usual to cram in some sightseeing around the country hence being able to take a trip from Portland (in the East) towards the southern coast, with one of my destinations being the parish of St. Elizabeth. Whilst I have family based there, I can’t recall the last time that I actually visited (awful, I know!), so I was keen to become reacquainted with the area, albeit for just a few short hours.

The parish of St. Elizabeth is one of the largest in Jamaica, yet it remains largely unspoilt – which is a true part of its beauty. The less-trodden paths offer great appeal to those seeking a serene way to take in the culture of Jamaica and the diversity of its people. Continue reading Serenity in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica
