Excursions Jamaica, by Musement

Appleton Rum, YS Falls & Pelican Bar

Rum, waterfalls and floating bars – this excursion has 100% Jamaica stamped all over it. A tour and tasting of the Appleton Estate rum factory gets the day off to a great start, followed by a refreshing dip in the famous YS Falls and a boat ride over to the one and only Pelican Bar. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.Kick off at the Appleton Estate and you’ll tour the factory that produces what many consider the finest rums in Jamaica. Learn about the distillation process, juice your own cane and, of course, taste the honey-coloured rum. On to the cascading waters of the YS Falls, you’ll cool off in the refreshing waterfall pools with a swim.After lunch, we board a boat and glide out to the Pelican Bar. This ramshackle hut on stilts has to be seen to be believed. Standing on glittering waters, it’s probably the coolest bar in the world. Don’t forget to carve your name into the wood and if you have a flag handy, bring it out to barman Floyd. With luck, you might spot dolphins too.

Dunn’s River Falls & Nine Mile Tour

Two Jamaican legends are the magnets in this irresistible excursion. You’ll visit the highland hamlet that gave the world Bob Marley to explore his birthplace and mausoleum, and discover one of the most exotic natural attractions in the country – Dunn’s River Falls.Your adventure kicks off pretty much the moment you leave your hotel as you head to the coast to visit Dunn’s River Falls, which starred in the James Bond classic, Dr. No. These 55-metre-high and 180-metre-wide falls are interspersed with lagoons and climbing them is an experience in itself.Driving inland for a winding and at times bumpy climb to St Ann Parish, you can expect amazing views of the Dry Harbour Mountains before arriving at Nine Mile. Bob’s birthplace is a national shrine and throngs of Rastafarians mill about outside. You’ll see his home and final resting place as your guide fills you in on his life and music.
