    For those of you who have already been to Jamaica...are there any tours that Sandals offers that are a MUST DO?? We are thinking maybe the zipline tour and perhaps the YS falls tour Any thoughts/comments are greatly appreciated!!

        Not sure what Sandals offers but there are plenty of tours you can do. I have done the Dunn's River Falls and River tubing both were fun, fun, fun!

          Dunn's River is a MUST. My co-worker recommended this tour before we left, and I told her that I was not interested. She told me that she would not speak to me if I did not go. Well my trip was nearing and I looked once again to make sure that I did all the tours that we were interested in. I wasn't too excited about it, but my finance said to give it a try. I am sooooo happy that I did...I think it was the best part of the trip. If I ever go back it will be one of the first tours that I do.

            We did a tour that included Appleton Tours, YS Falls and the Black River. We did the tour through Jamaica Tours, but I think other groups offer a similar tour. All three were worth doing. YS Falls was really nice and not all that crowded.

            We also did a Plantation tour that was a nice half day tour.

              The night time zip lining looks super fun also. Has anyone done that?

                I did the tour that they have set up. It was a great time!!! From Negril it will take about an hr and a half to get to the location for the canopy tour. We left at 9 am and did not get back to Negril till 430pm. It was a longer day than expected. They orig said we would be back into town by 2. So we missed our reservation for the spa. But they corrected that the next day. So plan a later dinner for that night .. depending on which day and which time you decide on going. I wish they had something closer but this is where they offer. You got a FB? If you do ... PM me and I can send my info and you can see the pics of the tour and such.

                  We did the zipline canopy tour last year (we stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean). It was soooo fun! I would totally recommend it! The tour guides / guys who hooked you up on the ziplines we very funny and added to the fun times. There were a bunch of shorter lines, and then the final one was a HUGE one over a HUGE valley. The views were awesome and I have great memories from it. A few things to be prepared for:
                  It is some hiking on some un-even terrain, so make sure to bring sneakers if you plan on doing this tour. You'll be the most comfortable.
                  Also, plan to be gone most of the day. It takes awhile to get to the canopy tour place, plus our van stopped to pick up other people at other resorts (including non-sandals resorts), so it did feel like a long drive there. But you get to see another side of jamaica and our bus driver was great and gave us lots of interesting info about jamaica. I am really glad we did this tour/excursion!

                    Be sure to schedule your Dunns river excursion for a day that the cruise ships are not in town- it won't be quite as crowded!!
