        hey!
        i checked this site a few weeks ago just to get an idea of what we can do.
        take a look.
        just an idea. find out what tour package company your hotel deals with and work from there.
        here's the link. the site is pretty informative.
        JTL - Jamaica Tours Limited
        keep in mind the prices of activities are pretty pricey in JA. but worth every pretty penny!
        good luck!

          We were thinking the same. I've been looking on Trip Advisor and found some very reputable tour companies outside of our resort. Some of the men coming are interested in deep sea fishing and I found it for $50 cheaper and they pick you up. Were also getting a tour guide to take ourselves and two other couples on a private tour so we can choose what and for how long we want to see something.

            Defiantly go and see Dunn's River Falls...we took the Cool Runnings Tour and you go on a boat, snorkel and then climb the falls...so much fun!
            On other trips to Jamaica we went to the Appleton Rum Factory, YS Falls, and swam with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove.

              Here are a couple of tour companies that are always recommended by the regulars on Tripadvisor and some other Jamaican message boards:

              Welcome to Clive's Transport Service Jamaica - Taxi and Tours Jamaica - Taxi and Tours Jamaica - Lucea - Negril, Jamaica W. I.
              .::Talk Of The Town Tours ::.

              It seems that both of them will customize a tour for you (or accommodate groups) and the driver will come with you to the craft market, stores, etc., to ensure that you are comfortable and safe.

                  I used Clive's this past September for roundtrip transfers to Negril... cheapest that I found and the greatest service! I recommend him highly. I know he does several tours as well.

                      I just returned (last night) from Ocho Rios and used Lee's Taxi & Tours [http://www.leestours.com] to book our tours/excursions to H'Evan Scent for zip lining, an Ocho Rios Highlight Tour which included Dunn's River Falls, deep sea fishing, Appleton Rum Factory, rafting on Martha Brae, and shopping trips into Ocho Rios. The drivers/tour guides were incredible and Norm is the best! Lee's serves Ocho Rios, Negril, Montego Bay, etc. Whatever you want or need Norm will make it happen. Good luck and enjoy your time in Jamaica.
