Hello, beautiful people! Today, I want to share what we did during the short time we were in Falmouth, Jamaica. I know it’s been a while since I’ve talked about our Disney Cruise. I felt it was only right to share more for anyone planning to go this summer or in the near future. If you haven’t checked out my previous blog post about our Disney Cruise, you can check it out by clicking here. We had such an amazing time and the excursions were even better! I will post about adventure in Cozumel, Mexico and San Juan, Puerto Rico soon.
One of the port stops on our Disney Cruise was Falmouth, Jamaica. Jamaica has always been on my bucket list. To find out that was one of our stops, I was super excited! When we got off of the cruise ship, we went through a small shopping area where tourists could shop and buy whatever. Then we walked towards our tour bus. We decided to do the Martha Brae River Rafting excursion. Included in that excursion was a tour of the city, a tour of The Anglican Church also known as the Parish Church of St. Peter. This was the first public church in Jamaica. But of course, the main deal with excursion was the river rafting. We wanted to do something different yet in a timely manner because we only had a couple of hours in Falmouth.
We heard so many great things about the Martha Brae River. To go rafting down the river and enjoying its beauty was something we looked forward to doing. The workers at this establishment were so friendly and awesome. Our captain, Captain Murphy was so humble and down to earth. He answered all of our questions and gave us a lot of inside scoop about Jamaica. I thought people only said “Yea, Mon” just to say it. Captain Murphy stated is a very frequent saying that most people say in Jamaica. He also stated that “No Problem” really meant they didn’t have any problems and they lived their lives carefree.
Although this was our first time in Jamaica, I admire the people and the culture so much. Even though it was a small portion of Jamaica that we go to see, you can tell that they enjoy their lives and blessings. And they work hard to do what they have to do for themselves and their families. They really stand by their saying “No Problem, Mon.” If you are looking for something to do in Jamaica, this is an adventure you don’t want to pass up. Not only was it so peaceful, the scenery was breathtaking. Just make sure you spray a lot of bug spray though. The ride was 90 minutes. Another cool fact is that they build the rafts themselves! How cool is that?! Captain Murphy stated it takes them a day and a half to build them so that they are secure and water safe.
This blog doesn’t do much justice. I vlogged our adventure on my vlogging channel so feel free to check it out here! Trust me, you will love this! Look it up and see for yourself! 🙂
