Glistening Waters Luminous Lagoon
This is one of the few places on earth where you can swim with billions of microscopic organisms that glow an iridescent blue when the water is disturbed. A short boat ride out into the bay at night brings the phenomenon to life, where your captain will allow you to enter the water and glow-in-the-dark! There’s also a restaurant at the dock to grab a bite while waiting on your tour.
Walking Heritage Tour
Falmouth was laid out in the 1700s perfectly to accommodate trips around the city on foot and this still holds true today. Grab a walking tour in the city center that will take you around to some of the buildings that have been in existence since the plantation days.
If you’re not in the mood for walking, then catch the bus! A trolley to be exact. The Braemar Bus tour combines history, geography and culture into this tour around the city and gives you a chance to see a lesser-known side of Jamaica.
Add a food tour to the above itineraries, and you’re in for a treat! What a way to sample a few of Jamaica’s favorite foods including world-famous and little-known delights.
Leave it to Chukka
Chukka Tours knows how to have fun. They’ll take you on a thrilling adventure, whether you want to ride an ATV through the muddy hills of Trelawny, fly in the air on a zip-line through the foliage, go horseback riding in the sea, or take a nice easy canopy tour over the city.
Good Hope Plantation
Take a tour of a great house that was once one of the wealthiest plantation properties in Jamaica. Picnic on the 110 ft. of beachfront with soft white sands and family-friendly swimming available.
Jacob Taylor Beach
For a more rustic experience, the Jacob Taylor Beach is home to a fishing village and craft market. This is the ideal place to meet local fishermen and artisans, chill out, and enjoy the pleasant Jamaican vibe. Fresh fish, authentic Jamaican food, and charming locals are synonymous with this beautiful beach.

River Rafting or Tubing
Whichever suits you better, a trip down the Martha Brae with one of the expert licensed guides in the area will be a delight to round out your Falmouth experience. Hear the history of the river and the surrounding flora and fauna, and be entertained by guides who’ve been at this for many moons.
