Mystic Mountain Adventure Park is the best way to see the beautiful tourist city of Ocho Rios and also the place to have amazing adventures. As the name suggests, the attraction at this park is the 700ft mystic mountain that visitors travel up to via chairlift. That’s when the adventure starts! At Mystic Mountain, there is a range of activities to do including bobsledding, birdwatching, sky exploring, and ziplining.

Wata Land Park

Wata Land Park is one of the best-kept secrets in Jamaica’s rural area. The eco-water park in the White River Valley Area of St. Ann and St. Mary, features a three-acre beach lake with a 5,000sq ft floating inflatable aqua park at the centre of the lake. There are also three major slides and an obstacle course for those adrenaline-junkies. The park is the perfect place for kayaking, sailing, swimming and even hiking. Small children are not allowed in the large shallow lake, but there is a water play area especially for children that offers its own slides along with splash pad.
