Day Tours in Jamaica

My 6 mo pregnany wife and I will be spending a week in Montego Bay. We are looking for a nice low key day trip (possibly in Negril). We'd love to try one of the waterfall walks, but not sure if that's the best idea for a pregnant lady! At any rate, can you all make some recommendations and also provide approx pricing? Thanks!

With your wife being 6 months pregnant, I personally would not like to see her subjected to the road heading east out of town Though IMHO its gets much more "tropical" (think mountains) as you travel towards Ocho Rios, the road is currently horrible going that way. Consider going the other direction with and get an early start to Negril and spend the day on that GREAT beach. Possibly look into gettting a "dayrate" for a room at somewhere like Coco La Palm(road is better that way) have a nice lunch at a place like Normas on the beach . You would also enjoy visiting the West End to view the cliffs and possibly a very early dinner at Rockhouse before scooting back to MBJ.

Negril's beach makes MoBay's a piker, but it's not necessarily low-key. Go to COSMO'S, with bar/restaurant/showers-changing area/sports gear rentals and chaises and less hassle/more time to enjoy good lunch/beach. On the way back, have your driver go thru Sav/Savannah La Mar to Ferris Cross and take the inland route, B8, to MoBay,
stopping at 'The Coconut Jelly Man' roadside in Haddo near Whithorn, and
after 3 in afternoon, the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary in Anchovey, 15 min/this
side of MoBay where you can feed doctorbirds/hummingbirds by hand in a very low-key setting. Bring camera.
Mayfields Falls, another half-day
trip, in the Dolphin Head Mts., is the gentlest of the falls and least commercialized. Dunn's River is far too steep for your wife and a longer trip
as is YS Falls on South Coast. Talk to
Chef and Libby at Cheftours or Carolyn
Barrett at www.barrettadventures.com
to put together some interesting diversions for you.
