MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, Saturday February 10th, 2018 – Following the success of the groundbreaking MINI-Routes tours launched in Jamaica in early 2017, the pioneering Tour Operator Island Routes Caribbean Adventures has introduced three new routes in Jamaica.
The tours let adventure seekers explore the real Jamaica while driving their very own MINI Cooper to destinations such as Negril, Ocho Rios, Portland, and Montego Bay. Each tour features an expert island escort who will lead guests in their own island-inspired MINI. After a full introduction to driving in Jamaica, guests can hop in and see what makes Jamaica one of the most iconic Caribbean destinations.
The addition of these new routes, which include a full-day tour to Portland, the birthplace of tourism, as well as half-day options around Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, offer a broader choice of tour options to travellers visiting Jamaica. The tours take visitors to explore various culinary, historical, and adventure locations along Jamaica’s picturesque north coast.
The MINI-Routes to Portland route takes guests to see a side of the island most visitors haven’t experienced, including a true cultural immersion where guests get to learn about Jamaica’s heritage, see some traditional Jamaican folk dancing, and taste some authentic jerk. Guests will also enjoy a stop at a plantation and discover some of the locations in which Jamaica inspired famous writers such as James Bond’s Ian Fleming and the playwright Noel Coward.
The brand new MINI-Routes Montego Bay Half Day route will take explorers in and around the popular town of Montego Bay. For guests looking for a slice of island life, half day tours are the perfect choice. Guests will enjoy one of Jamaica’s famed bamboo rafting adventure down a scenic river, explore the historical port of Falmouth, enjoy duty-free shopping, and see first-hand how the world-famous Jamaican jerk is made at a truly iconic jerk centre.
The MINI-Routes Ocho Rios Half Day experience is a true island immersion. Guests get to visit a beautiful waterfall for short climb and swim in the freshwater pools, visit a traditional working farm and sample local fruits, head to a jerk centre to see just how Jamaican jerk gets its delicious flavor, and enjoy local sweet treats at an island favorite!
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to launch three new tours, including one in my own hometown of Montego Bay; to be able to share a personal slice of Jamaica with the world,” commented Adam Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Island Routes. “From the outset our MINI-Routes tours have been centred around the experience, which is why the latest adventures take visitors to some of the island’s most famous spots, including my absolute favourite tour, bamboo river rafting.”
Each of the newly launched Island Routes Caribbean Adventures MINI-Routes tours give guests a chance to learn about Jamaica’s colorful history, explore the island’s various culinary treats and experience its famous locations.
