We booked a private transfer via Ultimate Excursions & Tours & Taxi Service prior to coming on the cruise. Their communication from beginning to end was amazing. I told them what we would really like to do for our visit to Jamaica and they sorted it for us. Hooves is where they took us for our horse ride into the Caribbean, it was amazing. Once the horses get going in the sea its incredible. The guys who took us out were great. Read Less

The horseback riding was amazing. Our guides were very careful and informative. They talked about many areas we were passing on the trail, Jamaican spices-with examples picked for us to smell and Jamaican culture.

Riding with the saddles on the ground was very nice and the guides were tons of fun. Riding in the ocean was painful for me. There was only a pad and I could feel every bone in the horse's spine.

Our taxi driver whisked us directly to our plantation stables, no wasting time in the port terminal waitig for a shuttle bus to slowly fill. Our horseback ride was a good 3hrs and absolutely gorgeous. Our horse did more than entire the water a few yards and the shimmy back to shore, they walked out quite a ways from shore and swam back and forth several times. There was a photographer who for $15.00 took several pictures of us and edited them into a keepsake DVD which featured shots of our ride we'd not taken pics of ourselves. We were given a snack of carmelized plantains, offered water, soft drinks, beers or juices and there were very reasonably priced curios and jewelry to buy without the aggressiveness of a "craft village". This excursion was impressive and a great value for the price. Read Less

The Chukka people know how to operate an excursion and do a fine job. Horseback riding, especially in the surf, was totally amazing especially for my daughter, whose experience was limited to ponies and carousels.

I don't care how many times I go to Jamaica - I would ride horseback along the coast again and again. I would probably not climb the falls again on the same day (OUCH!) but I would take this excursion again! Lunch was jerk chicken at a local and beautiful restaurant.

Short ride through some rough ground, then on to a ride through the water! The first part was through some rough ground and not really that exciting, except the fact we were in Jamaica! The real fun was in the water. It's like nothing I have experienced before. I'm not an experienced rider, but love horses, and this was something I had always wanted to do. Totally loved the water part although would like to have had more time! Read Less

The horseback riding in Jamiaca was FANTASTIC! The staff was so friendly and helpful and they were willing to take pictures for the customers. The horses seemed a bit skinny but very well behaved and used to the situation. You do ride very close to each other on the trail ride but you get to see beautiful scenery. The horseback riding through the ocean was exhilirating. So fun! I would do it again in a heartbeat. Got fun and beautiful pictures from the whole experience. Jamaica is a beautiful country-very green. Fell in love with it right away. Be careful of the people of Jamaica because you can find yourself in dangerous situations very easily. Don't let anyone escort you to a place- they will want money at the very least. We had a gentleman offer to take us to Margaritaville but we quickly noticed that he was passing the entrance to the restaurant and taking us to a shady area. I've heard this from others as well. So becareful! The straw market people are very pushy so make sure if you want something you offer the price you want to pay and stand your ground. They will try and trade items with you. We had one man agressively try and trade my husbands watch for some souviners... Scary (it wasn't even a nice watch.)The people are very rude and pushy here. There are only like two restaurants close to port that we could find. We really enjoyed Margaritaville-its a fun party restaurant but the food was good too. Read Less
