Anticipating great visitor turnout, Chukka Caribbean Adventures, which won the World Travel Awards Caribbean's Leading Nature Adventure Excursion Operator in 2010, the fourth consecutive year, is offering exciting tours in Falmouth, including the Chukka horse and buggy ride through historical Falmouth and the Falmouth historical highlights, beach break and lunch tour.

Watch CruiseGuy speak about Falmouth's new pier and Chukka Caribbean Adventures: 


Chukka horse and buggy ride through historical Falmouth:
Falmouth traces its history to 1700s when it was a leading port town in the Caribbean. In the 1800s, when sugar was the king, it became the wealthiest town in Jamaica. The guided tour provides the visitor a unique insight into the history of this region as it takes him past the planters’ dwellings and the administrative buildings that still stand today. One can gain a first hand perspective of the lifestyle of the people of this working town, admire the Georgian architecture, and experience the culture and heritage of this beautiful island. The guide will manoeuvre the horse and buggy through the streets and provide an interesting commentary on the places passed.

Falmouth historical highlights, beach break and lunch tour:
This guided tour takes the visitor on a scenic drive through the historic town of Falmouth. The guide will offer many interesting facts about the transformation of the port, which was once used for sugar exports, to this newly constructed cruise ship pier. There will be a stop at Water Square, which was the first place in the western hemisphere to have running water, even before New York City. The tour then proceeds to the Chukka’s pristine white sand beach for a sumptuous lunch. There will be the opportunity to spend some lazy hours on the beach or take a plunge in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.
