Turf and Surf was well worth the money. Be ready for a wild ride, hold on tight and bring a camera. Will do again

We booked the surf & turf through our hotel and a lovely woman picked us... More

Staying at Half Moon, we saw the info on the Equestrian Centre and decided to go take a look. Are we glad we did! It was a highlight of our trip to Jamaica! We did the Turf and Surf ride, where our guide, Mark, took us to the beach on our horses (Razzmo and McDread), and we rode on the... More
