What you'll do
After an easy 20min taxi ride from Ocho Rios, we will meet up at our place at 10 am : River Paradise Jamaica, a Wellness Eco Center in Rio Nuevo. Upon a Welcoming arrival to our place, we will provide you with a cup of lemongrass tea from our garden! You will then receive a yoga mat to gently set your Mind, Body and Spirit at ease, on our brand new wooden yoga deck, overlooking the crystal clear river. After an invigorating, Mindful and Relaxing 1.5h guided Yoga session instructed by either Em or Al (Hatha, Sivananda, Iyengar style) we will then explore the river bed, swim and rest for another 30 min in the natural river pool. For non swimmers, it is shallow and safe to just sit or stand to cool down. From noon to 2pm we will prepare a Brunch and cook together a delicious, healthy vegetarian meal, enjoying some very creative cuisine from Jamaican and foreign inspiration. It will be served by the river whisper, giving you a taste of the Wonders of River Paradise and it's creative and inspired cuisine. You will be drinking spring water that we bring back from a local spring a few miles away up the hill. The experience starts at 10am and finishes at 2p

Where you'll be
Our beautiful place is continuously evolving and it is unique because we have built a double store tree house around a massive tree by the river bank of Rio Nuevo. We have steps leading from our balcony down to the river where it is shallow and crystal clear outside of the rainfall time. To the distant left it gets deeper and to the right, there is rocky jacuzzi style formations. Sit, Stand, Swim, Float, Explore, Sun bath, Rejuvenate!
