Jamaica has some of the most beautiful and relaxing beaches, but those looking for a water adventure of a different sort will want to visit one of Jamaica’s six extraordinary water parks. The island’s water parks and beaches are great for families that want to cool off any time of the year.

“Jamaica offers some of the best water parks in the Caribbean,” said John Lynch, Director of the Jamaica Tourist Board. “These parks offer something for every age and excitement level, whether it’s a kiddie pool or special play area for the younger children, lazy river for those who prefer to take it easy, or tall and zooming waterslides for more adventures children, teens or even adults.”

The island’s six water parks are found on its most popular resort regions, where every member of the family can splash around and let out their inner child during a day of carefree fun.

Kool Runnings Water Park in Negril features ten exciting water slides, some which tower up to 40 feet tall, and each with a truly Jamaican name; Captain Mikie’s Coconut Island, an interactive children’s play area; a lazy river and more.  Guests who work up an appetite can seek refuge at the one of the park’s three restaurants, juice bar or sports bar.  www.koolrunnings.com

Sunset Beach Resort & Spa in Montego Bay offers its visitors the Pirate’s Paradise Water Park where they can drift along Blackbeard’s Lazy River, relax on Buccaneer Beach or explore Caribbean Pirate’s Paradise Fort which features a 40-foot high Pirate’s Plank Bridge, two rooftop Jacuzzis and two 40-foot tall shooting waterslides. Children can also commandeer a pirate ship, which boasts a kid’s section with a swimming pool and slide. www.sunsetresortsjamaica.com

An enclosed slide sends guests zooming down into the park’s swimming pool, while an open slide deposits riders right into the Caribbean Sea. Additional features include five pools with waterfalls, outdoor Jacuzzis and a rope bridge. www.sunsetresortsjamaica.com
