Rio Bueno, Jamaica

Rio Bueno is a small village located 32 miles (51.5 kilometers) east of Montego Bay.

The Rio Bueno Harbour is the deepest harbor in Jamaica and the site where Columbus is believed to have first touched land in Jamaica.

Visitors to Jamaica flock to this small fishing community to experience one of the most exhilarating excursions on the island: adventures along the Rio Bueno River. The river is situated in a beautiful tropical setting and movie buffs may recognize it as the location of the classic 1964 film, A High Wind in Jamaica, starring Anthony Quinn and James Coburn.

The Rio Bueno River eventually spills out into the Caribbean Sea where visitors can sunbathe on the beach and swim in the warm waters of Bengal Bay.
