Our favourite travel couple Calee and Stephen have come to the end of their Jamaican adventure (for now). For months we’ve watched them experience everything from climbing the cascading Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios, to tubing on the White River, swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove, parasailing at Cosmo’s Beach in Negril, touring the haunted rooms of the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay, riding in an aerial canopy tour and taking a bobsled coaster ride through a tropical rainforest at Mystic Mountain and so much more. Watch now, as they relive their amazing journey in the “Pon Di Road Recap”:
Don’t worry if you’ve missed out on any of the action, the entire season of “Pon Di Road” is still available for your viewing pleasure on our My Jamaica YouTube Channel and as a special treat we’ve decided to share with you the 10 most viewed webisodes of the season:

From bobsledding through a rainforest and tubing down a river, to cliff diving, water sliding, parasailing and not to mention all the food along the way. Travel buffs Calee and Stephen have had their share of mind blowing Jamaican experiences, still they keep coming back for more! On the brink of the premiere of the 17th webisode of “Pon Di Road in Jamaica”, here’s the roundup of “Pon Di Road #16 – Visit to The Caves Resort in the Capital of Casual, Negril”.
Poised on the limestone cliffs of Negril’s scenic West End in Jamaica, The Caves captures all the essence of a seductive oceanfront sanctuary. Twelve exclusive cliffside accommodations, a Private Cave Dining, a sensual Cave Rum & Cigar Bar, and a seaview Aveda Amenity Spa offer a refreshingly organic interpretation of romance. Located close to Negril’s stunning seven-mile beachfront and endless azure waters, The Caves evokes the exoticism of the unexplored while offering all the comforts of home living. It is here that these two find themselves after parasailing at Cosmo’s Beach.
There’s never a dull moment when Stephen and Calee are on the loose, they just can’t get enough of Jamaica’s wide range of exciting attractions. When we last saw them they were sliding down the waterslides at Kool Runnings Water Park in Negril, the only one of it’s kind in the Caribbean. Now, on the brink of tomorrow’s premiere of Pon Di Road webisode #14, here’s the roundup of “Pon Di Road #13 – Rick’s Cafe”!
Rick’s Cafe in Negril is famous for its great food, its unrivaled view of the sunset and above all it’s cliff diving. You can either watch the professional cliff jumping displays or participate yourself if you’re feeling the daredevil spirit. Countless visitors and locals have jumped or dived from the cliff and into the crystalline water below. The highest platform jump is 35 feet and ensures the thrill of a lifetime, though some choose to jump from even higher points from tree limbs. Let’s watch how far these two go.
Remember to tune in to our My Jamaica YouTube Channel tomorrow at 5pm for the premiere of the latest Pon Di Road webisode to see where Stephen and Calee will take us next!
