Book a rafting trip down the Rio Grande and stop at Belinda's riverside open-to-the-air picnic area. Best salt fish & akee I've ever tasted.

After an hour a rafting down the river, you come around the bend and there is Bleinda cooking up a storm. Her crawfish and chicken were so good. Our plates were filled to the brim. We left full and happy!!

Halfway through a quiet, beautiful raft ride down the Rio Grande, we pulled over to the bank for lunch. The smells emanating from the small kitchen were amazing and my wife and I had the best meal we'd had in our two week trip to...More

An essential stop when rafting down the Rio Grande (as recommended by Captain Granville!). We ate delicious Jerk Chicken cooked over a hot stone fire, accompanied by rice with beans and salad. All washed down with a cold Red Stripe. perfect!

This lady is an institution. She has a barbecue on the bank of the Rio Grande river at Port Antonio. You can only reach it by bamboo raft! I'm serious. You can google Belinda's Rio Grande Port Antonio and it will come up. This lady cooks the greatest spicy crayfish and fried chicken ever. Look at my profile- I've eaten all around the world, I'm not joking. I ate their today and it broke my heart to see other tourists rafting by and not taking their lunch there because they didn't know about it. This lady needs a break and Tripadvisor can help. Not out of sympathy, but just great food
