Many tourists are intrigued by the tales and legends surrounding Martha Brae. According to the legends and what the locals know, there was once a witch who was captured by the Spanish conquistadores because she apparently knew the place where the treasures and gold were hidden. The witch led the Spanish soldiers to a cave where she left them and used her powers so that the river engulfed them and eventually killed them. After this, the witch changed the course of the river so that no person will eventually be killed by their greed for the treasure.

If you are interested to experience the Martha Brae rafting adventure, it is highly recommended that you take the river tour with a special someone. The tranquility and romantic mood of the place will make the two of you even closer. Try the adventure when you visit Jamaica and you surely would not regret the experience.
