Set aside a day to visit Portland, Jamaica's easternmost parish, where a bamboo raft trip down the Rio Grande River provides the island's most irresistibly romantic attraction. The river was long used to transport bananas from field to port, on narrow rafts made from stalks of bamboo. But it's said that Errol Flynn frequented this "lover's lane" with local girls in the 1950s, and soon the river's potential as a languid tourist attraction was born.
