Go to Dunn’s River Falls Park on a scenic sightseeing tour, and watch the cascading waters of one of Jamaica’s national treasures just a stone’s throw from Ocho Rios.
Following your pick-up in Ocho Rios or Falmouth, enjoy the short 10-minute uphill drive to Dunn’s River Falls, and then follow the path and stairway to the base. Said to be the location of the legendary Battle of Las Chorreras of 1657, the Falls found new fame as a location in the James Bond blockbuster movie “Dr No.”
Those looking for adventure can climb the natural steps and crevices. Dunn’s River guides are available to help you along the way. It can also be completed without a guide for those with more experience and confidence, though it should be noted that it’s a challenging climb. Water shoes or sandals are essential, and can be rented if you don’t have your own.
For those who prefer, there are several points on the adjoining path where you can access the river with ease. Enjoy the pulsating flow of water over your body without having to climb. Your exhilarating massage from Mother Nature will spur you on to the top.
Take a brief tour of the countryside surrounding Ocho Rios, including the rain-forest of Fern Gully. Then, enjoy some free time at the craft markets, or stock up on duty free items at the city center malls. If time allows, continue to Island Village for more shopping and a glass of something refreshing at Jimmy Buffet’s famous Margaritaville Bar and Restaurant.
Tours are designed to be flexible and cater to your groups needs. You might want to try some jerk chicken or other Jamaican specialty, or enjoy a bit of beach time to relax and swim. Your guide will allow time for photo opportunities, and is open to any requests you may have.
