Dunn’s River Falls – Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Perhaps the most celebrated beauty spot in the Ocho Rios area. Dunn’s River Falls is not to be missed. The waterfall, which cascades over wedding cake tiers of smooth rock directly onto the beach, offers a challenging climb to the top-600 feet up. But don’t be discouraged if you are not athletic, as it is much easier than it looks and experienced guides are always willing to assist. This breathtaking site is definitely a “bucket list” worthy experience.
Dunn’s River Falls is one of Jamaica’s national treasures. Globally, it is as well known as Reggae and equally stimulating. There are few places where the Arawak name “Xayamaca” – land of rivers and springs – is more apt. The Spaniards called the area “Las Chorreras” – the waterfalls or springs – and it is truly one of the most beautiful spots on the island. A stone’s throw from Ocho Rios, one of Jamaica’s fastest growing resort centres, Dunn’s River Falls is unique. Described as a living and growing phenomenon, it continuously regenerates itself from deposits of travertine rock, the result of precipitation of calcium carbonate from the river, as it flows over the falls. The small dome-shaped cataracts are usually associated with thermal spring activity found in limestone caves. This, combined with its location near to the sea, gives Dunn’s River the distinction of being the only one of its kind in the Caribbean, if not the world.

This is an eco-friendly attraction with an adventurous twist. Located next to the world-famous Dunns River Falls, take the Sky Explorer (a chairlift ride) up to the top of this 700-foot mountain.

Also home to a great restaurant, recharge with a sumptuous lunch. 866-759-8726
