Description
Geologists describe it as a “living phenomenon”. Googly-eyed couples say it is “impossibly romantic”. Kids think it’s “really cool and fun to slide down”. Jamaica calls it a “national treasure” and ... Read more
you’ll probably agree. An easy, guided one-hour hike will get you to these forest-enshrouded falls. The cascades, near Ocho Rios, tumble 600 feet down over terraced stone that is continuously being restructured from deposits of calcium carbonate and sodium derived from the river water. Bond fans and 80’s movie buffs will recognize the falls, that spill directly into the ocean, as a filming location used in both “Dr. No” and the Tom Cruise film, Cocktail.

Dunns river is a must! We had alot of fun. The tour guide was cool. It was a good hike up the falls. Make sure you wear water shoes and make sure you look where you are stepping. There are many crevices that you can fall into so be very careful. Bring a waterproof case for your phone or camera so you can take lots of pictures.

This attraction is a must-do but if you plan on climbing the falls, wear a swim suit or wear one under your clothes and bring swim shoes. They will cost you $10 if you buy one at the Falls. Be prepared to get wet.

I climbed the first tier and grew tired. You have to keep up with the group and will be holding hands most of the way up. It is a group effort and the steps are quite steep. You should be physically fit and if you tire easily, do not try. You have to sign a waiver.

I basically did the first tier which was the hardest but there are other levels, less intimidating. I opted to take photos while my husband did the trip up the
Falls. See my photos at my personal blog, at www. wisertraveller.org.

During the rest periods, the guides may throw you backwards into the small pools --which is fun to watch and looks a lot of fun to do, too. The guides video and photograph you on the way up and you can purchase the souvenirs at the end of the hike.

Definitely a worthwhile excursion as this trip is one-of-a-kind and the guides are funny too.

There are vendors at the end of the hike where you can purchase carvings and other souvenirs. This is the place to buy items to take back home, too, since there are few items to buy that is inexpensive at your hotel.

The Dunns River Falls is a must see and do in Jamaica. Starting on the beach, you climb up this 700 waterfall with a guide over about an hour. The climb gets tough in certain parts, but it's an accomplishment to get to the top after weathering through rocks and gushing water every step of the way.

No trip to Jamaica is complete without a trip to the famous Dunns River falls. The #1 tourist attraction is no more than 10mins drive from Garden House.

It's a very touristy thing to do, but if you're in the area you've gotta go -- no matter how cool you think you are. I thought I was too cool for it, but I loved it.

Went on a boat trip with a falls visit. Boat was great fun, loads of drink. You can some great pictures of the falls, but you miss out on getting wet.

Climbing the waterfall is fun but this place is super popular and completely overcrowded -- especially when the cruise ships are in.
