Dunn's River Falls

Dunn's River Falls is a famous waterfall near Ocho Rios, Jamaica and a major Caribbean tourist attraction. The falls empty into the Caribbean Sea. It is one of the very few rivers in the world that actually fall directly into the sea.

The waterfalls are staggered and span some 180 metres (600 feet). Several small lagoons exist there, interspersed between the vertical sections of the falls. Climbing up the waterfalls is a popular tourist activity and is often, but not exclusively performed with the help of tour guides from the park. The side of the falls is covered with lush, green vegitation that help shade the area from the sun. This helps keep the water cool as people try and climb the waterfall. The falls can be walked up with relative ease, often a human chain is used snaking up the falls behind the tour guide.

1st time in Jamaica (via Carnival Cruise) back in Nov. & I had a blast. My mother's side of my family is from Jamaica (Kingston), so to experience this place was awesome. Can't wait to do it again!!

It’s a beautiful place. If you are new to rock climbing, waterfall climbing, or just scared of heights think twice. Otherwise DON’T miss this amazing place!

James Bond (Sean Connery) and Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) are seen at these falls shortly after meeting and avoiding the Crab Cay guards in Dr No (1962).

Definitely find a guide and a group with which to climb the falls. Wear rubber shoes. The water might feel cold, but the climb will warm you up! Have fun! It's a fantastic experience!

The earlier you visit the better. Vegetation is everywhere so you get that tropical vibes feelings. Take your food items with you if you wish or you may purchase from the onsite vendors.
