    Only waterfall I know that you can climb up! It's VERY touristy but they have it quite well organized. It really is a unique experience, I don't know that there is anywhere else in the world where you can climb a waterfall!

    You can't really go to Ocho Rios and not go to the Falls.
    It is the most popular attraction there.
    Basically you form a human chain and climb up the water falls.
    When you are done there is some local shopping to be done.
    A bit touristy but a must if you are in the area.

    Climbing the falls was fun and challenging. There were a few steep and slippery spots that made you have to stay focused and work hard, but for the most part it is a pretty relaxing hike uphill. Our guide kept splashing everyone when they were trying to climb which was fairly annoying. They do allow you to take your camera at your own risk (bring a waterproof camera) and the tour guides will take your picture at various spots throughout the climb. Pretty fun trip, kids would love this!

    This is a must see for any trip to Ocho Rios. Climb to the top of the 700 ft waterfall and meet many new friends along the way.

    Take this fun trek up the middle of the falls...hold on tight against the force of the water. Groups take this trip multiple time throughout the day.

    The island's number one attraction and well worth the visit! We recommend you visit on Sundays or early mornings when there are no cruise ships , in order to avoid the crowds!

    This picture is a little different from the time we went. We climbed big rocks with huge water falls and sat right in the middle of one of the water fall. It was just awesome, what a great place to visit and COOL DOWN. Just one of the many things to do there.

    Went up twice, once with the guides, and once without. The first time is was with the guides and super packed with climbers. Enjoyed the second time when it was more empty. Kinda fun. Definitely need your water shoes.

    A Jamaican landmark and a fun day out, Dunn's River Falls is part climb, part beach hangout. It is quite exhilarating - you will want to do it again. You can find your own route and climb the falls yourself, or you can link with the many guides (and tourists) who will show you the 'easy' route up. Either way, be sure to have the proper footwear because the rocks can be slippery.
    There are many gifts you can buy on site and wooden the carvings are amazing. All in all, Dunn's River is a must see with Ocho Rios a brief cab ride way.

    Touristy waterfall that is crowded especially when on cruise port days. Yet, Dunn's River Falls beautiful cascades is still beautiful and full of character, otherwise not so many people would come to take dips, climb up the falls and take loads of pictures right?

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 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.
