    bring your water shoes... Total tourist trap, but one of those things that is a destination worth checking out. It's always busy so don't expect to have the falls to yourself.

    TAKE YOUR TIME! It's not a race to the top... The faster you go, the less entertaining it is IMHO.

    Dunns River Falls is a great excursion while vacationing in Jamaica. A big group of us went and we had the whole bus to ourselves. The climb itself is amazingly fun as we had to form a human chain. Definitely bring your own water shoes or you can rent a pair at a stand right before the falls. We had to leave all belongings on the bus - you cannot really bring anything with you except waterproof cameras. No bags. Have a great time!

    Agreed with some of the reviews already. Not a race, take your time. I really enjoyed just sitting and swimming in a few of the pools, or sliding down the rocks. I went as a kid, but had very fond memories of this. It was definitely a touristy thing to do, but I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    As far as Dunn's River Falls goes, it is a must do if you are in the Ocho Rios area. The only reason I do not give this attraction a 5 star rating is the amount of commercialism involved. The beauty of the falls is obvious. It is a very unique set of falls in that you climb them in a human chain. The guides are great and a good time is to be had by all. I have done this more than once but you probably will only get one chance to do it, so why not? You should bring your own water shoes if possible. They do rent them there but I prefer to have my own. You will need the kind that have really good grip, to prevent and slippage while climbing. Do be prepared for the onslaught of vendors that attempt to sell you various trinkets, pictures, etc. I would just look at this tour as a way to experience the beauty of Jamaica but knowing that it is a TOURIST attraction. The locals actually come out to play on the beach and climb the falls, so it is a big deal to them. Take as many pictures as possible because it really is a diamond set amidst the tropical beauty of Jamaica.

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 ... read more
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.
