Explore Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica
Known as Jamaica’s national treasure, Dunn’s River Falls is just a stone throw away from the vibrant city of Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This self-perpetuating 600 feet waterfall consists of fresh mountain spring water, which elegantly flows over a series of stone steps and into the Caribbean Sea. Visitors have the opportunity to climb the falls in a human chain led by an experienced Fall Guide and to pause at a nearby massage parlor, as you take in the soothing effects of the cascading water.
After a full day of shopping in the park, climbing waterfalls, and lounging in one of Dunn’s River Falls’ natural pools, nothing tops off your activity-filled day like total rest and recuperation. And no other place conveys this more than the Jamaica Inn.
Now, don’t be fooled by its ordinary name, as these spacious and tasteful suites and cottages are nowhere near the ordinary. Whether you stay in the White Suite, which comes fully equipped with your own pool, private peninsula and luxurious marble bathroom; or you reside in one of Jamaica Inn’s two-story one-bedroom cottages with stunning views just beyond its French doors, a private cove, infinity pool, and endless ocean views.
Whether you are in the mood for thrill or relief, the Caribbean will satisfy all travelers’ desires. Known for its crystal-clear waters, flourishing jungles, and brilliantly white sandy beaches, the Caribbean Islands are the essence of paradise.
