One of the best, most popular and most famous excursions in the Caribbean is Dunn’s River Falls near Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
Think of it as one giant water park made by nature.
Visitors climb up 600 feet to the top. That may sound like a big climb, but most visitors are too busy having fun to notice.
The falls consist of a series of pools, steps and mini-falls that give people plenty of time to enjoy themselves, conserve their energy and, of course, get plenty wet.
Climbers actually form a daisy chain — holding hands with each other — in order to get to the top with minimal chance of slipping or getting hurt.
Because the climb is both fun and easy, many families with young children make the trek to the top.
The best part of all is reaching the top and frollicking in the water for some great splashy fun.
The cost to enter the park is $15 for adults and $12 for children for anyone who can drive there.
Visitors coming from longer distances such as the cruise port at Ocho Rios should expect to pay $40 and higher for adults. Visitors from Montego Bay might pay $60 and higher.
