Dunn's River Falls Tours

Dunn's River Falls is a spectacular White River waterfall near Ocho Rios in Jamaica, where cold mountain water cascades 1,000 feet (300 meters) down naturally terraced steps. Those interested in geology will be fascinated with the way the world-famous falls renew themselves via regular deposits of calcium carbonate and sodium, while movie movie buffs will recognize them from films such as ‘Dr. No’ and ‘Cocktail.’

The Basics
While there’s plenty of swimming, sunbathing, and sightseeing opportunities at the falls, many visitors make it a goal to climb the 600-foot (182-meter) terraced falls. You can do so independently or with a waterfall guide on a Dunn's River Falls tour. Guided options are popular for the safety precautions and assistance provided by the local guides during the trek. Stop at one of the lagoons, admire the natural wonder from the top, and be sure to take a dip to cool off.
 
Families will enjoy the swim; the water is mountain runoff and fairly cold, which is perfect on particularly hot days. The site is also close to Ocho Rios' land and sea attractions, restaurants, and the Caribbean coast. Many Dunn's River Falls tours combine a visit to the falls and park with river tubing, a shopping tour in Ocho Rios, a party cruise, or a stop at the Blue Hole or Luminous Lagoon.
  • Those who don’t wish to climb the falls can hang out at the observation deck, made for sunning and viewing.
  • You’ll find a snack bar and souvenirs for sale on the premises.
  • Wear water shoes or sandals suitable for the slippery rocks.
  • Bring cash for entrance fees (if visiting independently) and a waterproof camera.

How To Get to Dunn’s River Falls
Dunn's River Falls are about three miles (4.8 km) from Ocho Rios and about 70 (112 km) from Montego Bay. While it's a rapidly growing resort area and a popular cruise line excursion stop, the falls are relatively unspoiled, the hiking is spectacular, and both the wildlife and the rainforest foliage are abundant.

When to Get There
First thing in the morning is your best bet at this popular tourist attraction. While partying vacationers are sleeping off last night’s tropical cocktails, you can get a jump on the hike to the top without huge crowds. If you can avoid a day when cruise ships are in town, you'll be glad you thought ahead.
