Dunn’s River Falls is one of Jamaica’s national treasures. It is one of the most popular attractions in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.  The Spaniards called this area “Las Chorreras”, the waterfalls or springs and it is truly one of the most beautiful spots on the island.

Dunn’s River Falls is described as a living and growing phenomenon, it continuously regenerates itself from deposits of travertine rock. Dunn’s River Falls had the distinction of being the only one of its kind in the Caribbean, if not the world.

Visitors climb the Falls in a human chain led by an experienced Falls Guide. You will pause at the “massage parlour” and experience the soothing effects of the water as it cascades to the sea.  If you decide not to climb the Falls, you can follow along at the safe vantage point of the terrace or deck on the side of the Falls.

For those who love mother’s nature’s gifts you can lose yourself in lush tropical foliage – ferns, bamboos, ginger lilies, crotons, orchids and a variety of palms and breadfruit trees.
