What you will visit:

Shaw Park Gardens
Located high on a hilltop with stunning views of Ocho Rios, the manicured Shaw Park botanical gardens covers 25 acres of blooming splendor. Contained within the 600-acre plantation grounds, the gardens once produced sugarcane and oranges and have been a showcase for native Jamaican fruits and flowers since the early 1900s. Stroll through with a knowledgeable guide and take in the beautiful vistas and brightly colored blossoms.

Dunn's River Falls
One of Jamaica's national treasures, Dunn's River Falls is a breathtaking beauty and one of the only waterfalls in the world that empties directly into the sea. From approximately 600 feet high, sparkling water cascades over natural stepping platforms that allow you to climb from the bottom to the top. A frequent sight is a group of enthusiastic climbers, holding hands in a chain, as they're led to the top of the waterfall by a trained guide. For visitors who prefer not to get wet, a walkway along the side of the falls allows you to take full advantage of the experience. Please note that Dunn's River Falls can be very slippery in places. Wear sturdy rubber soled shoes or rent them shoreside.

What you will see along the way:
Once a fishing village, Ocho Rios, situated on the north coast of the island, is a thriving port that still maintains its unspoiled charms. Your motorcoach ride meanders through the lush, unspoiled interior of Ocho Rios winding past coastline vistas, local schools, churches and rural Jamaican villages.

Snack:
A refreshing beverage is served in the serene environment of Shaw Park.

Shopping:
Your delightful day includes a stop for shopping in the town of Ocho Rios at a duty free shopping center for fun souvenirs.
