What you will visit:

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.

Note: This tour does not include climbing the rocks. A walkway along the side of the falls permits you to take full advantage of the experience and to stop at various platforms and balconies to take in the views and photograph the area.

Konoko River Gardens
Located 400 feet above sea level, Konoko River Gardens is a botanical oasis.Sprawling gardens, sparkling koi fishponds, natural springs, and effervescent waterfalls delight, and knowledgeable guides are on hand to discuss the flora and fauna indigenous to the area. On the property, a museum showcases Jamaican and Spanish architecture, houses a collection of artifacts and trinkets dedicated to the island's history, and focuses on the Taino/Arawak people, Jamaica's first inhabitants.

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.

Shopping:
The Island Village Shopping Center, a replica of a traditional Jamaican village, offers an array of jewelry, watches, coffee, rum and handicraft souvenirs.

Special Notes:

There are viewing platforms at the top of the falls via ramps. However, there are steps and no ramps going further down the falls. Besides viewing the falls, swimming is available at the bottom of the falls in the beach. Wear a swim suit and bring a towel should you choose this activity. There are approximately 15 steps to climb at Konoko River Gardens, but there are ramps. Tour sequence may vary.

There is limited space available on this tour. Collapsible wheelchairs/walkers can be folded and stored. Participants must be able to negotiate 2 to 3 steps up into the transportation. Children under 3 feet are not permitted to climb the Falls.
