Our December 13, 2015 Cruising Writers Writing Retreat stops at Falmouth, Jamaica during the 7-day Caribbean cruise. Would you rather explore the island than relax on the beach? Dunn’s River Falls is a great destination for more active retreaters.
Dunn’s River Falls is located about one hour west of Falmouth, Jamaica near Ocho Rios, and one of the largest tourist attractions in Jamaica. Known for its stair-stepped falls and lagoons, Dunn’s River Falls offers an intermediate-level hiking experience among lush, tropical vegetation.
While exploring the falls, why not take a chairlift to the top of Mystic Mountain? Mystic Mountain towers over the falls and is home to an arts and crafts village. There is also a restaurant with amazing views of Jamaica. You have options to get back down the mountain. Either take the fast trip on the Rainforest Canopy Zipline ride or hop on the Rainforest Jamaican Bobsled, with a stop at the beautiful Dunn’s River Falls on the way back to the beach.
