Getting There

Dunn's River Falls is one of Jamaica's national treasures. There are few places where the Arawak name "Xayamaca" - land of rivers and springs - is more apparent. The Spaniards called the area "Las Chorreras", the waterfalls or springs and it is truly one of the most beautiful spots on the island. Admission fees run about $15 for adults. The vegetation and rock formations are unlike anything else. This is not a typical hiking experience because the hike is done in the falls themselves. Bring water shoes and a swim suit, and expect to be very wet. The best way to do the trip can be guided, or self guided depending on the desired experience. Guided tours are quicker, but a lot of fun, with a chance to buy a customized video of your group. Self guided tours are longer and allow individuals to explore at their leisure.

Parking is available at the park.

From Ocho Rios, head west along the main highway that follows the coast out of Ocho Rios. Follow the signs for Dunn's River Falls. It will be on the left in 2-3 miles.

One of the most popular tourist spots in Jamaica. What makes this trip a bit unique is that you start in the ocean then climb the falls all the way to the top. Anywhere from ankle to waist deep cold spring water rushing past you. The footing can be a bit rough at times but it’s a very slow climb. Go early or late to avoid the crowds. Must see if you are in Jamaica!

this is the best waterfall and the only waterfall is able to climb up for people。we hold each other’s hands during the climbing。the tourguider didn ’t give us chance to take pictures on own,I guess because they expect you to buy the vedio DVD at the end,40USD

Tout simplement MERVEILLEUX le seul inconvénient (que je n’ai pas subi) vous devez arriver très tôt, dès l’ouverture par vos propres moyens si vous voulez profité des chutes pratiquement seule. Quand nous sommes parti c’était fou le monde en ligne d’attente qui arrivaient en bus des hôtels et encore pir les journées de croisière. Moi j’ai personne d’autre que nous sur TOUT nos photos. Versus les touristes en activité organisée comme c’est horriblement surchargé de monde. Un incontournable à faire dès l’ouverture!!!

Best Falls I've ever climbed. You fall down a lot, but just get up and keep going. That's part of the adventure. Lots of fun. I went in July of 2011.

Great tourist trail. Not for someone looking for a serious trail to hike. Climb 900 feet up the side of a waterfall.

My wife and I completed this short river hike on our honeymoon and had an amazing time. The hike is very fun and extremely unique. I forget how much it cost to get into the park but it was well worth it for the fun we had.
