Blue Hole is THE place to go! My whole family had an incredible time. I have a son, 10, with sensory issues and Romaine (like the lettuce) treated him in an amazing way and he had an absolute blast! All of the guides seem very friendly and all know how to navigate the falls like cats! My teen boy and... More

Amazing place to spend the day. Go early and go when the cruise ships are not in town to avoid the crowds.

we were told about this place by a couple on the tram on the way to the airport - it seems it is a bit of a secret even to the some of the people that work at the resort as we got some puzzled looks when we asked -however it is not too far from Dunn's River - it... More

This was a wonderful trip with my family, in my opinion, this is the best trip on the island! If you go on one trip, it has to be this! The water is so clean and fresh, we could drink it! We were able to walk down a waterfalls, swing on ropes, tunnel inside of the waterfall, jump of ledges... More

We organised the trip to the Blue Hole ourselves from an Ocho Rios hotel. We weren't quite sure what to expect. The journey there is an experience in itself and you get to see a small slice of the real Jamaica. Don't expect a smooth ride! When we were allocated our "tour guides", we kind of assumed that this was... More

We visited the Blue Hole on our recent trip to Jamaica. What an amazing spot. It's a bit of a trek to get there from the main street (long, steep dirt road), but well worth the trek. When you get to the hole, you get to see a totally different side of Jamaica. Have a jump in the Hole or... More

In my opinion, the Blue Hole is a far better attraction compared to Dunns River Falls (at least before it is overrun by tourists in the near future). When we went there, there was barely anyone, maybe another 2-3 small groups. We were told that this attraction was over developed about 2 years ago, so it has not gain as... More

We booked our Blue Hole, and lunch adventure with Liberty Tours......the best by the way!!!!!! They drive you to the top instead of having you walk through the woods. The drive up is a one lane road but our driver was very safe and we appreciated not having to do that walk! Once there you can immediately see the breath-taking... More
