SGR to Blue Hole or Dunns Falls?!?!

We are looking into going to Dunns Falls or the Blue Hole.. Wondering how long of a taxi ride it would be to both places from SGR and if you know which one would be more enjoyable :) Also wondering about how much $ it would cost for taxi.

Thanks!

Both are relatively close and distance really wouldn't be a factor IMO. The Blue Hole is more natural/peaceful and Dunn's is abit more crowded. Both would be good to see. Prices depend on the number in the car. Note THE LIST in the upper right for driver info.

"Wondering how long of a taxi ride it would be"

From SGR the Blue Hole is about 2 miles one way. Dunn's River Falls is a bit over 4 miles, one way, from the hotel.

Vinnie, help me out here again. I know there are many Blue Holes on Jamaica. We went to the one the driver called the Irie Blue Hole. When you drove up to the start their were a couple of locals that would help guide you through the experience, which was OK for us ($10). You first stopped at the hole with a small falls and a rope swing into the hole. That was nice. Then we were guided through the woods to a river that was headed by a very nice waterfall with the opportunity to be helped half way down the falls and then allowed to jump in!! There was also a rope swing into the water there as well. Is this in fact what is known as the Irie Blue Hole?

@Rand..... yes that is it....

@Rossy..... these are in opposite direction from SGR, to Dunn's River it would be 15 mins to the west. To the Blue Hole it would be 40 mins south east of your hotel.

While Dunn's River is nice to visit, being a landmark in Jamaica...... it does tend to feel quite commercial and crowded. Blue Hole on the other hand happens to be unspoilt Jamaica.......gives you also a chance to see a local community.

Hope that helps..............

Yes.

There are two other places that I know of that some people call the 'Blue Hole'. The second one is in Westmoreland near Negril. It is also known as the Blue Hole Mineral Springs. The third one is near Port Antonio in Portland. It is also known as the Blue Lagoon, aka Blue Hole Lagoon, and aka the Ole Blue Hole.

Consider THE LIST, upper right corner. Send of 3 or 4 e-mails and request a quote. These are drivers used by and recommended by other TA regulars.
