Stopped at Ocho Rios, Jamaica during a cruise last month and had the best time EVER!! We didn't book any tour through the cruise line as it was too expensive. We booked through knowjamaica.com with Marva Shaw. I emailed her at knowjam@yahoo.com and she was very quick to respond. We got to climb Dunn's River Falls( You HAVE to do this!!!), go tubing down the White River and then go to a local beach (Mahogany Beach) to try out the jerk chicken and Red Stripe beer.

Javia took great care of us--we too felt VERY safe with him. Dunn's River Falls is not only beautiful but an absolute blast to climb. We also went tubing down the White River, which was...More
