It was so cool, dunn river falls was cool, tourist trap, but the blue hole was amazing, jumped off cliffs, over waterfalls, went in river caves, off rope swings. So very cool. Guides were great, very safe, made sure you had fun!

This was the best adventure we had in Jamacia. The scenery is breath taking,the guides are not only helpful but they can do some cool things when showing off how to properly jump off a waterfall and our safety was a priority! Best excursion ever hands down...

We stopped here while in Ochi for a day on a cruise stop. Just my son and husband jumped in as I knew we were only going to be there for a short while and didn't want to spend the $10 per person for one or two jumps. It is very pretty and hubby said the water was very refreshing.

Echoing what others have said, this out of the way and largely undiscovered gem located in the hills above Ocho Rios is one of the best experiences of our recent trip to Ocho Rios. A word of caution, however. This is not an event for the faint of heart as the trails and "walkways" leading to and from the falls and water pools are in a primitive condition -- basically hand and foot holds trenched out of the hillside. In other words, don't expect a "developed" attraction as you will find, for instance, at Dunn River Falls. The guides do a great job of assisting you to traverse the attraction and keeping you away from hazardous areas.

We went here as part of a day trip to Ocho Rios from Montego Bay. Our private driver, Lindsay McFarlane (look him up on Facebook-SNL tours, he is the BEST!) took us here. We started at the bottom with our tour guide Kevin and climbed up the falls, jumped into pools, went into little caves and had a great time! Kevin was great helping us over rocks and helped pull me up certain areas where my short legs could not reach on their own. I was a little hesitant walking over the slippery rocks in some areas but Kevin always gave me a hand. He also took a lot of great pictures with our waterproof camera. You have to be able to swim to do this excursion and it was hard to swim against the current in one place but we inched our way up to the falls along the side using the rocks to help us and then Kevin pulled me up and under the falls. You don't have to be super athletic but you do need leg strength. Some areas were a little scary- climbing up steep rocks and little dirt paths! There were hardly any other people there. It gives you a feel for the true, natural beauty of Jamaica. The water was very clear and that helped when you were walking over rocks although prepare to scrape you knees and legs no matter how careful you are! Wear sunscreen and water shoes are a must! We gave ten per person and a five dollar tip.We probably should have given him an even bigger tip but we had underestimated the amount of cash we needed that day.
