Dunn’s River Falls is also one of the only waterfalls on earth that empties straight into the ocean. After you arrive, you will listen to a brief introduction from your guide, before then enjoying 2 hours of free time to experience the falls however you wish. You can put on non-slip water shoes (available for rental if you don’t bring your own) to climb up the 600-foot (180-meter) terraced falls, carefully walking up the "steps" formed by the naturally chiseled rocks. You can also stop along the way to swim in one of the small pools that have formed on the different levels, and as you reach the top, you will be rewarded with a great view. If you’d rather relax, you can hang out on the deck located near the river to admire the falls, or go swimming in the natural lagoon at the bottom. When your time at the falls is up, you can head to a nearby restaurant for a 1-hour lunch break. Once there, you will be free to refuel with a traditional Jamaican jerk meal and can also relax over a beer or rum cocktail if you wish.
