Thursday was the day for Dunn’s River Falls. An off-site attraction, Dunn’s River Falls is about a 20 minute drive from Tower Island in Ocho Rios. Along the way, our bus stopped and picked up a videographer at a small shack along the side of the road where we rented water shoes. Our videographer was a bit of a potty mouth, but he was entertaining.
We were warned about the locals peddling. Our vacation was all-inclusive, but since this attraction was off-site, we were left to our own devices when dealing with the natives. The first taste of commerce came from a small shack and beer cart in the parking lot.
We entered and walked by a sign with small print. This sign was a stark reminder that we weren’t in the States, as the hazards of the falls would naturally incur a multiple-page waiver back home.
We continued down the trail to the bottom of the falls, where the river met the beach. We posed at the base of the falls for our first pictures, and were essentially forced to get wet by the tour guides, who delivered on their promise of “no wet, no fun.” It was good to get drenched immediately, as there would have been no way to stay dry throughout the rest of the climb.
Our return placed us back to the resort shortly after noon. We spent the rest of the day napping, floating in the sea and drinking in the hot tubs.
Our dinner reservations were again at the Bayside restaurant, where the food was just as amazing as the night before.
