Quote: Jamaica was an amazing experience, and all I can think about is going back to this beautiful paradise. Set just south of Cuba, this tropical island stole my heart. I flew into MoBay, and took the bus ride into Ocho Rios, where I was married at a wonderful all-inclusive resort.

The best thing that I did in Ocho Rios was Dunn's River Fall's. Since I was married on this vacation, I did not do a lot outside of the resort. I highly recommend Beaches Boscobel Resort if you are looking for an all-inclusive!Quick Tips: I was able to rent all the SCUBA gear necessary at the resort, along with very basic sailboats and kayaks, for no additional charge. That is the beauty of an all-inclusive in a tropical paradise. Local events were broadcast by mega-phone from the ocean (someone got on a small motor boat a few times a day to do this).Best Way To Get Around: Taxi's are really the best option when travelling around Ocho Rios. Make sure to bring plenty of dollars to tip...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Dunn's River Fall's is a 5- to 10-minute taxi ride away!Best Things About the Resort:Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

The beach was a bit small, b...Read More

So, everyone says you have to do it once, and I would agree. Climbing the 600 foot falls is quite an experience, and somewhat tricky. I had the tour arranged through our resort, Beaches Boscobel in Ocho Rios. It was $34 per person, which included your transportation to and from the falls. I went with two other travel companions, and we had one guide. Most of the groups climbing the falls were larger groups with multiple guides. They would climb up the falls in a single-file line, all holding hands. Unlike most of the other groups our guide just went for it! We went up the opposite side of falls from the other groups. This side was more difficult, but it was nice to be away from the crowds....Read More
