Pass By: Runaway bay, Jamaica

This tour takes you through one of the most popular towns on the Island. Runaway bay is naturally beautiful and is certainly one of the most scenic areas in Jamaica. It sits between the beautiful, crisp coastline to one side and the lush green mountains to the other. There is much debate as to how the town of Runaway bay got its name. some people believe it got the name because that is where the last batch of Spanish soldiers ran away from when they were retreating from the attacking British Troops lead by Governor Ysassi right after the 1655 British invasion of Jamaica, while other argue that it was the point from which the Slaves from inland plantations used as an escape route to runaway to Cuba. Get your cameras ready to go as you make your way through this area.

Stop At: Dunn's River Falls and Park, Ocho Rios, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica

Your tour guide will take you directly to the extremely beautiful, world famous Dunns River Falls & Park. By now, you should be wearing your swimsuits so all you have to do is to get checked-in, meet with your resident guide, go through the briefing, sign the waiver form and get on with the fun at hand. There are professional photographers stationed at Dunns River that will accompany you on the trip you can purchase your pictures at the end if you like but, feel free to take your waterproof cameras with you and your Falls Guide will assist you by taking pictures.

Traveler Reviews

    This excursion was much more fun than I thought it would be, and I'd definitely recommend it. I was a little hesitant about purchasing the DVD but glad I did because the videographer captured some really good pics and video. The only reason I did not give this a 5 is because of the way the "merchants" hound/harrass you on your way to exit. You have to walk through the marketplace to leave and the vendors are all over you. This was the same way when we arrived in Ocho Rios for the shopping. I probably would have browsed a little longer and bought more items had I not felt so harrassed. I did complain to our tour bus driver about the vendors and he said something to them, so they did back off a bit.

    Great trip, our driver Marlon was exceptional!

    The Dunns River tour was awesome although a TON of Jamaicans were trying to sell souvenirs at the end. The shopping part was disappointing. All places had the same things and high prices. I would have rather went to a mall. I could have done without the shopping.

    Definitely worth it! The river falls were so much fun and we had a guide once we arrived at the falls that led us in a group. The driver from the tour company provided some insightful tips on what to expect at the falls and it was very helpful! Shopping wasn't a huge part of the trip and I would actually say that it's not necessary, you only visit some small souvenir shops. Lunch at Scotchie's was wonderful! Really great food and great prices. Overall an awesome trip, my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it!

    It was a great experience and amazing. The Falls is so beautiful I made it to the top with the terrific guide Norman very sweet man. He held my hand to the very top. What a exhilarating adventure. It was my first time going there and it won't be the last. I am planning to go back next year. The Jamaican people was very friendly and the tour guides also.
