I was just at Dunns River and it's excellent and gorgeous! The walk up the falls is not safe in my opinion for kids, but walking on land would be a great experience for them. It's by far the most gorgeous falls I've ever seen and was well worth the trip. The vendors at the top - SKIP THEM! High hassle! Everyone wants a tip in Jamaica so be careful. They'll offer to take your photo and then want money for it. The list goes on and on. If you can push through this....it's worth the trip. Hope this helps.
