Don't get off the ship and look around.
That was our mistake there.
Definitely look into an excursion there and get away from the city.
Like I said, everyone who went was raving about any of the 3 Mystic Mountain tours offered. (I think it just opened less than a year ago, so it is still pretty new)
Pretty much every other excursion at some point will take you to Dunn's River Falls. (but after counting 20+ excursions on the TV going there, on the first page alone, I quit and we decided to definitely not go there.)
And from the people we spoke to that night, we made the correct choice.
