Hi Luanne,

Your "virtual cruise" has been wonderful!

The only thing I have to disagree with is the shopping at the top of the Falls.

At the top of the falls is a little shopping area. Those trying to sale their stuff will meet you as soon as you come out of the falls area. You are on your way back to the bus, and you can go two ways. One goes down to the shops, and the other is I believe to the left, that will take you sooner. For those you meet out of the falls, do not talk to them, except to say No Thank you. Do not listen to them, no matter what they offer. They will offer you jewelry, drugs, carvings, etc. You do not want any of it.
It very well may have been different when you cruised, but we found the vendors there to be friendly and NOT overly aggressive (most vendors in Jamaica are very aggressive). I collect owls, and found a couple of "homemade" owls there for very reasonable prices. If you want to walk through, but don't want to buy anything, just say "no thank you" and keep walking!
