Default Dunns River Falls

Can anybody tell me how far the falls are from the pier at Ocho Rios. We would like to tour the falls with the kids on our own. Any Idea what a cab would cost?

Hi! Went to Montego Bay and got a taxi to take us ANYWHERE in Jamaica for the whole day for 8 people - $100...........this is a good price, but never take the first offer! We got the price lowered from over 200!!!! Dunn River Falls is GREAT! We went on our own and don't let them tell you that you can't do this. They try to give you a guide, but just go on in without one! It is MUCH better that way! Try Jerk Chicken at a Jerk Chicken Hut,.........it is a good experience. You will have a great time!

Brittany

Anymore questions? Just ask!

Don't know the exact distance, but it's about thirty minutes from Ocho Rios by Motor Coach. There are numerous taxi's around the pier, but make sure you have transportation back. Some folks from our cruise worked a deal. They offered the driver a little more money, but paid him AFTER he picked them up and dropped them at the docks.
Whether you go with a group or on your own doesn't make any difference...just go. It's an experience you'll never forget. Just make sure you have "old" shoes with non-skid soles...the rocks are really slippery. Oh one other thing....the water is COLD..there is no other way to describe it.

The Falls are literally up the hill from where the cruise ship docks. Be sure to bring water shoes and money for a locker so you can protect your stuff.

There will be tons of cabs waiting by the peir. Just set a price before you get in the cab!

We walked across the street to the left of the pier about a block or two to the 2 story shopping center and caught a taxi from there. It was an air-condition van driven by "Slow Eddie," he charged us $20.00 to take us to the Falls, and waited about 1 1/2 hours for our return. This was about 11-12 days ago. the Falls are about 10 minutes from the shopping center.

"Sea" you,
