My best friend has got this thing about wanting to climb Dunn's Falls and the Valor doesn't go to oho rios. Should be interesting to watch since between the 2 of use we only have 1 good knee and I'm terrified of heights. BUT, the only way I could get her to agree to swim with the stingrays was to agree to climb the stupid waterfall with her since she is convinced that the stingrays will "sting" her (must get the hang of inserting smileys since I really need a rolling eyes one here).
my dear I have done both swim with the stingrays in gran cayman and climbed the falls you will both enjoy both of them, dont worry about dunns river its not high what so ever its more like climbing a hill its very easy and very nice. you girls have a hoot.
Dunns River Falls is a bit of a challenge, as you are climbing the falls while the water is going down around you, but usually you have a guide who will hold your hand and help you up the falls. If you do not wish to climb the falls, there is a very sturdy stairway along the side of the falls where you can still view the beauty of it and watch others climb and still get some beautiful pictures of the scenery.
So do not pass it up!! My husband & I opted for the stairway and still enjoyed the splendid beauty of the area, as well as the festive catamaran ride to and from! The energetic music they were playing on the way back really made for a party atmosphere! Just watch out for that Rum Punch, it really packs a wallop!

Hmm, rum punch sounds very interesting. Probably should wait till after I crawl up the falls while not looking down and praying to every god in every universe while cursing my best friend for making me do this. See the deal is, I can't take the stairs if I want her to get in the water with the stingrays with me so I have to do this and the worst part is I have a WHOLE YEAR to think about.
My mom, sis,s-i-l, s-i-l's sis & I are doing a "girls night out" cruise this fall. We're doing a 4 day to Key West & Cozumel. This will be my 5th cruise and I am soooo excited. First one with the girls. We're calling it "Cruising with the GALS- Girls Addicted to Life on a Ship." I"ll have to make us some shirts.
We did the swim with the Stingrays on Thanksgiving 2003. I admit I was apprehensive at first but when I saw 5 year old kids in there having fun (I am a 43 year old woman), I thought what the heck! I even held a huge stingray. The tour guides are wonderful in helping you feel comfortable and the stingrays are like pets. You will have a wonderful time and you will NEVER forget it!
