Need answers fast (leaving tomorrow at midnight for Miami to board our cruise) I was wondering how past cruisers who have made it to margaritaville in Ocho Rios got there?? We're taking the 5 day out of Miami and wanted to do Dunn's River falls and margaritaville while we're there, but past posts have stated it's unsafe to go anywhere there unless you're with a "carnival" excursion- is this true or is it possible for us to do both while we're in port (7AM- 3:30) THANKS!!
You're going to have a real problem doing both with that time schedule. Dunn's River Falls will take up most of your time, and you'll need to be back on your ship no later than 3:00 p.m. - and I'd be back sooner than that. Did you book your Dunn's River excursion through the ship? If not, what time does your excursion leave?
well, haven't booked any excursions yet, that's why I wanted to know if we just did the falls on our own if we'd have time to go to margaritaville- not planning on doing any excursions in grand cayman (just the beach) so I want to at least do the falls in jamaica, but also don't want to miss out on margaritaville!! What to do???
Just got back from West Carib.. We did excursion with Peat Taylor. Did the Falls, took a tour thru the country then he dropped us off at Magaritaville & had a few hours their before walking back to ship.
Yes you can do excursions o0n your own to the Falls and do it without a guide. Be aware of the aggressive vendors at the top of the falls wanting to sell you things. You can walk down the street right at the pier to Margaritaville with no problem. Treat pople with respect and kindness and you will have no problems there.
