We made the mistake in Ocho Rios, of trying to just explore on our own.
BIG mistake.... Like somebody already said, the locals were beyond ridiculous......

We did talk to a bunch of folks that evening and the people who took the Mystic Mountain/Bobsled tour had the best time....
I know the people who did that tour WITHOUT Dunn's River Falls, did say they rode the Bobsled multiple times.

I think the people who did it, with Dunn's River Falls said they were rushed from one ride, to the next to the falls. So I don't think they had time for multiple rides or pool time at the top of the chair lift.

Hope that helps...
IF we ever go back to Ocho Rios-(which I doubt) we will definitely do Mystic Mountain and the Bobsled ride.

You made me wonder, so I found the bobsled picture. They also so zip line and air tram. However, I'm not sure it's me. I'm kind of afraid of heights. I wonder is the people are beyond Enseneda pushy. In Enseneda you dock in port, but there is a bridge you have to cross. I call that the tourist gauntlet, there are parents and childern attempting to sell you stuff and if money comes out they will follow you down the street.

Absolutely book a tour through Carnival for the Dunn's River Falls tour.It is a lot of fun.The locals in Ocho Rios are always in your face for you to buy something.Stay in a group and DO NOT GO ANYPLACE BY YOURSELVES!!! As for Grand Cayman,go to the end of the pier and ask for Alton Woods.He is a great taxi driver and will take good care of you. He is HONEST and will not take advantage of you.He will also agree to pick you up after the beach whenever you want and you can ask him for suggestions on where to go for shopping.He is very knowledgeable.Mr. woods has always been my man in Grand Cayman!Have fun,relax.YOU'RE ON VACATION!!!!

Default What's the big deal

We did our own thing at Ocho Rios and didn't have any problems. We got a taxi to our destination and the same driver picked us up. We told him we wanted to do some shopping and he took us to an out of the way place where we got some great deals.

The folks we dealt with were real nice and would do my own thing again in a heartbeat.

BTW....We went to a Couples resort while there and had a wonderful time on a beach with no children, only couples. It is all-inclusive and the drinks and food were wonderful all for $50 each for a day pass and $20 each for cab fare round trip.
