For those that have gone to Ocho Rios and done the included Dunns River Falls tour - did you think it was worth it, or just so-so? My husband is pretty anti-excursions and likes to just stay on the resort and relax. I have similar feelings, although not as strong as him! We live in a big city, so anything really touristy or where people are pushing you to buy things really isn't our thing because we go on vacation to escape from all that. Did you feel like the Falls were a must-see/must-do and can't be missed? We are leaning towards not doing it, but I want to know if we'll really be missing out. How far was the trip to get there, and how long is the whole excursion?
Hey! My hubby & I just returned from CSS 2 days ago, and did Dunn's...I did not like it. We asked in advance if there was a cruise ship docked and told "no" but in fact there was, so there were HUNDREDS of people. I am very small, 5'0 and 100 lbs and was freaked out by the force of the water coming down from all the rocks. Granted, there were kids doing it, but kids are fearless...lol..Given that, our guide, Norman was Wonderful! Once he realized I wanted to stop and exit, he held my hand the entire way. We did a "dry walk" the rest of the way and even bought the video, because our video photographer, "Calvin" was awesome to include us even though we exited. I would definitley say go see it, just be knowledgable in advance about the possible surroundings.
