    Dunns River Falls, without a doubt. Everyone has to do this once.

    River tubing is also nice.

    Margaritaville in downtown Ocho Rios.

    That's 3 suggestions but definitely do Dunns River.

    We enjoyed visiting Nine Mile--Bob Marley's birthplace and where he is laid to rest. We also enjoy making a "jerk" pilgrimage to Scotchie's for awesome jerk!

    we have never been but we are there at the same time and we have been trying to figure out the same thing! We are definitely doing the flaoting down the river in tubes as it looks like a blast! we are also keeping in mind that we might just want to do nothing...only a few more sleeps and we are off to the airport! CANT WAIT!!

    River tubing was AWESOME We did that in December while there on a cruise. Also, you can do a zip line through the area that looked like fun. Margaritaville has a pool w/ water slide which adds to the fun.

    The Dunns River Falls that is included is a must . They do a video while you're climbing it cost $40.00 US but we said better then junky stuff from gift shops . The Zipline through Chukka is also good , we reserved & paid for it online through them before we arrived . You can not take your camera while ziplining but they take pics for you . The cost for that was 10 pics for $30.00 . So you can make sure you have enough cash on you . At both places you leave your personal items on the bus , no problem the driver stays with them .

    We tried the Luminous Lagoon last year. From their web site:
    At night, the lagoon sparkles and glistens when disturbed, as these microscopic organisms produce an eerie glow. You get to jump out and swim and your body surrounded by the luminous green glow. The Luminous Lagoon is said to be the largest and most brilliant of four in the world.

    We were able to sign up at CSS and they arranged for a driver to take us there. We left around 5:00 and got to Falmouth in about an hour. We got back to CSS around 9:00.

    The floating is down the White river. We are planning on looking into it when we get to CSS.
    The Luminous Lagoon that John_nh mentioned looks REALLY cool and we might want to try that as well!

    Hi, I bet the tubing references are for the White River which is very close to CSS. Have a great time! Counting the days until we are home in July!!!

    The Luminous Lagoon is something we were very glad we did it. It cost around $70 each. When you jump into the water, the bottom is muddy & soft, so wear water shoes. It was only about 4 to 5 ft. deep. When you move in the water, the water would glow. When I got completely under water and came up, all the water drops looked like glowing diamonds running off.
