Découvrez les chutes du fleuve Dunn et les grottes de Green Grotto, deux des attractions naturelles les plus populaires du nord de la Jamaïque, au cours de cette excursion combinée. Lors de cette excursion de 5 heures et demie au départ d'Ocho Rios, visitez en premier les grottes de Green Grotto pour voir un lac souterrain et d'impressionnantes formations rocheuses calcaires naturelles. Rendez-vous aux chutes du fleuve Dunn pour escalader, jouer et nager, ou simplement vous détendre sur la terrasse. Profitez du transport aller-retour au départ de votre hôtel à Ocho Rios.
Grottes de Green Grotto : Après le transfert depuis votre hôtel à Ocho Rios, voyagez le long de la côte jamaïcaine jusqu'aux grottes de Green Grotto.
À votre arrivée, observez les algues vertes qui couvrent les parois et qui donnent à la grotte son nom. Passez devant de nombreuses formations rocheuses calcaires différentes, y compris un nombre impressionnant de stalagmites et de stalactites. Découvrez, au plus profond de la grotte, un lac souterrain aux eaux pures et cristallines.
Durant votre heure d'arrêt ici, vous en apprendrez plus sur l'intéressante histoire des grottes et leur utilisation en tant que route d'évasion pour le peuple jamaïcain au cours du XVIIe siècle. Repérez les formes de vie endémique des grottes comme les chauves-souris et les balanes, et posez toutes les questions que vous souhaitez à votre guide avant de remonter dans votre véhicule et de vous diriger vers les chutes du fleuve Dunn.
Chutes du fleuve Dunn : À l'issue d'un trajet de 25 minutes repassant par Ocho Rios, vous atteindrez les chutes du fleuve Dunn, l'une des merveilles naturelles les plus célèbres de Jamaïque. Les chutes ont également servi de décor aux deux films James Bond contre Dr. No et Cocktail, avec Tom Cruise.
Détendez-vous sur la terrasse adjacente aux chutes, baignez-vous dans le lagon en contrebas, ou rendez-vous sur la plage de sable voisine. Si vous avez envie d'aventure, suivez votre guide dans l'ascension jusqu'au sommet des chutes à 600 pieds (180 mètres). Enfilez des chaussures aquatiques antidérapantes (disponibles à la location au centre des visiteurs) et gravissez les pierres formant naturellement des « marches » jusqu'en haut des cascades en terrasse. Sur le chemin, arrêtez-vous dans l'un des nombreux bassins pour vous détendre et vous rafraîchir. Montez jusqu'au sommet pour profiter d'une vue panoramique sur la forêt équatoriale environnante.
Après avoir passé environ une heure aux chutes du fleuve Dunn, vous serez transféré à votre hôtel à Ocho Rios.

Great experience, unfortunately our guide was rushing us. Need to be really careful as I hurt myself a couple of times because of the rushed experience.
The transporting company was very nice and prompt. Would not recommend the Green Grotto Caves. Nice and clean but would recommend time spent on another activity. Dunn's River Falls was amazing. More physical than I thought, but definitely a must when visiting the Island.
This trip was amazing! I would highly recommend it to anyone! Our driver Johnson was awesome! He is a local and knew a lot about the area and therefore made the trip very informative. Dunn's falls was amazing! Climbing the falls was one of the coolest things I have ever done and the guides there were great - Quinn and Adrian!!! They were full of energy and made the climb a lot of fun. The Green Grotto caves was also interesting. I don't know if i would have done it unless it was part of this package- but it was cool.
Great tour and the tour company was accommodating, friendly and informative. The caves were cool and climbing Dunn’s River was incredible. I wish the tour guides at Dunn’s River would do smaller tours vs such a large group of about 30 but overall, great tour!
The Dunns river falls is an amazing experience, where you climb the falls about 960 feet through torrid rapid flowing currents, a must for the whole family. The green Grottos also had some historical significance more than its natural beauty as we have seen much bigger and better grottos in the world ! Although the guide Kenny was very informative and very friendly and jocular teaching us the jamaican dialect Patwa along the tour.
A good day, the Falls climb was harder than I thought it would be , but the guides are great and we really enjoyed it. We could have stayed at the falls a bit longer. It seemed a bit rushed to get back.
The caves were ok, they were dry as opposed to others that have been dripping water. The guide made the visit worthwhile.
The climb up the falls was good, the guides are excellent. However the DVD was a complete waste of money.
What an adventure! We had to wait about an hour for our driver to pick us up and that's why I didn't give it a full 5. Plus he had to pick up 2 other guest to take them to the airport. But we were dropped off first and they were very friendly. The grotto is gorgeous. If you like to hike...this is for you. The tour guides were very funny and informative. A different driver came to pick us up and take us to Dunn's Falls. Mr. Pine was very friendly, kind, and wonderful to talk to. My husband asked all kinds of questions and he answered them all. The Falls are gorgeous and amazing to climb! We enjoyed having our driver, instead of being packed in a bus with other tourists!!
The caves: A great option if you are looking to do something a little more off the beaten path. We arrived a bit past 9:00 and were the only group in the caves. Our guide, Chedd, was both funny and extremely informative. We learned a lot of interesting facts and history from him as we walked throughout the caves. The walk was very doable there was only one part where we had to descent about 60 steps and then walk back up. Be prepared to see bats and maybe some cave kitties but other than that, we did not encounter any cave creatures. The lagoon was definitely the highlight - I have never seen water that clear before! The whole walk took about an hour, although it went by fairly quick. The cave was beautiful!
Now onto the falls: I feel like you can't go to Jamaica and not see Dunn's river falls. It truly is spectacular! Make sure to bring water shoes and a waterproof camera case for the climb - that's really all you will need. The climb is exciting and beautiful and fun all wrapped up into one. Our guides were excellent at helping us navigate. Although they try to sell you a video, they even volunteered to take photos of guests with their own cameras, which was great because I definitely wanted pictures but did not want to buy the video of our 15-person group. I truly had a great time. However, there were some downsides to the whole experience. First, it is incredibly crowded. We spent at least a half hour just standing around and waiting before being able to climb. Try to find a date where there isn't a cruise ship in town. Also, I did not like that they made you hold hands although I made a deal with the couple behind me and we decided to not hold hands after all. I like having both my arms available for balance and for grabbing onto things, and the hand-holding seemed a bit unnecessary. Finally, the shops you have to pass on the way out of the park are insane in terms of the pressure they put on you to buy things. I've been to Mexico, the Bahamas, downtown Ocho Rios, etc. and so I've experienced this type of shopping before and have no issues saying no to people, but they took pushiness to another level. My husband innocently made the mistake of telling one of them our names and he carved them into little wooden figurines that we then were pressured into buying. Not a good way to end the whole experience.
We had to wait for our tour bus a long time after finishing up at Dunn's. When we got on, it was overcrowded with guests from another excursion. A minor annoyance, but felt as thought it was important to mention. This was the only time on an excursion we had issues with the travel.
