Ocho Rios

Dunns River Falls
One of Jamaica's most famous attractions. From the beach you can climb the falls some 600 feet up. Even if you do not climb the falls, it is a must see for the sheer beauty.

Ruins Restaurant
When you get to Ocho Rios you probably will want to stop for lunch. The Ruins is located on one of the many waterfalls in the area and it also has a tropical garden above the falls.

Green Grotto
On your return trip to Montego Bay you will want to stop at the Green Grotto and tour the caves. These caves have been used since the days of pirates and was host to a James Bond movie.

Just west of Montego Bay is a little town in the mountains called Anchovi. Here at the feeding station every afternoon at 2 the birds come to feed. You will see Banana Quits, Hummingbirds and the bird of Jamaica, the Doctor Bird. If you are lucky a hummingbird might land on your finger and feed from a bottle of sugar water.

South Coast

Appleton Estate

In St. Elizabeth you can see how Appleton Rum is made at the Factory in the Nassau Valley. Learn how the world famous Appleton Rum is produced. See the 200 year old "Pot Stills" still used today. You will be able to sample and press your own fresh sugar cane juice. The visit would not be complete without a sampling of Appleton's Rums.

Y.S. Falls
Located in the parish of Saint Elisabeth near the town of Black River and not far from the Nassau Mountains. Crystal clear sparkling water gently cascading down 120 feet form cool swimming holes and coves for the totally exhilarating 'Garden of Eden' Style swim. To reach the falls you take a tractor drawn jitney through fields of giant Guango Trees, Cotton Trees, flowering Quickstick and Cedar with mountains as the backdrop to a cool, shady corner of the valley where the Y.S. River cascades down.

West End

Negril is 70 miles to the west of Montego Bay. Known for its laid back atmosphere and 5 mile long beach. On the westernmost end of the island stands a Lighthouse built in 1894.
