River
“Jamaica's famous falls! If you are less agile, take the adjacent stairs to admire the natural beauty or rest at luscious beach at the bottom. Climbers require water shoes for safety and waterproof phone/camera pockets if you wish to capture the moments. Water park section available at the top of the falls for children. TIP! You can purchase locker storage for your belongings but you MUST retain your receipt for a refund! TIP! You are allowed to bring food on the premises to eat at the beach area.”

“Ride the Sky Explorer up and over the Tropical Rainforest and admire the beautiful views of Ocho Rios. At the top, the thrill seekers can zip-line or test the Bobsleigh. For the less adventurous, take a swim, walk through the nature garden and settle down for some lunch. There really is something for everyone. TIP! Avoid visiting during days when the ship is docked in Ochi for a less crowded experience. TIP! A raincoat may be necessary in case you get caught in an unexpected shower!”

River
“ It's less touristy than other famous waterfalls, has a lot of things to do: - climb waterfall, - jump off waterfalls and various cliffs, - swimming in the river, - have waterfall massage - hike through the rainforest. Cost: 10 USD per person and you have a free guide. It's good to give tips to a guide after the visit. ATTENTION: don't hire guides in T-shirts "Tour Guide". They will be waiting for you before you reach the waterfall and they are scammers (!). Pay entrance fee and get a free guide instead!”

“ Chukka Cove is where it all began in 1982. With 40 acres of scenic coastline, pristine waters and an excellent central location, Chukka Cove is the ideal spot for guests who want an authentic Jamaican experience without venturing too far off the beaten path. Feed your inner thrill seeker on an ATV adventure over rugged terrain, a quick dip in the warm Caribbean Sea atop a trusty steed for the signature Horseback Ride ‘N’ Swim, or cliff jump into the beautiful turquoise waters at the Cove. Chukka Cove is located in Llandovery, St. Ann, approximately 15 minutes north of Ocho Rios.”
