Destination Highlights

John Crow Mountains National Park
The national park, which is also a World Heritage Site, is home to Blue Mountain Peak, the highest on the island with an altitude of 7,402 feet. In total, the trail to hike to the top and back is 14 miles and takes about seven hours. Starting the trail early in the morning makes for an exciting hike and an incredible view of the sunrise, but hikers can also choose to stay at a lodge or camp out so they can start their hike in the daylight. Both thrilling and scenic, there is no other trail quite like it on the entire island.

Dunn's River Falls and Park
Dunn's River Falls is one of Jamaica's national treasures. A stone's throw from Ocho Rios, one of Jamaica's fastest growing resort centers, Dunn's River Falls is unique. Described as a living and growing phenomenon, it continuously regenerates itself from deposits of travertine rock, the result of precipitation of calcium carbonate from the river, as it flows over the falls. Dunn's River has the distinction of being the only one of its kind in the Caribbean, if not the world.
