In Ocho Rios
An island nation, Jamaica offers a wealth of natural beauty. Ocho Rios,
Jamaica, is home to some of the most well-known of the islandís natural
wonders, including a glistening waterfall that attracts visitors from
all over and the opportunity to swim with dolphins.
Dunnís River Falls offers a hiking experience that allows even the decidedly
non-athletic to enjoy a beautiful view of the 600 foot high waterfalls.
However, while the 900 foot climb to the top may seem like a cake walk
to the experienced hiker, for those not accustomed to activities, caution
should be taken and children should be monitored carefully to avoid
With that being said, however, the experience is one not to be missed.
The views alone are worth the walk. There are areas at the bottom and
along the hiking path for wading and splashing in the cold and very
clear mountain water.
At Dolphin Cove, visitors can enjoy up close and personal interaction
with a family group of bottle nose dolphins. Located near Ocho Rios,
at one of the most beautiful natural coves in Jamaica, the setting is
lush and green, placed in the midst of 4 acres of rain forest.
There are three types of dolphin experience packages available, allowing
visitors to choose the degree of interaction best suited to their comfort
zone and experience. These include the opportunity to swim and interact
with a group of dolphins, another that provides in water interaction
with a single dolphin and another which is called a touch encounter
package, which is best suited for non-swimmers and children. The traveler
should make contact well in advance for individual package rates and
to make reservations, as spots are limited.
Dolphin Cove also features other attractions, including a jungle walk
trail, while not too physically challenging, offers a fascinating look
at local flora and fauna. This is a particularly nice destination for
children as there is ample opportunity to have an up close view of brightly
colored birds and reptiles. Pristine beaches, perfect for those who
enjoy the sun and sand, but not the crowds, and kayaking are also available
to visitors, as well as a waterfall that is sure to be less crowded
than Dunnís River Falls.
At Cranbrook Flower Forest and Riverhead Adventure Trail, which is open
daily from 9am to 5pm, tourists can explore the grounds of this restored
water mill. Its greenhouses and grounds are home to many varieties of
flowers, including numerous types of orchids. Horseback riding is available,
and is the perfect way to enjoy traveling the trails. Admission for
$6 and $3 for children under 12 and horseback riding rates are $30 for
Ocho Rios, Jamaica, is surrounded by surprising natural beauty. Surprising,
in that so many of these natural wonders are found in the midst of the
bustling businesses of the tourist industry. Yet, despite the large
amount of commercialism, the natural beauty still remains, often seemingly
undisturbed by the unceasing flow of visitors. That which has attracted
adventurers and travelers for centuries remains readily apparent and

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
