Wild Jamaica

Dunn’s Fall is a great, family friendly attraction for those who enjoy fun in the outdoors.

After about 2 hours of climbing, slipping, falling, swimming, and posing for pictures, our group made it to the top of the waterfall. I felt that I had exerted myself, but hadn’t exhausted myself, and the others agreed. More than anything, I felt like I had achieved something and that was a treat. There wasn’t much time to celebrate however because we were due to swim with dolphins and couldn’t be late. With much of the same order and efficiency that we were shuffled into the waterfall, we were escorted out.

Once in the bus, we drove slightly up the road to Dolphin Cove, one of three locations spread across the country. Our bus guide still was still wisecracking along the way, but I could tell that she was tired from the cold she seemed to be battling. Upon arrival, our group spilled out into the complex and were led to the attraction. Like Dunn’s River Falls, Dolphin Cove featured lush overgrowth and beautifully aged buildings and structures that helped to sell the “jungle paradise” vibe the promoters are going for. We were quickly oriented about “do’s” and “don’ts” with and around the dolphins and the complex in general. For instance, you couldn’t simply enter the water or touch the dolphins unsupervised–not that anyone sensible would want to–or wear jewelry, or take pictures (a particular disappointment).
