Jamaica is a land of unspoiled beauty and breathtaking vistas. It’s a popular destination for those who enjoy the all-inclusive resort to relax, but Jamaica has so much more to offer. There is an entire country of adventure to explore and a good place to start is checking out these stunning, natural wonders.
Island Gully Falls
An oasis in the middle of the mountains, Island Gully Falls features pristine blue waters, a steep cliff for diving and a stunning waterfall. Island Gully is one of Jamaica’s hidden treasures. It’s off the beaten path and in the middle of a tropical forest, but there are many tour companies that will take you there.
If you choose to jump down into the water below, it can be a little intimidating. It’s a big drop, but the pool below is deep and (relatively) safe. The coolest part of this trip is rappelling down a waterfall. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime activity.
Entrance into the park is $15 a person with changing areas and restrooms on the premises.
This gorgeous natural rock formation will get you back in touch with the beauty of nature. It’s a long wall of coves, caves and outcroppings. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can jump into the water below from the top.
Sitting adjacent to the Negril Cliffs are several restaurants and bars. Be sure to grab some food and enjoy the sunset before heading back into the city for the exciting night life.
If you’ve ever dreamed of swimming with the dolphins (and other marine life), Dolphin Cove is a must-see. Sharks, stingrays, local fish and dolphins can be seen and interacted with in their natural Caribbean habitat.
Dolphin Cove also offers mini-boats to explore the coast, snorkeling, glass-bottom kayak rides, shows, land animal exhibits, beaches and so much more.
Prices vary based on the level of interaction visitor’s want with the exhibits. Admission ranges from $49 – $199. It’s an excellent activity for the whole family.
Touted as a “little piece of heaven”, Croydon Plantation offers beautiful scenery and a chance to see the impressive green mountains of Jamaica.
During a tour of this plantation you’ll learn everything there is to know about pineapples complete with an extensive taste test of all the varieties of pineapples. You’ll also learn some history, the customs and traditions of Jamaica.
The tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. They are locals who are well educated on all aspects of plantation life and Jamaican history.
Be prepared for a long drive out, the plantation is located in the middle of the mountains. Lunch is included though, which makes this a great day trip during your stay.
