I always tell people that all you need to live in Jamaica and enjoy yourself is money! The sad thing is everbody don’t have that.

Dunns River Fall
Another of the top attractions in Jamaica!

The last time I went there, I had a “ball!”

I got to be honest with you, this is one of those places that you never get tired of.

As hot as Jamaica is, this water always stay cool…truly amazing!

If you go there and don’t enjoy yourself, something is wrong with you.

…and when you want to shift gears, the beach is right there at the bottom of the fall.

I mean, there is so many things you can do…

you can walk up the fall, laze around in the water, find a spot and get a water massage…and more…you can do anything that will “tickle your fancy.”

Just be careful, if you decide to walk up.

Make sure you pick your steps…the rocks may be a little slippery.

…and take advantage of your friends and family. Form a “human chain” or something.

…and yes there are expert guides to help walk up. Don’t take them lightly, they know every corner of the fall.

When you get tired of the fresh water, the ocean is right there, jump on in.

If you get hungry? Drinks, food, and entertainment is right there.

let me say this before I go, if you go to Jamaica and don’t visit dunns river falls, you miss something special more

Martha Brae River
This is one of the most romantic attractions in Jamaica!

If you are trying to win someone over, or just want to be alone with your partner, lover, or friend, this is the spot for you!

It is the perfect atmosphere for you to cuddle, laugh, chat, and do whatever else that makes you both happy…while enjoying the lush green tropical landscape, and the hot sunshine….

Here-in lies the story one of the most evil plantation owners in the history of Jamaica.

Legend has it that the white witch of Rose Hall, as she is affectionately called, killed her three husbands, and her many slave lovers…and now roam the grounds of her former plantation home.

Whether or not you are with a tour guide and others, you may still find yourself wanting to grab on to someone for comfort!

I dare you to enter her bedroom, look in her mirror, take a picture of yourself, and print it…you may just see her in the background…don’t be shocked, you are not the first one it happened to…how creepy! read the story
