My family and I are cruising in July and our port is in Montego Bay, but I've been told that Dunn River Falls is amazing. I really don't want to do it as an excursion through the cruise line because of the price for my family of 6. So I'm wondering if anyone know what the cost would be for a taxi from Montego Bay to the falls.
Dunn's River Falls and Shopping Tours From Montego Bay Pier is $85.00
Dunn's River Falls is Jamaica's number one visited tour attraction on the island and is about one and a half hours drive from montego bay. This attraction is located in the parish of Saint Ann, Ocho Rios and this primier tour offers a 600 ft falls for climbing while its natural water massages your body and relax your mind, this makes Dunn's River Falls & Park the perfect environment for fun and relaxation.
So I'm guessing 40mi. on Jamaican highways would be a "stretch" at best to say 45 minutes?? More like the 1 1/2hr. other posters have indicated?
The highway between Montego Bay - past Falmouth and to Ocho Rios is a fast, highway. Not the tiny, curvy scary roads it used to be. It took us only 2.5 hrs to go from Negril to Ocho Rios. I think it's only 40-50 minutes from Falmouth to Dunns River. The highways along the north coast of Jamaica are VASTLY improved over years past.
