You can be as active as you like or just chill under the bamboo stands and...

    Ocho Rios Things to Do

    It's the top attraction of Ocho Rios, and maybe of Jamaica. Advertised as among the most famous falls in the world, we must be aware that it comes from the fun of climbing it, and not for its spectacularity. There is no comparison for instance with Niagara or Iguaçu falls, but along its 180 meters there's always people laughing. The water is...

    This was the choice for our "mandatory" experience in a bamboo raft down a river. There are many other alternatives locally announced in the hotels, and they may be better than this - we had a calm descent for about 45 minutes, in what turned almost in a "botanical parade". Nice, calm, relaxing, but without the touch of emotion providing by a...

A couple of new malls clearly directed to tourists, with prices for American, nor even Fernanda could convince. The crafts market was a little more authentic, and justified...

    Kingston Warnings and Dangers

    First off I had a great time in Kingston. That being said, it is definitely for the adventurous traveler only. It can be very tense at times especially in the downtown vicinity but this applies to pretty much 90% of the city. Uptown is a little more forgiving but not by much. If you do not feel or look confident of yourself I would not recommend...

  • Avoid "Rush Hour"

    Kingston Transportation

    It seemed to be quite congested leaving Kingston around 6:00 PM. Took us twice as long to get back to Ocho Rios then it had for us to get there earlier in the day. Also, lots of "windshield cleaners" approached and cleaned our vehicle without asking first, throughout our day in Kingston.

Also the water is rushing at you at a decent rate but there are steps/ladder type under the water and it can be climbed. NOT...

    Portmore Warnings and Dangers

    Unfortunately, this is a local beach in my neighborhood, and is not located in a tourist area. Unless you are going with a local that lives there, and is familiar with the area, I would not venture out to find this place. The good news is, it is just a taste of what Jamaica has to offer.

    Good Sun Block or Prepare To Burn

    by Xamayka Updated Mar 7, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: This is a rural area, so "dressy" clothes aren't necessary. Lightweight, loose-fitting, and comfortable are the keys to being at ease. Ladies might want to bring a skirt if a trip to Sav-la-Mar or church service is on your schedule. Flip-flops or sandals are sufficient for most occasions; a pair of water-shoes and walking/running shoes for "off road" adventures. Once you adapt, evening breezes can feel cool, a light windbreaker, long sleeve shirt, or wrap takes the "chill" off. Fitted clothing is OK ... tight or revealing clothes are not.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunblock. Sunblock. Sunblock. SPF 35. Even if you have darker skin, unless you live in a similar climate, YOU WILL BURN. Insect repellent is recommended. The area is generally dry, but after a rain the mosquitoes will be looking for you.
