Things to Do in Jamaica

Make Sure You Do These 4 Things in Jamaica

  • Dunn’s River Falls
  • Catamaran Cruises
  • Appleton Rum Estate
  • Rose Hall Great House

Dunn’s River Falls

Starting off our list, we just had to include Dunn’s River Falls, as this famous waterfall receives thousands of visitors each year.

A popular tourist hub. This unique waterfall is close to the sea in Ocho Rios and sees water cascading down the meandering river as locals and tourists climb and bathe in the waters of this natural phenomenon.

The 180-foot climb can be tricky in parts, but thanks to tourism, the popular trail is the easiest and safest to climb by holding hands, daisy-chaining up the waterfall with your fellow hikers. Good job it’s a popular tourist spot, eh!

If that’s not all, Mystic Mountain Adventure Park is a stone’s throw away from Dunn’s River Falls, which provides fascinating views and adrenaline-fulled action in the form of zip lines, bobsled rides and more.

The main bobsled attraction pays homage to the 1988 Olympic bobsled team and sits 700 feet high overlooking the treetops, whereas the zip lines take you through the forest canopy. There are also opportunities to partake in a guided walk through the jungle, meaning there is something for everyone at Mystic Mountain.

Appleton Rum Estate

Renowned as the birthplace of rum, there are plenty of distillery tours in the Caribbean. And our favourite would have to be Appleton Rum Estate in Jamaica. The 60-minute tour shows how the estate gets its signature flavour and provides over 10 different types of rum to sample. If that’s not all, the rustic touches and oak barrels add to the aesthetic as you learn all about how this Jamaican spirit is crafted.

Rose Hall Great House

Last, on our list. We’re heading to Rose Hall Great House. But you must be careful of the white witch (we’ll get into that in a bit more detail in a moment).

A fantastic day out in Jamaica. This historical Georgian plantation explores the roots of slave history as guides share the story of how the colonial ruins were restored to their former glory. Furthermore, the estate showcases panoramic views of the coast, manicured vegetation around the grounds, and the option to book night tours.

But why would I book a night tour to a museum?! Well, that’s where the tale of Annie Palmer comes in.

If you haven’t guessed it, Annie Palmer is also known as the white witch. And according to the legend, Annie haunts the grounds of her former spouse, John Palmer, owner of Rose Hall Plantation.

After murdering Palmer, 2 subsequent husbands and numerous male workers. Annie met her demise by a plantation worker, but visitors have claimed to have seen ghostly white figures or heard screams from the estate. Spooky.
