    Wondering what our family can do at Dunn's River Falls (Falmouth shore excursion) if we don't want to climb the falls. Looks like there may be a beach there, too? How long will be at the park? Looks like it's about 2 hours exclusive of transportation.

    Welcome back, Victoria! I've been excited, as I'm sure you have, to learn all about the brand new Port Adventures in store for guests when they visit Falmouth, Jamaica, as this is a new port for Disney this year.

    Dunn's River Falls is certainly on the top of the "must do" list for a visit to Jamaica. This unique destination is the spot where four rivers, referred to as Chorreras, meaning waterfalls or springs, all merge and flow straight into the Caribbean sea. It is one of the few rivers in the world that actually flows right into the Caribbean and is one of the most gorgeous spots on the whole island.

    The Dunn's River Falls Express Port Adventure includes a 70 minute mini-bus ride to the falls, where guests will get to enjoy the falls and the park area for approximately 80 minutes before re-boarding their bus for the ride back to the pier. The falls is not a stand-alone attraction in this area. In fact, there is a beautiful park surrounding the falls that features endless tropical greenery with areas to walk or jog, a bit of shopping, a cafeteria featuring local flavors and a gorgeous beach area. If you choose not to actually climb the falls, you can watch those guests who are daring enough to make the trek up, but you can view them from a terrace or deck nearby. Then, wander the grounds of the park or relax in the sun on the beach. 

    I hope those details help as you make Port Adventure reservations for your cruise, Victoria. As always, feel free to stop back with any other questions as you continue to plan!
