    We're planning to go on a daytrip to Dunn's River Falls from Montego Bay (Iberostar).  Does anyone have recommendations for where and how to book a daytrip?  How much should we expect to pay?  Any other tips?  Thanks

      I went in Feb from the Jewel in Ocho Rios. So I'm sure the cost would differ. We just booked ours through the resort. I would contact them first, but you can also just search the web for private type deals. We traveled to a sandals i think. Left from there on a sailboat with a big group of ppl. There was food on the way there. Then drinks on the way back. It was an awesome day. I would def do it again if I were not preggers. However you book, Have Fun!!!!

        Hi! Your resort should be able to help you book this trip when you arrive. We went with our wedding party and had a great time. It can be a bit of a climb for some people (we left the older people on the beach!). My one piece of advice is to bring your own water socks. You know, those shoes you can wear in the water. They do offer rentals (they cost us like $5) but I would have felt way better wearing my own!! Oh, and bring a waterproof camera. We just had disposable ones, and they worked great. You can buy a dvd of your climb, but its a bit of a rip off. The camera guy follows you around for half the trip and it costs like $40.

         

        Also beware, to exit the falls you need to walk through a craft market. They people there are very pushy. It was hard to get out without buying anything, but we left our money on the bus since we were going to be in the water!

         

        It was a bit of a long trip. We came from Negril, so it was like a 3 hour bus ride each way. Our tour included lunch at a neat restaurant next to a waterfall and then some shopping. It was a great day!

         

        Here is a couple photos of our trip:

          Thanks for the info!  I'll probably ask my wedding coordinator for the cost from the Iberostar.
