If you visit the beautiful island of Jamaica or you live in Jamaica – here are 4 really amazing places to visit.
- Dunn’s River Falls
Dunn’s River located in Ocho Rios, St. Ann is one of my favourite places to visit in the summer. Hearing the waterfalls and embracing the scenery is very calming to me – maybe it’s because I live near to the sea so I appreciate those stuff.
A little history about Dunn’s River Falls
It is said to be the location of the legendary battle of “Las Chorreras”. This battle was fought in the year, 1657 and took place near Dunn’s River Falls. It was between the English and the Spanish Expeditionary Force from Cuba. The battle was in fact for ownership of the island. The outcome of the battle was in favour of The English who won. Under the leadership of the British, Charles Pryce was the first owner of “Las Chorreras”.

- Dolphin Cove
Who doesn’t like dolphins?! Everyone loves dolphins – well most people do! The Dolphin Cove is a marine attraction – the best marine attraction in the Caribbean. The tour guide provides you with interesting information about dolphins and you will receive various activities to choose from – my personal favourite is the “Dolphin Trek” because I can’t swim and I get to walk under water 🙂

- Rose Hall Great House
Just 20 minutes from Montego Bay, The Rose Hall Great House was the home of Annee Palmer, one who is claimed to have killed her 3 husbands and many lovers on the Rose Hall Great House premises.
A little history about the Rose Hall Great House Property
Built in 1770 by John Palmer and his wife, it eventually became the residence of their grandnephew, John Rose Palmer. In 1820, Palmer married Annee, a beautiful but feisty English girl.
What John did not know is that his wife possessed “black magic” powers that would eventually lead to his demise. During her reign as mistress of the plantation, Annee did away with two more husbands and countless lovers. “The White Witch of Rose Hall” has fascinated generations – it has been said that Annee still passes through the house.
The Rose Hall Great House has a day tour and a night tour in addition to 54 amazing golf courses. The night tour starts at 6:30pm and ends at 9:15pm so you know you are in for a few surprises – I’ve never been to this attraction however I hear its a spooky! If you like spooky – you should go.
