    1. 1

      Dunn’s River Falls and Park

      One of Jamaica’s national treasures, Dunn’s River Falls is one of the most beautiful spots on the island. As the river flows over the falls, the precipitation of calcium carbonate causes the deposits of travertine rock that makes this phenomenon live and grow. The regenerative quality of the site combined with the location near to the sea makes Dun’s River Falls a must-see.
