What we will do
- We leave the dock behind and start our sightseeing tour towards Ocho Rios as far as the city’s most recent attraction - the Konoko gardens. “Coyaba” is a Taino term that means “”heaven” and, in fact, this garden is a true heaven, with paths passing through lush gardens, where carp, and turtles swim in its streams and ponds.
- An expert guide awaits us to take us on a tour of the gardens, where we will see exotic flowers shaded by enormous cedar and banyan trees.
- A hectare of lush tropical vegetation and a mountain stream constitute the backdrop of the Konoko museum, opened in a Spanish-style building complete with a courtyard and fountain. It even displays artefacts dating back to the pre-Columbian period that tell the story of the island to the present day.
- The last stop on our tour are the world-famous Dunn's River Falls, where we can admire the water falling from enormous rock terraces. An expert guide will assist us during a thrilling climb of 180 metres up to the top.
- Before returning to the port, we will have some time for shopping.
- The order of the visits may be subject to change without compromising the programmed visits.
