Dunn`s River Falls

The Dunn`s River website lists Wed.,Thu.,and Friday as cruise ship days.Would these be the only days that the cruise ships come to Ocho Rios?

cruise ships ports o call are known well in advance, so they probably list all that they know...just get there before them...go early say 9 am or after 4Pm to avoid the cruise crowds.

Wed is heaviest influx of cruiseships into Ochie,therein to Dunn's River, tho it's conga-line city much of rest of week. You might enjoy Mayfields Falls in Dolphin Head Mts about 40 min from MoBay considerably more. Not a rock climb but a gentler series of falls
and bamboo bridges in wilder mountain country that feels more Jamaica, less touristic.

Actually, I`ll be staying in Negril so would the YS FALLS be a better choice than Mayfields? My wife and I have been to Dunn`s many years ago but we will have another couple with us this on this trip and they may want to see Dunn`s River.Thanks for your help.

Mayfields is closer to Negril than YS which is about 2 hours from Negril via
South Coast A1 road to Black River then
inland. If you go early in am, you can also avoid most of daytrippers. Combining YS with a trip out to Pelican Bar, a mangrove stilt house/actually 2 now, about 1/4 mile offshore is a good
daytrip, with a possible stop at Peter Tosh Mausoleum in Belmont and lunch/dinner at Oliver's or Culloden Cafe in Whitehouse en route back.
