Dunn’s River Falls one of Jamaica’s national treasures. There are few places where the Arawak name “Xayamaca” – land of rivers and springs – is more apt. The Spaniards called the area “Las Chorreras” but has degenerated over the years to “Ocho Rios” (meaning eight rivers), although there are actually only four rivers in the area – Cave River, Roaring River, Turtle River and Dunns River. The waterfalls or springs is truly one of the most beautiful spots on the island.
