Reggae, Rum & Relaxation

Once one of Jamaica’s busiest ports, Falmouth is one of the best-preserved Georgian towns in the whole Caribbean. The port fell into decline over the years and became a relatively sleepy place, that is, until $200 million was invested in it in 2011 to turn Falmouth into the tourist destination and world-class cruise destination it is today.

Bustling new shops, restaurants, and hotels now jostle for position with the graceful historic buildings. Stroll along the waterfront to get a sense of how life might have been in the 18th century when Falmouth was a major hub for Jamaica’s sugar, molasses, and rum exports. And speaking of the island’s tipple of choice, take the Appleton Estate rum tour to learn how “the pirate’s drink” is made, and to—of course—sample a variety of rums.

Head just outside of town to Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica’s most iconic attractions. Descending the “steps” of the waterfall is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can also go horseback riding, river rafting, swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Cove, take a horse-and-buggy ride, or even feel the rhythm of the island with a Bob Marley tour.
