A Day Spent In Paradise

By Denise Salman

Creating delightful memories is what a trip to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, is all about, so friends these are the places you must visit whenever you get there.

Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios

This beautiful property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest. Visitors have the opportunity to interact and "Swim With" dolphins, enjoying the thrill and charm of these amazing lovable creatures. Visitors can also swim with, hold, feed and learn about the evolutionary secrets of the Caribbean sharks. They can capture their dream of being a dolphin trainer for the day.

Dolphin Cove is the place to spend the day enjoying lots of fun activities. There is something for everyone. Entrance includes and allows guests the following activities as often as they wish. Guests can captain their own mini-boats and explore the coast, interact and snorkel with stingrays, take a glass-bottom kayak ride to explore the fascinating underwater world, watch the hilarious Shark Show and interact with exotic birds, snakes and iguanas on the Jungle Trail walk.

Relax on the glistening white sandy beaches, enjoy the tropical surroundings, taste the famous Jamaican coffee at the Star Buccaneers coffee shop, browse for souvenirs or jewellery at the gift shops.

See the Shark Show while the one-legged pirates roam freely along the boardwalk of “Little Port Royal” and perform a “jig or two”. Entrance is included with all dolphin and shark interactive programs. Once at Dolphin Cove, you’ll have the most exciting experience of your lifetime.

After all that visitors will want to take the wild fun trip along the coast to Dunns River Falls. Where they will hold hands with all those who enjoy climbing and a guide will show them exactly what they need to do to make it to the top of the falls.

A very invigorating massage is what they'll get, if they should decide to stop for a while and sit before a rock where the water flows over. It will beat on your head and your shoulders, leaving them with a great relaxed feeling. Another surprise offered by nature. Visitors will also want to enjoy the exhilarating bobsled ride, which was inspired by our Jamaican winter Olympians. After all that it will be time for a lovely meal at Mystic Dining.

Where the panoramic view is great and the food is excellent. After you have rested for a while you will want to take flight through the tops of the rainforest with the "Canopy zip line tour" or you might want to see eye to eye with the wild life when you take the “Sky Explorer Tours”. Visitors also enjoy seeing the colorful Jamaican butterflies as they fly among the beautiful flowers at the "Butterfly Attraction Garden". And visitors should not leave until they hop on over to Chukka Caribbean.

Where they will extend all that fun. They'll want to take the country bus trip to Bob Marley's Birth place, where he was buried. While they rock to his great Reggae songs and check out all the other things. They can do while they are enjoying this wonderful adventure; after all this visitors will agree with me, when I say Jamaica is truly a paradise.
