Things to do in Falmouth
As activities go, Falmouth Jamaica excursions pack a punch. Within easy reach of the town, you’ll find the Martha Brae Rafting Village, Luminous Lagoon, and Greenwood Great House. Dunn’s River Falls is on everyone’s must-do list but a Mystic Mountain Adventure tour should also be on your radar. The best tours from Falmouth also feature a visit to the off-the-beaten-track Blue Hole Secret Falls, tubing on the Rio Bueno River, and a visit to the Bob Marley Museum in Nine Mile.
History buffs will enjoy the many Georgian-era buildings on show along the waterfront district but to really get a sense of the island’s past, a visit to one of Jamaica’s great houses is a must. Rose Hall Great House and Good Hope Great House are both great examples and worth a visit. You’ll get to learn what life was like here in the 18th century as the country was developing its own identity.
About Falmouth, Jamaica
Falmouth is the capital city of Jamaica’s Trelawny Parish, and is a popular tourist town on Jamaica's north shore. It has a busy cruise ship terminal that drops keen travelers off for a day of exploring in a well-placed location between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. The town itself is very walkable and several walking tours are available to give you a deeper insight into the area.
Just outside the cruise port gates, you’ll find yourself in the historical center with many bars, restaurants, and shopping opportunities. Take a walk up Falmouth St which will take you to the heart of the Old Town, Water Square. For tours that are a bit further afield, like Dunn’s River Falls and Martha Brae Rafting, you’ll need a car but most Falmouth Jamaica excursions include transportation so you can sit back and enjoy the journey!
