Dunn River Falls Jamaica

The Dunn's River Falls is one of the best natural treasures in Jamaica. Cascading water sparkles in the Jamaican sunlight and is fenced by lush, tropical plants and trees. What makes Jamaica Dunn's River Falls so wonderful? The moving water, very rich in natural minerals created steps down the length of the river, giving the Dunn's River Falls a distinctive shape. Few of these terraces are so wide that small lagoons have actually formed; generating pockets of sapphire water. It is one of the most lovely tourist attractions in summer due to its natural Jacuzzi. This is great spa town located in Tuscany in north-central Italy that has been populated since ancient times. It lies approximately 23 miles northeast of Orbetello and the coast. 

Well, adjacent to the village, 800 liters per second of sulphurous water at 37 °C gushes over a waterfall and down into a cascade of natural pools formed by the deposition of calcareous rock from evaporation of the water. Dunn’s River Falls are mainly fed by spring water, which is rich with calcium carbonate and is depositing travertine. This type of waterfalls is described by geologists as "a living phenomenon" because they’re incessantly rebuilt by the sediments in spring water. Dunn's River Falls is one of the very uncommon travertine waterfalls in the world that empties directly into the sea.
Well, climbing the waterfalls is a widespread tourist activity and is often, but not exclusively, performed with the help of tour guides from the park. It takes about one and half hours to climb with short breaks for photos and video recordings taken by the guides. The falls are bordered by lush, green vegetation that shades the area from the sun and saves the area, and climbers, cool. The climb can be comparatively tough so is often undertaken as a hand-holding human chain led by a guide to make it easier.
