Falmouth Jamaica: A Beautiful Mix of Old and New

Jamaica, though a tiny island in the Caribbean Sea, offers breathtaking sights, amazing views and exhilarating adventures for all those who choose to visit this wonderful region. It was initially named ‘Santiago’, but was later renamed as Jamaica, when it came under English rule.

Falmouth Jamaica, founded by Thomas Reid in 1769 was initially a market center and a port before it became a very popular tourist attraction and an ideal getaway for visitors of all ages. It is the gateway into the island and is stuck between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. Regardless of whether you want to snorkel the blue Caribbean waters, soak up sun, get a breathtaking view of the mountains, lush rainforests and reef-lined beaches, or enjoy and savor Jamaican history and architecture at its best, acquaint yourself with its vibrant arts culture and spicy Caribbean cuisine–Falmouth is the place to do it.

Falmouth is an essential stopover for cruise ship passengers and is well known for its community-led walking tours. The famous Dunn’s River Falls near Ocho Rios is just an hour away from Falmouth, while Mystic Mountain that’s also in Ocho Rios is a rainforest adventure park that offers unique outdoor activities for kids and adults alike.

No visit to Falmouth is complete without rafting on a long bamboo raft along one of the most beautiful rivers-the Martha Brae River. The three-mile raft ride that takes about one and a half hours is an amazing trip that’s so relaxing that you won’t want it to end. If you’re lucky you’ll even get a hand at steering with a long bamboo pole. Cruisers of all ages delight in the abundance of adventure that Ocho Rios and Falmouth offer, such as sailing, climbing waterfalls, river tubing, exploring the Green Grotto caves, and drifting down the Martha Brae River.

You can also take a tour of the great houses that lie in the vicinity of Montego Bay, enjoy the shopping area that fronts the beach, visit the old public buildings, the small wooden houses, brick Georgian mansions and plantation complexes, while savoring a range of architecture that spans the 18th and 19th centuries.

In addition, while in Falmouth you can experience the magic of its awesome beaches, including secluded beaches with quiet stretches of sand, and active beaches that are scenic and private.

Falmouth may not have many restaurants, but the few that are there offer delicious, authentic Jamaican staples and mouth-watering delicacies.

Falmouth, with its cobble-stoned streets is a mix of the old and new that has tastes and shades of history intertwined in its towns and villages. Whatever you do or don’t do, you cannot afford to miss tasting the divine cuisine that it offers. There may not be many restaurants but the few of them that are there offer the best of Caribbean cuisine, so much so that you won’t want to leave even after you’ve had your fill.
