Despite the crowds, climbing Dunn's River Falls is a must-do. Cascading 600 feet to the sea, this waterfall tumbles over a series of protruding rock ledges that form a natural staircase. Follow your guide, join hands with your fellow visitors, and ascend the slippery rocks. Or stay at the base and just swim in the pools. To miss the busloads of tourists, avoid the falls on cruise ship days. Be prepared for an onslaught of vendors at the summit. –Candyce Stapen
