Falmouth was once considered to be the most cosmopolitan city in the western world. Often referred to as the “Paris of the Indies,” the town boasted 5 newspapers, a vast number of merchant shops, a lively fine arts and literary society, and one of the largest coastal markets of the time. The town was carefully planned from its birth, with wide streets in a regular grid, an adequate water supply, and public buildings. It even had piped water before New York City.

Today Falmouth offers tourists a relaxing, sun filled atmosphere with gorgeous beaches and great restaurants (lobster anyone?). Fun and adventure are also just down the road. Owner Direct Vacation Rentals can connect owners of holiday accommodations, villa rentals, condo rentals, and apartment rentals with travelers looking for a vacation accommodation, villa rental, or apartment rental.

A short distance away, in Ocho Rios, tourists can spend the day at Dunns River Falls. A cascading waterfall makes its way from the river down to the Caribbean Sea offering tourists of any age an exhilarating experience. A day pass at the park costs only fifteen US dollars and includes an experienced guide to lead visitors throughout the park. Climbing experience is not required, just comfortable clothes and shoes with good tread. Find an accommodation, apartment rental, villa rental, vacation rental, or condo rental through Owner Direct Vacation Rentals in Falmouth, Jamaica.

Visitors to Falmouth will also enjoy one of Jamaica’s most fascinating, yet best kept secrets; Luminous Lagoon (Glistening Waters). In this lagoon live a plethora of bio-luminescent microorganisms that, when moved, emit light. Throw a handful of water in the air, and watch it "rain" down, like fairy dust. Fish seem to glow as they glide through the water. Slip beneath the surface at night and experience something magical as light emanates from beneath. The warm brackish water formed from the merging of the Caribbean Sea and the Martha Brae River remains the same temperature year round. This, along with the sediment from the mangroves encircling the lagoon, provides the perfect conditions for the microscopic organisms to thrive.
