Take some time out of your sunning and swimming to pay homage to a musical legend. Located in Kingston, this museum occupies the former home of Bob Marley. Inside, you'll see personal artifacts, Marley's personal recording studio and his bedroom, among other highlights. Be sure to snap a few photos by the surrounding fence, decked out in Rastafarian "ice, gold and green" (or red, yellow and green). 

Keep in mind that this site can get very busy, which made the experience disappointing for some. Still, others said their tour guides made Marley and his music come alive. 

You can visit the Bob Marley Museum every day from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (75-minute tours are offered every half-hour). Admission to the museum (which includes a tour) costs $25 for adults and $12 for children ages 4 to 12. Additional tours are available, including tours of Marley's recording studio, Tuff Gong; prices vary. On-site facilities at the museum include a cafe and a gift shop. For more information and to book a tour, visit the museum's website.

#1 Dunn's River Falls and Park (Ocho Rios)

If you're staying in Ocho Rios or just visiting for the day from a cruise ship, travelers insist you allot a couple of hours to climb the Dunn's River Falls. You can take a guided climb of the waterfall, hike a trail alongside it or just recline and relax on the beach at the bottom. 

Vacationers say that climbing along the rocks to the top of the falls isn't rigorous, but it can be slippery. Recent visitors said you can keep your footing by wearing water shoes. Given that you'll be splashed, then soaked by the cascading water on the ascent – and some say it's a bit dangerous – it's best if you leave your young kids (or any vacation buddies who aren't strong swimmers) at the foot of the falls. The attractions recommends allotting 45 minutes to an hour to climb the falls.
