1st timers to jamacia - HELP !!

Hi can anyone help us in our decision making. We are planning our first trip to Jamacia but are unsure what resort to stay in. We plan to do the following excursions (Rio Grande Rafting / Triple Treat (incl. Dunn's River Falls / Black River Safari) but are unsure how far the venues are from Runaway Bay Royal Decameron Club Caribbean hotel which we have been thiking of booking. Your opinions would be most welcome as to be honest we are totally confused where to book. Many thanks Gazzadevon

Runaway Bay is a great central location. The only thing I would suggest is perhaps leave out the Black River Safari as it is a LONG ways from there. Instead I would do : Rio Grand, Dunns River and either Green Grotto Caves or Mystic Mountain...

Blessings and respect.

I agree Runaway Bay is a good central location and that the Black River is a long way to the Black River. If you must do the rafting, Duns River, and the Black River then a hotel in the Montego Bay area would probably be better from a location stand point. Otherwise plan for a long trip from Runaway Bay to the Black River and back.

Rnaway bay is a great area to go to. and close to amny places

dunns river falls is about 15min away.

Black river is around 4hrs away, a long day out.. although we did it and combined YS falls as they are relatively close to each other.. did enjoy the day out though.

RDCC is a great hotel.
