Our friend from high school came to visit us in early February and one of her requests was to go to the Blue Hole, which we have been to once before, because she had seen photos of it on our Facebook. To give you a basic idea, the Blue Hole is a smaller, less touristy version of Dunn’s River Falls, which most tourists visit when they come to Jamaica. We haven’t climbed Dunn’s River Falls because it just isn’t our thing to be surrounded by tourists…so can’t say for sure that the Blue Hole is better..but I’m gonna say it anyway…it’s better!!
Now, the Blue Hole isn’t exactly easy to find. On our first visit to Jamaica (oh you know, the one that changed our lives! In case you forgot…) we went with our friend Billy, who as far as I can tell, knows everything and knows how to get everywhere. So finding it without him the second time wasn’t exactly the easiest thing to do, but we made it! We kind of just asked around (it’s located just outside of Ocho Rios in an area called Exchange). Not everyone has heard of it and no one really knows it as “The Blue Hole” but this is the only name we’ve known it as. Our tour guide also called it that soooo…not really sure what to do about that. But as I said, we did find it and if you would like to go, we can definitely help you find it too!
You will definitely want to wear a bathing suit, bring a towel and a waterproof camera!
