The Caribbean consists of a cluster of islands within the Gulf of Mexico surrounded by the United States to the north, Mexico to the west, South America to the south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. For many people, this is a great place to unwind and get away from home (especially to escape the cold Winters) as the region offers sandy beaches, mountains, Caribbean charm of its people and towns, posh all-inclusive resorts, and of course waterfalls!

Many of the waterfalls in these islands provide perfect excuses to cool off for a swim beneath them or for quality time spent away from the resorts and back into Nature. Their invigorating qualities complement all the amenities and food you're likely to have to round out your time in the tropics.

So far, we only have a humble sampling of waterfalls though we're hopeful to experience more waterfalls with continued visits to more Caribbean islands...

Below are the waterfall subregions that we've been to. Click on a subregion for more details about the area and its waterfalls.

Dunn's River Falls Jamaica: This island of contrasts and extremes has been well known for its beaches and all-inclusive resorts. However, within reasonable reach of the cruise ships and posh resorts are numerous waterfalls sprinkled among the many freshwater springs and streams tumbling down its lush interior. It's the perfect way to cool off from the tropical heat while also getting a taste of the country and its people.

Sault Falls St Lucia: This dimunitive Caribbean island is best known for its signature twin peaks known as the Pitons. But that geologic feature underscores the island's mountainous terrain. Mix that with lots of rain and you have the makings of many waterfalls nestled amongst lush rainforests and cloud forests. Of course the island's Caribbean charm, multi-cultural influences, and resorts make this a place a hit with holiday makers.

Somerset Falls Reader Submissions: We can't possibly visit every single waterfall in the Caribbean. Fortunately, there are readers kind enough to share their knowledge and experiences by writing up their own guides for those waterfalls that we haven't been to.
