Dunns River Falls - Jamaica

I've only received this card today. It was sent by a portuguese postcrosser Dúlio "luso". He went on a cruise for his honey moon and he visited Jamaica.

"Dunn's River Falls is a famous waterfall near Ocho Rios and a major Caribbean tourist attraction. The falls empty into the Caribbean Sea. It is one of the very few rivers in the world that actually fall directly into the sea.
The waterfalls are staggered and span some 600 feet, several small lagoons exist interspersed between the vertical sections of the falls. Climbing up the waterfalls is a popular tourist activity and is often, but not exclusively performed with the help of tour guides from the park. The falls can be walked up with relative ease, often a human chain is used snaking up the falls behind the tour guide."

Parts of the James Bond movie Dr. No were filmed at the Falls, including a scene of Ursula Andress walking onto the beach. - in: wikipedia.
