After traveling through history, visitors can get a taste of the Jamaican culture at Outamenhi, a 5-acre park featuring music, dancing and re-enactments.

Visitors can also partake in many outdoor experiences, such as water tours through the Falmouth Swamp, a wetland preserve that boasts snakes, iguanas and crocodiles. There are also water tours that take place on the Luminous Lagoon, a lagoon filled with glowing, bioluminescent organisms in which it is safe to swim. After paddling about in the glowing lagoon, tourists can relax on some of Falmouth's pristine beaches, such as Burwood and Jacob Tyler Public Bathing beaches, or take a short excursion to Dunn's River Falls and Park.
