Truely a wonderful place. Though the road from Port Antonio to Reach Falls is narrow and rough, takes some 45 minutes to get there, the place is certainly worth the trouble. Be sure to take a guided tour upstream from the Falls. Feel yourself like Robinson Crusoe exploring the wild jungle. It is a delight!

untouched nature,crystal-clear water. Do definitely the local tour for 1000 JMD.. We walked the river from the bottom up to spring, saw many caves, pools, waterfalls. Just incredible

When on our way to this waterfall, we got stopped by local offering to take up through the small pools, and essentially trespass through the waterfall. We weren't sure at first as it sounded quite dubious, but we then went ahead. It was totally worth it as you got to see so much more rather than the restricted small area... More

This is a must! Leonard walks you through the water to get to the falls, points out where to step, shows you where you can jump, picks fruit from the tree for you to snack on AND takes your photo the whole time! Do not miss this.

Was an amazing day set up by Carla and her boys were our private tour guides. we had the beautiful falls and wading pools all to ourselves. Water shoes are a must as rocks are slippery in some places but it was a great adventure and tons of fun jumping into the crystal clear pools.

The "official" Reach Falls experience just gets you into the main pool. I highly recommend getting a local guide from the main road turnoff. They're friendly, safety-aware, and dependent on you for their livelihood. Jonai took me on a fantastic hike up and down the six lower pools, plunging under falls and diving through hidden tunnels. It was amazing.

No tour buses or crowds here. Spend as much time as you like walking up, down, through the falls. A guide will walk you up and through (included with admission cost), or you are free to experience on your own. To go deep behind and into some of the caves, and to get the full experience, I would recommend the... More

Reach Falls is a great adventure and very fun. It wasn't crowded at all, and we all appreciated the fun and beauty of the falls. While not necessarily difficult, one does need good balance, ability to swim, and be a bit fearless. The guide was helpful and we were all confident in his ability to help anybody if needed.

Myself my mother and 5little kids and several adults met Leonard and trapped down a slippery path to the breathtaking falls. Great day out for the fit and adventurous, swimming across pools, jumping off rocks and exploring glorious nature. Had the BEST CURRY GOAT ever at the roadside shop and restaurant. Highly recommended and def call Leonard as your guide... More

The main falls are nice but a private tour of many more falls organized by the staff at Kanopi House for guests is truly amazing
