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

Expected more but it was a great experience for a first time. Staff was courteous and responded well to rules they had in place. Only suggestion is that this place is avoided on public holidays as it is not as much fun when overcrowded. Will definitely go again.

This is a must do. This is the highlight of your vacation. The ride is approximately 4 hrs literally going down a stream on a bamboo raft. Carry music, refreshments and something to eat. cannot go wrong.

We hired a local guide and walked up to the main fall. I'm not a good swimmer so I walked with the tour guide most of the time. The bottom of river/ pool was very slippery so wear water shoes or light sneakers. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a fresh coconut for 100 JMD.

We loved this place- went twice- both times with our own guides to the part of the falls below the government run area. Here you can swim, jump off rocks and climb up the waterfalls. Wear sandals and swimsuits. The guides charged us $10 each plus the Route Taxi to get there and back. What a bargain and the money... More

Hire a guide and hike up through the falls. So many places to stop and swim. The government entrance was closed on Monday & Tuesday, but you can still get in with a guide.
