Make sure you get one of the local guides who work there at the falls to take you upstream to the hidden caves under the stream and swimming in the clear refreshing pools up there. It's even better than Reach Falls itself!

We went on a Thursday and arrived at noon. Seemed like we were the only ones there! Guides name Kendrick was very knowledgeable, kind, friendly, experienced, and strong. Swam through pools to cave and I'm not in the best of shape. Highly recommend swimming into big cave and standing under waterfall inside. Must do!

We used a local guide that the hotel recommended. He took us just short of the falls, and carried our cameras so we could stumble through the waters. it was worth it and very affordable!

The trip to the falls is worth the effort as it is not in your normal tourist areas, take the time to climb to the top with the guide and swim in the cave. It is beautiful there are falls you can swim through, there are pools to swim in. This is a must see.

The falls are amazing and the tour option is a must. The guide actually takes you on a swim/climb up the falls and back and if your brave you can jump off the falls at the end. It was an amazing experience. The tour doesn't cost anything you just tip the guide. We tipped the guide 1000 Jamaican for the... More

One of the things that I really wanted to see during my first trip to Jamaica were the famous Falls that I have heard so much about. Jamaican nature is alive and breathing strong. There are plenty of sites to visit, from springs to water falls to the beautiful beaches that the Island has to offer. This time my pick... More

Such a great experience - the guides are well worth it and the water is crystal clear. The guides expect a tip at the end of the trip so make sure you have some small notes with you.

A fantastic morning climbing through the waterfall and caves of Reach Falls. Definitely hire the water shoes and make sure you use lots of mosquito spray. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Would highly recommend it!

Get a guide...it is worth it. The Lowes at Wilks Bay recommended a guide (can't remember his name, but he is one of the lifeguards who works at Reach). He took us to hidden holes and nooks that we would never would have found. It was a great adventure...even jumping off the cliff at the end (my 10 year old... More

Twas no doubt a harrowing ride up the windy road, locals at the turn off seeing unguided tourists jumping in their car (full of kids no less) and engaging us in highspeed chase around blind corners, dodging downed trees and territorial goats. Finally I decided to yield, not knowing their intentions, and let the car pass only to have it... More
