We got there 15 minutes before it closed for the day. We had not appreciated in advance that this is a 'official' site with tickets and controlled access. They refused us tickets but did let us have a look at the lower waterfall. It probably makes sense from a Jamaican Government perspective but we much prefer less touristy adventures.

Reach falls by itself is a pretty falls - nothing too very extra-ordinary . It isn't big like some of the other ones we have seen nor it is voluminous . But what makes it a lot of fun is how you get there. We heard about Leonard thru our host at a homestay and tripadvisor. We called him and... More

This is not Dunn's river falls, but the family really enjoyed the experience and it's well worth the visit! Our guide was excellent. We had the opportunity to climb through a couple caves, swim, and hike. My daughter wanted to go to Dunn's River, but at the end, she was singing Reach Falls praises. I highly recommend!

We were the only people at Reach Falls when we visited and it was amazing. Beautiful falls in a quiet setting, and well worth the trek upstream which is a option extra at no extra cost. If we had visited the day before we would have encountered another group at the falls... Katy Perry and entourage! We were already aware... More

We used a local guide, Leonard, instead of the government guides. A very different experience. He starts at the bottom of the Falls instead of the middle (where the government guides start) - makes all the difference. From this vantage point, the Falls are absolutely breathtaking. We found Leonard thru Trip advisor reviews. Check earlier reviews for Reach Falls to... More

We spent the better part of the morning a Reach Falls....what an amazing experience! I wasn't sure what to expect and was a little nervous about any steep or slippery climb but was happy to find a staircase that led down to the falls and main pool area. We were able to go under the falls and into the caves,... More

the little falls, the pools, the swimming, the jumping of the falls. Don't take the touristic route, but ask a local guide!!!
