Stopped here during a tour I was on. Never made it to dunns falls so cannot compare to those. However, had such a wonderful time here. Falls were beautiful, they had different layers going up so you can pick where you wanted to go in for a swim and found it to be more secluded that way. They had a... More

Loved it; water is cool though, so have to just jump in by swinging out off the rope and dropping into a pool of emerald colored water! There is also a warm water pool you can soak in afterwards.

We visited YS Falls with our 2 kids. The scenery was beautiful and we all loved the rope swing! Audley guided us through the falls and took pictures with our camera. He did a great job and captured many moments we would have missed, thanks Audley!

The zipline guides were VERY hard working. A couple zip-liners plowed them over and the dudes were positive about it. At the time of our visit the water levels were low, so the falls were not very active.

The falls are pretty, but if you're not interested in swimming in cool water or ziplining, perhaps save your money and spend another day on the beach instead. Could be a very fun family trip though.

As part of an excursion, we traveled to YS Falls. The bus ride was along a private road which then led to a tram pulled by a tractor to our final destination, YS Falls. We were there in January and it was beautiful so I can imagine what it would be in the Spring or Summer, which more flowers are... More

Shows you a totally different side of Jamaica. Beautiful mountains Horse country and waterfalls. The zip lining was very tempting maybe next time.

So beautiful! The water was so clear and clean. We swam and the extremely handsome lifeguards, were so agile they could take pictures of people while standing on the slippery rocks. They helped me with my 2 year old son. They held our hands and got us to the place that would be better for him to swim. There is... More

Took a trip to ys falls while touring the island of jamaica and was totally awesome to see such a spectacular waterfall. Affordable price to get in and went zip lining overtop the falls for a real thrill and birds eye view of the pristine beauty.
