Great place to cool off

Had a great time visiting the ys falls, swam in the falls and had time to relax in the pool. The whole place is beautiful and was well worth the visit!

If you are a lover of nature and is looking for a place to unwind, let down your hair, have some outdoor fun with the family after a long busy work week in the city then YS Falls is the place to be. The lush green garden coupled with the soothing sound of the river and water falls will allow... More

This place is less famous than the Dunns River Falls. Its simply nature at it best. You can't climb to the top as you can at Dunns River, because there are 7 levels to it and it is too high. You can swim on 2 of the levels and there are 2 man made pools if you prefer to stay... More

Really nice falls for photos and for a cooling swim in the pools, there are several levels for the swimming and would advise you have water shoes for the rocks (no smooth concrete here aka dunns) At the bottom there is a shop selling usual tourist tat but also drinks and snacks. There is also 2 pools one filled with... More

Really long journey through some of the poorest parts of Jamaica but worth the rough ride. Amazing cool spring water pools, excellent staff to guide you and take amazing pictures in the falls!!

This place is about 45 min from Sandals Whitehouse and the current road construction makes the trip horrific if the traffic backs up. Once you arrive on the grounds, there is a place with rest rooms, beer ($3) and souvenirs. You get onto a trailer pulled by a tractor and go another 5 minutes or so up to the waterfalls.... More

We visited the YS Falls as they are closer to Negril that the Dunn's Falls. Beautiful place that I would highly recommend!! There are locals throughout each level of the falls to help you walk them, as it can be steep or slippery in areas. Our teens were able to climb the falls, jump from one level to another, and...

We went ziplining and went through the waterfalls. Zip lining was fun but our group was large which made it take very long. They extended our trip so we could spend time at the falls. GORGEOUS. Wish I had brought a snack though because besides chips there was no food to purchase.

My family with three young daughters spent the whole day here- we were dropped off by our Jamaican driver a bit before they opened, so we sat in the shade and ate our Juici patties. They let us in a bit before 9:30 and we were the first ones on the tractor and for a while, the only ones in... More
