We booked through Island Routes a trip to YS Falls to zipline and tour the falls. I was scared to death and the zipline staff new it. Dane helped calm me tremendously and was very patient. He and Jonathan worked well together. We then had a guide show us the falls and encouraged me to jump with the tree rope... More

The waterfalls were very muddy. I'm not sure if this is why certain sections were closed off. Even though it was muddy, it's still a pretty neat waterfall I'm sure there's more to do when the falls are clear. The natural pools just looked like swimming pools. The Tarzan swing into the waterfalls is fun but definitely an at your... More

My husband and I took an excursion from Sandals Negril to YS Falls and the Black River Safari tour. It was a better price to do both tours at one price which included lunch...I think it was $42 pp. We started with the Safari tour which was on a boat through the dark rivers of Jamaica. We saw lots of... More

My family of four visited this spot on a 3 stop tour from Montego Bay. We spent about an hour here and we loved it. My daughter did the rope swing and my wife waded into the falls. The area was very beautiful and well worth the hour we were able to spend here.

After our visit to Black River earlier in the day, it was a short drive to YS Falls. Admission at Black River included seeing this attraction as well. The YS Falls were beautiful! Our lifeguard and guide, Sheldon, was amazing. Not only does he know where every rock and step are, he was able to take great photos of our... More

My wife and I traveled alone, so when one of the lifeguards at the waterfalls saw us alone he took our camera, guiding us through the falls, posing us along the way for pics. He even got great candid pics, which we were unaware of, and got great shots.

I was a little disappointed. The pictures of YS falls are misleading. I was expecting a lagoon were you could also swim. What I found was a beautiful look waterfall, were you could jump into from a rope and then come out. The farm provides two big swimming pools for you to use after you have finished jumping from the... More
