“Fun Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

We recently went on a tour to Mayfield Falls with JuJu Tours. Be prepared for a bumpy long ride getting there - but the views are amazing, and you are able to see a different part of Jamaica. We never felt unsafe on the tour. The guide was wonderful. He would help us maneuver on the rocks and tell us which ones were extra slippery. You need to wear water shoes. We had many great pictures taken but they were by the JuJu tour guides so we did not have to pay anything to the Mayfield Falls guides for the pictures. The falls themselves weren't very amazing since it was the dry season, but the walk and the scenery were worth the trip. Very helpful if you are in pretty good shape for this tour as there is a lot of walking and a little hiking.

“Very Beautiful Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

Wow, great place. You have to have water shoes and be able hike here but it is beautiful. They send you out with your own guide and he helps you walk up the falls and points out all kinds of interesting information about the plants you pass by. Part of the trip is in the river and part is out of the water. Both are amazing. Our guide held our camera and took pictures of us which was nice. Very different experience from YS Falls, I liked this better. It is in a remote area in the mountains/hills and has a pretty bad road but it was a cool trip there - great scenery. We went the long way on the way there. Didn't eat there but they have food and crafts to buy. I would bring US$ to pay for this activity, that's they way it is priced and we had a little trouble paying in Jamaican and getting change back.

“Fun Place to Explore!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

We were on a cruise stop and we were told not to get off in Jamica because it was not safe. I hired Trever because of all the reviews on Tripadviser. We had a group of 14 that wanted to go to Mayfield Falls. Since Dunns river was so far from Montego Bay, we chose this adventure. Wow, it was so much fun. It was an hour from the port and we drove on some really bumpy roads. We were given 3 guides that led us down a trail to a natural flowing river. We walked along beautiful clear water. He showed us how to swim and where to jump into the river. We also swam through a cave and jumped out of a tree into the water. The waterfalls massaged our backs and cooled us off. It was a kids and adult Paradise. The guides worked on tipping only. Now there were people smoking drugs on the way but we asked them to leave and we had no problems with them. We felt completely safe and we would like to spend more time there next time.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The falls were basically some pools and a couple small "falls". Guide was nice and helpfull with those that were not used to walking on slippery rocks.
$15 per person to start was fair; guide tip and photographer added up to over $70 for two persons.
