AS the title says, the water is cold, but pleasant all the same in the lovely Caribbean sunshine. Quite a journey from Montego bay centre and VERY bumpy roads! Took over 1.5 hours to get there, but it was nice to take in "Real Jamaica" and see some of the beautiful scenery. Walk is steep track down to the falls and steep to decent into the falls. Off the beaten track a little and a better experience with less tourists and none of the creepy hand holding you get with YS and Dunns. This trip is better suited for someone who is more active due to climbing and navigating the falls- however the guides assist you. (Although I saw older people managing perfectly well). Definitely ladies... WEAR A SWIMSUIT or cover over with a T-shirt!! you WILL loose it in the current as I saw people do! You start with a bit of a walk to the falls which is nice and the guide points out interesting nature features and wildlife. Then you have approximately 1.5 hours in the falls, which you can swim in too. The guide we had was CRAZY! jumping in from huge Heights and diving in, which you are allowed to do of course if you are a good swimmer. You can even dive under caves but that is not for the faint hearted! The guide was kind enough to take pictures with my waterproof camera, but of course a photographer comes along and you can purchase these at the end if you wish. We had lunch after the walk which was a little pricey for what you get. Lobster available for $25 dollars, chicken for $14 and Shrimp for $18. Small portions served with plantain and rice. All in all a good trip out and glad we went even if the heavens opened and kept us there longer than we needed to be.
