“A break from the ordinary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Breathtaking views, refreshing waters, lots of ground to cover, ziplining and really friendly staff. The tractor ride out to the falls was one of the best parts. The souvenir shop is well stacked.

“Take a leap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We loved leaping from the high rope into the water. Even my 7 year old couldn't wait to try again and again! The whole site is beautiful and the guide was extremely friendly and helpful.

“Fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Way better then Dunn River Falls
Is nice to swim in the river, sit back under the falls and let the water rush over your entire body.
You can climb the stairs to the top level get in the water, take pictures. If you have a little courage, you can swing from the rope and drop into the pool at the bottom of the high level of the falls.

“Absolutely Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

some of the most picturesque waterfalls I have ever seen. The waters are crystal clear when inside, but are a lovely jade or turquoise from a distance. There is a place to picnic and swim and go for a lovely walk. It's worth getting out of the resort and driving through lush Jamaican country side. Lots of fresh fruit sold on the way!

“Long drive but worth it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you are staying in Negril, it's about a 2 hr drive. A little far but worth it. The guide had us jump from the falls which was awesome. Then you climb a little higher and they have a Tarzan rope. I'm not much of an adventurous person but I'm glad I did them. It's a bit pricey but if your looking for something different than the beach, I'd say go.
