“Make time for a detour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

These falls are beautiful and basically spoon fed to you. No hiking, no worries, clean, totally safe and as refreshing as it gets. The zip line is a great time as well. Safe, fun and not overly taxing for those of us out of shape. $42/ piece. Our guides Mario and Dylan were excellent and a lot of fun.
****If you would like to make this trip one that you will never forget, please consider taking a little detour into Black River, to St. Theresa's Catholic school. It is run by the saintly, Sister Susan who will great you as an old friend. Please consider this short detour, if coming from Negril, just stay on A2 into town right after the hospital. They have 200 students in 4 classrooms and need any school supplies or donations that you can bring by. It is a little off the beaten path so they don't receive any help from the tourist industry. Your few dollars can be stretched miles in a place like this. St. Susan's number is 876 965-9339. if you let her know you're coming you may well be treated to an impromptu concert from the children that will stir your soul! You will never make a bigger difference in someone's life than you will on this short detour. It will be the highlight of your vacation.

“Naturally beautiful...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place is beautiful. They offer a shuttle to the falls. There are 2 pools you can relax in. The water fall has a high rope so you can jump into the fall. There are several sections of the falls to swim in or take photos. The gift shop is financially feasible to purchase good gifts. Excellent experience!

“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.
