    Tour guide Akym!
    This fall is AMAZING, it is natural and beautiful. Me and my mum was guided by a lovely man called Akym, he was really patient and funny. He gave us the best mineral massage. He should get a pay rise as he is such an asset to your team. He is amazing at his job. Big up Akym💕 Tianna

    Most enjoyable day trip in Negril
    We had a great time at Benta River Falls. The destination is a must, and even our teenagers enjoyed it immensely. We had the nicest guides Dave and Penny who made our trip really memorable. Please get limestone rub!

    Benta River Falls tour
    This was an amazing experience. Climbing the walls, going under a waterfall, the rope swing and optional jump. Full body massage. TLC had it wrong. DO go chasing waterfalls. Francis our guide was fantastic and could be a massage therapist. He made sure we felt comfortable and helped us across and up the falls and took all of our photos. Great experience!

    Enjoy your day ❤️
    This is PERFECT ! Not too big to climb , not too deep ...the guides are very helpful as well . The water is so soft and the rocks are not slippery! Bring water shoes for extra security . They have food and drinks . This place is very therapeutic and mentally refreshing.

    Rockin the Benta nation
    I have done Dunns river falls, YS falls, Mayfield falls and now Benta . Absolutely recommended if your in the Negril area. If I was feeling more like a big drive. I would do YS, it's more scenic. Benta and Mayfield are a comparable river experience but Mayfield is for more fit people, it's a bit more strenuous especially leaving. So if your fit do both and if your a bit older or have small kids, do Benta .You won't regret it unless its raining or has been pouring.

    The best tourguide, ALEX (Kevin)
    We were welcomed by a lovely host who introduced us to our tour guide, Alex (KEVIN😂). He was very patient, polite, and professional. He gave us advice on other activities etc. and we will definitely be looking for them next time as well as recommending to family and friends.

    Breathtaking views in cool water
    I was lucky to meet a couple in Negril on 7 mile who recommended this gem and to take the guided tour with Jah T. So with a few new friends we took a drive to Bento and I must say it is one of the most amazing snd beautiful experiences in Jamaica. We were so glad to have Jah huide us through the falls and show us the secret cave. Will definitely return on future visits just to enjoy the water and the views.

Mayfield was our favorite falls, until we visited Benta this trip! Beautiful river/falls. Not yet over-run with tours (I think we were 1 of 2 taxis while we were there). Didn't stay for lunch, but probably will next time. We brought our own water shoes. $20 for entry, $10 for a limestone mud scrub each, and a tip for the guide (plus some cash for beer/rum punch).

Great place. Very quiet and had the falls to our self. Guides was amazing. I have some mobility problems and not a swimmer so they got me up the waterfall no problem. Carried me and swam me across the places. Pulled me up countless rocks. Very friendly but beware it’s meant to be $20 per massage, they tried to charge us $50 per massage but I didnt know it was 20 Ended up giving them $70 for both so be weary of that

My wife and 2 kids (ages 6 and 4) along with 2 friends of ours with their 2 kids (ages 5 and 3) recently went to Benta River Falls. We all had a great time. The scenery was beautiful. Thanks to our guides, Jah T and Denvoy, we were all kept safe during our walk up the waterfalls. There is even a spot to jump off a cliff or rope swing into the water. Our guides were great about making sure we all had some nice photos as well. After the walk up the waterfalls, we all had some delicious food that was cooked on site. I do recommend wearing a good pair of water shoes. If you don't have, there are some available to rent. Also for the kids, it might be good idea for them to wear floaties. My 4 year old definitely needed them. My 6 year old managed well without, but only because he's a good swimmer. Overall a great family trip both families and a nice trip outside the resort.

What a beautiful sight! Benta River Falls is a "must see" attraction. The water is cool, clear and blue, just like the sea. Our Tour Guides were knowledgeable and friendly, they took us on the trek up the falls, to the "mineral spa" and allowed time for photo ops. The grounds are well kept and great for a picnic.

Wasn't sure what to expect but had the best day ever in Jamaica in this place. Was expecting a walk up the waterfalls but the tour guides Duke and general helped us up every step of the way. WHEN i come come back to jamaica I'm going to spend a whole day here, sadly we only spent a few hours.
I've been to YS falls and other falls this place is better! Adventurous climb up the falls with plenty of entertainment and swimming stops. Splash the cash, this place is not a tourist trap. Tasted the most amazing fruit here also from the local fruit guy.
This is a reason to come back to jamaica.
The mineral scrub is great and makes you feel so smooth.
Tip well - they make your day fantastic!!!

Off the beaten track & not teeming with tourists, but on the same river as Mayfield & closer to Negril, this activity was a bit of a find. You climb the falls, stopping at 10 pools & a mineral mud bath on the way. The pace is comfortable & you don’t feel hurried along. Most people could do the climb as it’s not challenging, as long as you have the rubber shoes & are reasonably confident in water as you will get very wet!

This was a great tour. We have been to Jamaica several times before and we have absolutely enjoyed exploring and climbing waterfalls. Big difference this time around as i was traveling with my daughter and 20 month old grandson. We were very unsure as to what to expect or how far we would be able to go, wasn't sure how the little guy would be with the guides and the water but the three of us had a blast. We had two guides assigned to us because of having the little guy with us. Both guides, Rhoan, not sure of the other guys name, were absolutely wonderful with him and with us. They were both very friendly and funny and entertaining. Great tour guides. We were quite nervous at first not knowing how he would react with being carried and held by strangers but he was very well taken care of. He had no issues at all and was all smiles and loving the water very much. Much love to both guides for their patience and ability. The pictures they took for us all turned out fantastic as well. The mineral massage and bath was fun, the baby even had some too. Was a great time. Would highly recommend this place to anyone. Thanks so much for a great day out.
