About
Once a plantation for indigo and spice, Somerset Falls is a hidden gem in Port Antonio with waterfalls, rivers, a man-made swimming pool, and even a slide. The boat ride—included in the admission fee—will take you to the main waterfall and through to a breathtaking gorge where you can marvel at the 32-foot Hidden Falls. The best time to visit is during the rainy season from June to November when the falls are the most impressive. To see more of the area, consider booking a private tour that also includes Frenchman Cove and the Blue Lagoon. – Tripadvisor

We looked online and entry fee said $1500JA, however when we got there that rate was for locals and we were charged $25US per person. There was no where which stated this price online or when you got to the park.
Half of my family went on the dry boat ride which didn’t last anymore than 3 minutes. A boat ride round the corner to see the falls and back again. I went on the wet boat ride which you got to jump into the water and swim, which was slightly better, but again didn’t last much longer. I thought you might be able to swim in the water however there wasn’t any life guards on duty.
There’s a pool and water slide, however the pool water didn’t look clean. Facilities are very dated, and the animals they do have are kept in very small cages. There’s no sun loungers to relax around the pool, only hard benches. We lasted at the park for around 1.5 hours which was a stretch!
It was completely over priced and not worth the money at all. I will not be returning.

Loved this little piece of paradise! We fit 15 people on the boat and was able to go behind the fall (drought in this area, so less water) and jump from the rocks and swim underneath. It was so much fun!

We arrived and paid $1000 jmd for a group. We we parked and changed into our swim suits in the bathroom on the property.

The grounds were clean and well kept. We saw the pool being cleaned. We walked through a very beautiful picturesque walk and waited for the boatman.

The boat was cleaned and our life jacket sanitized. We were helped into our small boat and slowly guided into the falls. It ride was VERY beautiful.

The boatman allowed us to come off the boat and sit under/in the falls. The experience was lovely. We took several pictures. After we were brought back to the shore. The boat ride was short but lovely. We tipped the boat driver $10US for our group of 6.

We purchase food from a local off site resturant and ate on somerset fall area by the pool. We went in the pool and played on their grassed area. Lovely day for a group.

It's not even fair, but Jamaica barely needs to try. This is a naturally beautiful place. We chose the wet trip and were not disappointed at all. The water, the limestone rocks, the boat ride - everything was perfect. I would definitely do this again.

Drove by yesterday - sad & disappointed to learn that Somerset Falls is permanently closed. We've visited numerous times in the past & wanted to introduce my nephew but, unfortunately, it was deserted and we were informed it had closed recently. Sad to see another natural beauty closed.

Very disappointed that they were closed for renovations and without any signage or indication on the website. All there was, was a poorly visible cartridge paper on the wall with no indication as to when it will re-open.

We visited the first week of January 2005 and we were the only family there for the first 2 hours. After a very short tour they let you swim to the falls, but they don't tell you to go through the falls to the cave. The mosquitoes were fierce but the smoke pot with burning rosemary made the experience even more magical.
A great experience, but would it kill them to sell a postcard?

After tasty lunch bite at Boston Bay Jerk center on a sunny Sunday- the end of July, we asked our taxi driver to recommend something special for us to do for a few hours time while visiting Port Antonio. He took us to Somerset Falls. We found it to be exhilerating and refreshing- literally! What a beautiful place~ The falls and the water are cool, and a strange bluish green. The property is covered in exotic, lush vegetation. We board a small rubber raft which took us down a small way to a cave that was covered with falling water where we got off to swim and dive into the deep and chilling pool. Great experience! The staff was knowledgeble, friendly and eager to please. There is a small restaurant and beach bar- where they are optimistic that with more guests and exposure they will soon be expanding to larger menus and perhaps a Sunday brunch or private dinner parties beside the falls....
sounds wonderful! GO! Check it out!

I had planned a day trip from Ochi to Port Antonio.Somerset Falls was on the top of my list to visit. The huge sign guiding you to Somerset Falls is clearly visible.Once we drove in, it was a disappointment to see a closed sign. The Falls will be closed until further notice. Hoping no on will make the same mistake as I did.

I really enjoyed this trip with my partner and my family. The falls is a bit up steam therefore you go on a paddle boat. There is a small fee of $700 JMD which is approximately 5 USD.

It is a very lovely place to visit however it could do with some refurbishment as they had an area you can picnic and use pool facilities however they were not up and running.

We spent about 4 hours there as we also went rafting on bamboo rafts for free across the road from somerset falls where you will get to view animals and plants that are now extinct however there's loads of mosquitos and they are HUGE therefore it is advisable to have some sort of mosquito spray with you that you can apply after you finish having fun under the falls.

I cannot wait to visit Jamaica and go here again
