We decided to go there on the recommendation of our Taxi driver. This place is spectacular. We plan on returning, next time with our bathing suits and stay much longer.

The guides Jonathan and Dane at the zip lining experience were terrific! They ensured we enjoyed our experience and it was well worth it. As a first -time zip -liner I appreciated not having to worry about when to 'break' or do anything other than sit back and enjoy the ride. It was great to have Lennox taking photos of... More

This was my favorite place we visited. Our guide at the falls was Mr. Brown, he was fantastic. I am ready to go back.

The ideal, but of course commercialized place, to spend even the whole day. Well prepared for swimming, resting, enjoying all the activities. Many, maybe too much, local guides, pampering the visitors. Impressing water falls and natural plants around.

Not as large as Dunns River Falls but very beautiful - you can take the stairs up the side of the falls and at some points you can use the rope swing to jump into the refreshing water falls! There are beautiful pools at the bottom that are so refreshing and clean!

We loved this excursion, but we were very disappointed that the guys running it, who were great otherwise, took our camera to capture our fun on video and they looked like they were doing that, but when we got home there was no video. YS Falls itself was absolutely amazing! The driver who took us there was really friendly too... More

Although a short run, the zipline over the YS falls was fun, The guy who took pictures of us while we were on the falls was much appreciated.

Hubby and i only got to spend about an hour here but enjoyed every minute. ... they have guys who will take your photos for you and they are tip based. .. they are not allowed to ask you for a tip.... you have a wooden walk way to take you all the way up that is approximately 120 meters.... More
