We hit this place first thing in the morning about 8:30 am - there was no line up at all. I would recommend this as your first stop of the day.
We went with Kemar Smile of Inside Tours Jamaica. A few tips he gave us in advance do not take anything from anyone - there is nothing free in Jamaica and when leaving the Falls to parking lot do not stop at the vendors just keep walking.
We only went here to climb up the Falls. It looks like a nice park - it only cost $20 for adults and that gave you admission for the day.
We went right down to the Falls entrance where we were hooked up with a Guide and Videographer. They took our group down to the ocean front where we started our venture up the Falls.
He had the whole group hold hands to go up - which we found awkward and a bit unstable. Our family bailed out on the line concept pretty quickly and just helped ourselves. Our kids 11 and 8 were able to navigate up on their own. At points in time it was a bit slow because we had people who were not quite as mobile as us. Additionally they would stop the whole group to take pictures. A couple of families broke off and started to venture up on their own which you can do if you like. We stayed with the group but kind of started to do our own thing.
It took us about an hour to do the climb up. We really enjoyed it.
I would say though if you are not in decent physical shape or have mobility or balance issues this is NOT the place for you. The rocks can be slippery and there are spots where you need to be able to pull yourself up. If you have limited upper body strength you will have a tough time here.
Our 8 year old son is on the small side and I would say kids much smaller or younger might have a tough go - or as parents you will spend all your time lifting/carrying/pulling them up - so maybe not a fun family time. Our son is quite strong and athletic so despite being small he was able to get himself up.
Once done we gave the guide a tip - he did a good job. We then exited the park through the vendor village - we just said no thanks to those who asked - plus having Kemar with us - I think they knew we were there to do the Falls only.
A good fun time for us. It took about 90 minutes. We did not purchase the picture cd which cost $40.
