We had a lovely day here ! It's definitely worth a visit . After a hair raising climb in the water with a fab guide we got some amazing photos !
Then to top it a lovely beer and a chill in the gorgeous pool surrounded by beautiful greenery , heaven !

“A beautiful spot not far from Whitehouse”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It was a lovely way to spend a day off the resort. The drive to the falls was very comfortable thru the rolling countryside.The falls were absolutely stunning. We walked up beside the falls and peacefully watched the water tumble gently down over the rocks.

I am so happy we went here instead of Dunn Falls. I heard that at Dunn Falls you are pretty much hiking in water the whole time which would not have worked since in our group we had 1 nonswimmer. YS Falls was beautiful. There are several pools you can go in if you don't want to get into the waterfalls. There is a shop there with some snacks and trinkets. There are several bathrooms and changing areas but there can be lines during busy times. A beautiful place to visit

“Great time at YS Falls!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We traveled here from our resort in Montego Bay via Clive's Transport Service and we had a wonderful time! The ride was long from Montego Bay but once we arrived, it was well worth the wait! We went zip-lining while we were there and the staff that managed it was wonderful and helpful. The falls were beautiful! The guides there helped us find the right spots to climb and showed us areas that we could jump into the pools of water. YS Falls is a lot less crowded than Dunn's River. All in all a great time and a must see if you are visiting Jamaica.

“You'll Thank Me Later!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Just a bit north of Black River you'll start getting into the mountains and the views are spectacular! The lush valleys really do have some wonderful views. This series of waterfalls provides the opportunity to zip line which takes about 45-60 minutes. The staff have great personalities and not only keep everyone safe but also keeping you laughing! You will enjoy the zip line even if-like me- you have never done it before. If you get there early (9am) there is little to no wait- a big bonus! The falls are beautiful and the area is air conditioned by the cool water. You can swim in the natural pools and jump off a rope swing. There are very nicely landscaped areas to eat or just relax. You can choose covered picnic areas or the mown grassy areas. Bring your camera because there is a great picture everywhere you look....
Have fun... you can thank me later!
PS. Plan on spending 3 hours at the Falls and at least an hour driving each way. (the drive is part of the fun-it's quite different from anything stateside)
