    Awesome experience
    This is a must do when yo are in Jamaica. The falls were beautiful, the countryside to the falls was unique and everyone should experience it in Jamaica. the staff was very friendly and wanted to ensure we had the best time ever. Well done

    A grand birthday gift
    The experience started in the parking lot & front desk. It continued on the transportation to the Falls. Our zipline guides Corrie & Markeys were courteous, professional & reassuring. Our guide to the falls, Gillie, was another gem. He made swinging into the spray look & feel easy. And it was fun!!! The entire property, food, pool, falls, zipline & staff made the experience wonderfully memorable. Many thanks to the staff who conspired with me to wish Naki happy birthday. A must visit. YS Falls is an awesome experience from start to finish!!

    YS Falls and Zip Line Jamaica 🇯🇲
    Richie and Chris were fabulous on the 5 zip lines. The one over the falls was the best and Richie took video for me! Ninja took some great pictures and helped us through the falls. The food was delicious. Everything about this was incredible! You won’t be disappointed. A must do!!! 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

    Beautiful oasis
    Very beautiful place, peaceful and relaxing. My guide was great and took awesome photos of me while I was in the water and swinging on the rope. He made sure I was safe stepping on the rocks and was great at encouraging me to try the swing, he lifted me up on it so I could sit securely. The water is cool and refreshing. Wear water shoes. There are clean changing rooms. Soak in the natural spring pool for the mineral goodness. Highly recommend.

    Screaming through space
    Marcus and Chris from the zipline tour were amazing. We had 8 in our group from 9 years to 42 years and all had a great time. The waterfall was so refreshing. The lifeguards were slightly aggressive in wanting to solicit photography. The whole area was so lush and beautiful. We went early before it got too crowded.

    Beautiful and fun
    Go early! We arrived about 30 minutes after it opened and even then there were already quite a few tourists. When we left a few hours later, it was pretty crowded. We were able to enjoy the peace of the waterfalls and get spectacular photos before the crowd picked up. (For reference, we didn't go to Dunn's Falls because we wanted to avoid crowds.)

    Stunning!
    Absolutely stunning and really lovely guide that walks you around. You have to Watch your step as its slippery but they really guide you through. The guide also took my Camera and took so many pics for us which was great. A really fun trip with pools at the bottom to swim in.

    The Garden of Edan?
    YS Falls has to be the BEST place I have ever been to on planet earth! How is that for a review! I am still amazed at what a gorgeous place this was and what a wonderful experience it was. If you are in Jamaica, this is a must see. I have been to Jamaica 18 times and I am now living here with the US Peace Corps for a few years and I wish I found YS Falls way earlier.

    Natural beauty in a nut shell
    Beautiful and well maintained park. Two pools with some loungers available. One pool with cold water the other one with a nice boardwalk has warm water ( heated by solar panels). Te waterfalls themselves are beautiful and several spots to swim. There are lockers available and place to change clothes. If you want to escape the heat of the day, enjoy some natural surroundings, go and visit.

Amazing time today at YS falls! It was a quiet Friday compared to the first time we visited on a Saturday.

6 of the group did the zip wire - so much fun! And not as terrifying as you'd think! Great zip wire tour guides too, I think their names were Neil and Jarome? They definitely made it more enjoyable when I was super nervous!!

Great photos and videos from the day. Highly recommend to any Jamaica visitors and even the locals if you haven't done it already.

We will be back ♡

The staff members were the best, amazing very environmental friendly, smoking policy is in place for everyone smokers and non smokers. The water was clean and beautiful, the walk around that area was clean, the water was cold at first lol, but fun to jump into, bring water shoes. Very affordable.

The view over the falls was so nice I highly recommend, The ZipLine team were awesome, from the ladies at the desk area to the guys that made sure our safety came first, (Torey/Torrey) was the main event guy, he had jokes for days, kept us laughing, even while we wanted to cry because of the heights, his service was exceptional, they made sure we had a great time/experience. Lockers are offered just be sure to ask. Be sure to Bring small bills for tipping.

This was a surprise all around hit with our family, including 2 teens. We knew the falls would be neat but we didn't anticipate loving it so much and happily spending the entire day there. Only open 9-3. Not super busy, a few small groups came through while we were there. **WEAR WATER SHOES and bring a waterproof case for your phone/camera.

When you arrive, you pay for your ticket. Different price for local vs. tourist. You can add-on a zipline over the falls (we didn't do that). A short bus ride from the gate takes you to the falls. A guide will help you navigate the falls, show you where you can swim, take photos for you, and help you try the rope swings if you want. Obviously working for a tip but we were happy to have someone show us around and take great care of us.

Afterwards you are on your own to enjoy the falls. There are a bunch of different swimming areas including the falls, a natural spring, and a swimming pool area. You can bring a picnic or purchase food/beverages at the canteen. Plenty of sunshine or shade and plenty of picnic tables and loungers.

My family and I visited YS falls today! It was a great experience, from the escort to the main ground where the pools and the waterfalls are, to the whole water experience and Zipline.
The drive down is scenic; the ladies at the gift shop are helpful and friendly to both locals and international visitors; the surrounding is beautiful and the Zipline experience was more than I thought!
I didn't intend to go on the Zipline, but I was interested to see if it is overrated as I thought it was. Well it wasn't! Hehe. The guys, Tory and Chris were so helpful and pleasant! Listen, the Zipline sweeeeeeet mi! I was up there kicking my feet and making noise because it was funnn! The falls was so great as well! As a person who cannot swim, I went into the deep end with the help of a life vest and I felt like I was the real G. Even the changing rooms are clean and pleasant to be in. Great people are who we encountered on our visit. Thank you so much for having us!

Beautiful paradise with plenty of water activities. Lots of families enjoying a parts of the grounds. Well worth the $21US. It’s well organized and clean. You get a “falls guy” if you want. He takes you to all the fun parts of the falls. The grill had good food and drinks.

Completely worth the trip! Some of the roads getting there were a bit hard on the vehicle, but that did not take away from the awesome experience!

YS falls is a must do whether you are a local or visiting from overseas. Local rates are J$2,000 for adults and US$21 for overseas adults. They regularly post on social media to update on weather conditions because if it rains heavily, the waterfalls area cannot be used. There is Ziplining for those who enjoy that activity - however this is paid separately and doesn't come in the entrance fee.

It is located on the South Coast, Middle Quarters in the parish of St. Elizabeth. About 1hr 40mins from Negril, 1hr 40mins from Montego Bay and 2hrs from Kingston. It is opened at 9:30 with all guests leaving by 4pm. They are closed on Mondays.

You can spend from 1hr to several hours at YS depending on what you want to do. It has beautiful landscaped grounds, cascading waterfalls and fresh water pools. There are food outlets, changing rooms, souvenir shops both inside and at the entrance. Parking is available and free of charge.

After paying your entrance fee, you are transported to the falls which is a few minutes away.

You can attend with up to 10 individuals without a reservation however up to 15 will need a reservation.

I was hosting my son's birthday party so made a reservation via the manager Richard, who was very accommodating.

We arrived early and was able to get one of the canopied areas near one of the fresh water pools.

Everyone in my group had a wonderful time. We stayed until closing time and would definitely return when in Jamaica again.

Loved the fact that they are very environmentally friendly and encourages recycling and the use of environmentally friendly utensils/plates/cups.
