Top 10 Waterfalls in Jamaica, Jamaica

May 18, 2022 Elouise Mccaul

Is there anything better than stretching out like a cat in a warm patch of Jamaican sun? Only if you sprinkle your island vacation with a dash of adventure. Known fondly as “the land of wood and water,” Jamaica’s forests feature prime hiking and bird watching. History buffs can the heritage sites of Trelawny, while reggae and dancehall fans will love the authentic music clubs of Kingston. Montego Bay is perfect for snorkeling and shopping, while the spas of Ocho Rios can make any stresses melt away.

Nanny Falls

Reviewed By shann_345 - Jamaica, Caribbean

I enjoyed every bit of nanny falls except the part where I fell lol. It's a 20mins walk the path is a bit wet and slippery. The falls is beautiful the water is so nice my friends and I had fun walking to the falls. Make sure u walk with repellant because once it reaches evening the mosquitos are out. It's $1500 per person for the tour or u can negotiate with the tour guide. There are guys on the street who will offer to be ur tour guide.

Charming waterfalls overlook a small but beautiful beach, offering some much-needed relief from the tropical heat.

Wow ,this is an absolutely amazing place .My first recommended number one place to visit in Negril for sure .A journey through local towns and the lush scenery first .This truly is a gorgeous place .The zip line across the 7 falls and tropical gardens were superb .Its for many ages and a relaxing affair .Engage with a local life guard for a walk through the falls and swings safely who’ll take all your pictures ,Videos .Such value for $10 or more .Big clap here . The lush swimming pools and food were a real treat and experience too .Enjoy ! Ps combined with the Pelican ocean Bar close by is a must .

Reach Falls

Reviewed By 189staceym - Oxford, United States

We went to reach falls in June of 2019 and loved it so much we returned in November 2019. This place is so beautiful. It is well maintained and well staffed. When you drive up the parking lot and roads have fresh asphalt and a great bathroom and changing room. You do pay $1500 Jamaican dollars to use this spot, but it is so worth it. From the main part of the falls you are able to walk both up the river and down the river quite a bit. The scenery is breathtaking and the water is crystal clear. There are cute little fish swimming in the basin of the main falls. Beware that the ground is rocky so if you have sensitive feet be sure to wear water shoes. It will also make it easier to get up and down the falls if you want to be more adventurous. The water was much higher and the falls rushing harder in June than in November. Also the water was much cooler in November. If you are in the eastern part of Jamaica then this is definitely worth the stop.

A tropical forest with 6-7 waterfalls, a feeding koy pond, and Aviary exhibit where parrots eat feed out of your hands. Really a cool experience and not crowded at all like Dunnes River Bc no one really knows about this place. Highly recommended

Located near Negril, this adventure starts off in a small hut restaurant. The cost is around $20 per adult and $10 per child. If you don’t bring your own, you can rent water booties at an extra charge. There are also lockers which you can place and store valuables. We were a group of 12 and went on the adventure with 3 guides. The guides were knowledgeable and funny, and extremely friendly. From the restaurant you trek off into the jungle, over a bamboo bridge and then down to the river, a moderately shallow river bed with flowing crystal clear blue/green water. The hikes is all in the water and runs through a series of small waterfalls and plunge pools. The guides know the depth and width of the plunge pools and allow you to jump in to the ones that are safe. At one point there is a cavern with river mud and you get a chance to exfoliate and have some fun with the mud. There is also an underwater cave which you can swim through should you wish, and the guide either sends you through on your own if your comfortable with it, or will guide you through the cave with him. At the end of the river part, you circle up above the river and hike back through jungle and back to the restaurant where you can have a drink, eat lunch and then head off to your next destination or adventure. All in all a very fun way to spend a few hours exploring the interior and jungle in Jamaica.
