YS FALLS

Another tourist spot that is worth seeing in Jamaica is the YS Falls.

Nestled into the rich grounds of YS Estate, the YS Falls is a little bit of paradise with the beauty of the waterfalls surrounded by lush gardens and magnificent trees.  Down from the farm, tourists are transported by a tractor or jitney up to the falls, giving them the chance to see livestock including Zebu (cows) and horses that graze into the luscious greenery of the vast YS Estate.


YS is the shortest named place in Jamaica.  It's not an abbreviation or an acronym for something.  It's just YS - nothing more, nothing less.


The YS Falls is a seven-tiered waterfalls that cascade into natural pools.  Some parts are really rocky and do not allow swimming.  However, there are lifeguards on site to assist and inform guests which parts of the falls are okay for swimming, being able to swim a requirement.  At the very foot of the falls is a man-enhanced natural pool which is suitable for children and guests who cannot swim.

By the shallow part of the falls.

Water shoes are strongly recommended considering that for the most part,
the falls is rocky and slippery
You'll be surprised at what other things you can do at this nature-based attraction. You can swing from ropes hanging on trees (just like Tarzan) and then jump and dunk yourself into the water.  Ziplining is also an option, as well as river tubing.  Clean comfort rooms and change rooms are available in the area, and all efforts are being made to preserve this beautiful paradise.

Those girls behind me surely had fun swinging on the ropes.
I didn't try it.  I didn't even swim.  I thought the falls was too rocky and
slippery, but the main reason why I didn't get myself wet is that
I didn't remember to bring my change of undies/clothes!
I know, right?  Of all the things to forget... Tsk!
