These spectacular falls, hugged by a canopy of rainforest, are Jamaica’s most visited attraction. Despite being highly commercialized and often crowded’ climbing and wading your way up through the clear waters that tumble 183m (600ft) down the mountainside in majestic tiers, is still one of the most memorable experiences in Jamaica. Sure-footed guides are on hand to lead the way and if you wear sneakers or the jelly shoes available to hire. You’ll find a craft market and food stalls at the end of the climb and pleasant sandy beach at the base of the falls.
An essential trip for lovers. Simply sit back and relax on a 9m (30 ft) bamboo raft made for two for a gentle ride down the river. A raft captain, Jamaica’s version of a Venetian gondolier , uses a bamboo pole to glide your craft through florid rainforest. The meandering journey covers 5.6km (3miles) and takes around 90 minutes. Set off, with rum punch in hand, to the accompaniment of a traditional mento. Just 5km (3 miles) from Falmouth town take a lazy cruise downriver through a rich sea of thick rainforest.
