It's about 30-35 miles inland from Negril, along the A2 then up the A1 (I think). Journey time should be no more than an hour or so.

Here is one company who do organised tours from Negril. Use the 'contact us' to find out more.

From the roundabout in downtown Negril it is about 25 miles to Mayfield Falls. From the RIU ClubHotel it would be a bit over 30 miles, etc. I would guess it to be a bit under an hour to get to the falls.

I've been twice. Mileage means very little once you get off the main roads. It takes 1 1/4 hrs minimum.

How much time should we give ourselves to really enjoy the experience? Is it mostly shaded in the area we will be? I guess hot and steamy in the bush but cool in the water. How long is the hike and will our waterproof Keen sandals be good footwear?

You'll be under the jungle canopy - don't worry about sunscreen - in fact they don't want you wearing it (it gets into their water supply).

As far as foot wear goes - they had water shoes available for rent last time I was there. I would wear something that you know is going to stay on your feet. If your sandals have a strap that goes around your ankle they might be OK.

Also - if you get a chance - swim through the cave.

The Mayfield falls are BEAUTIFUL!!! Much better than Dunns River Falls!! It is more private and secluded, you and your boys will love it as my husband and I did!!! We are big kids!! The water is soo strong, you can get a message just sitting there in the water!!

Yes they do rents shoes (crocs) or you can bring your own (I suggest that)You wont regret it!!!
