My friends and I had a wonderful time zip lining and checking out the beautiful YS Falls. We had 13 of us and we all felt safe and had a blast! I really enjoyed my guide, Nesta, who told me alot about the area and about zip lining. I will tell all my friends and family to come visit the falls and try all the exciting options. There is fun for all to be had!!

“YS Falls Is a Must See.”
Reviewed 28 April 2011

We hired a driver for the day to drive us around Negril and show us some of the beautiful country. He suggested YS Falls, Pelican Bar, Black River Safari Tour, and Rick's Cafe'.
YS Falls is a privately owned estate of 2600 acres. When you arrive you will be able to go into a nice little gift shop, they have a fully stocks wet bar. Not as many options as your resort but enough to offer; along with a restaurant there. We all tried several dishes, Some of the favorites where (Bammy, Curried Goat, and of course their version of the Jerk Chicken.)
When you are ready to head up to the falls, you ride behind a large tractor on a roof covered trailer. Not as bad as it sounds. it has bench seats across it and is covered.
When you get to the base of the falls, you are welcomed by another gift shop that has ore to choose from. They do not hassle you for money. Very Very pleasant. They also have two swimming pools for you to swim in or lounge around if you choose to stay for most of the day.
They offer zip-line tours of 5 lines, one of which takes you straight over the falls. Very Cool!
Once you get their it is HIGHLY recommended you have one of the workers take you up through the YS Falls. They will take you pictures and show you where you can go and not go. They will also help you do the rope swings at the top into the pools of the water falls.
It is absolutely beautiful. We have been to Dunes River Falls and this one is not artificial in anyway. We had a blast, all of the workers where fantastic.....
It is a must see!!!
If you want a great, funny, trust worthy, driver feel free to send me a message and I will forward you all of his contact info. We saw some great things traveling the island on the way here...

“Great day trip from Negril”
Reviewed 12 March 2011

YS falls was beautiful. Staff were pleasant. Jumping from rope into water is a lot of fun. I also did the Zip Line (my first time). There were 5 lines. One ran straight over the strengh of water falls. Beautiful view. Last line is very "steep" and i screamed all the way. lol. We hired a staff from our hotel to take us for the day. This was much cheaper than going with a tour company and just as good. Giftshop is overpriced. Food is not great. Took about 2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get back to our hotel in Negril.

“Gorgeous but crowded”
Reviewed 12 January 2011

We took a little day trip and stopped off at the Falls. They were absolutely gorgeous but it was incredibly crowded that it took away from the beauty. It's definitely a tourist attraction so be prepared to deal with a lot of people.
