Experience many of the area’s natural and historical highlights, with time left over to immerse yourself in local culture and take an excursion or two. Here’s how to get the most out of three days in this Jamaican city.
Tues-Sun: 9am - 3:30pm
YS Falls, Cornwall, Jamaica
YS Estate is a working cattle farm where you can catch a glimpse of Jamaican countryside farm life as you make you way to YS Falls, which are on the property. Tours involve a jitney tractor ride to YS Falls; along the way you’ll encounter natural swimming pools adjacent to the cascading falls, as well as the surrounding tropical jungle, which provides opportunities for ziplining. There are wooden walkways along the riverbank for those who would rather walk than zipline, and the property provides other activities such as river tubing down the small rapids and a turn on a rope swing.
Tours depart frequently for YS Falls and the south coast of Jamaica from Falmouth, Montego Bay, and Negril. Many tours combine a YS Falls visit with other nearby highlights such as a Black River safari or sightseeing cruise, and a visit to the famous Appleton Rum Estate.

YS Falls and Appleton Estate Private Rum Tour
The ride from Montego Bay was longer than I expected, almost 3 hours but the ride was comfortable. I felt a little rushed at YS falls but it was still great being in the waterfall and jumping off the rope swing.

Appleton Estate Rum with YS Falls and Black River Private Tour
Great places to visit - definitely worth the money doing this tour, as there was a lot of driving so probably wouldn't have managed to go to all of these places on our own. Let go of the rope and jump off at YS Falls! It's thrilling be very careful of the sharp rocks you fall onto/walk on though!. Tour guide a bit miserable, but would do this tour again.
Very enjoyable day! Long drive, but...

Round-Trip Shuttle Transportation to Appleton Estate Rum & YS Falls
Very enjoyable day! Long drive, but time at each place was not rushed. Omar, our driver, was very friendly and accommodating. YS Falls are beautiful...much more quiet and private than other more widely known falls.
Pelican bar was so cool

Full-day Tour to Appleton Estate and YS Falls from Montego Bay
This was a long drive but a great tour! Georgia, our guide, was awesome! She was very knowledgeable and patient with us! We enjoyed talking with her for the travel there and back! She is a great driver because the road taken was tricky! She made the experience very delightful! On my next trip I will definitely take another tour as long as she is our guide! If you want to know the great history of Jamaica and have good company...please ask for Georgia!!

PREMIUM - YS Falls Tour from Negril - Entrance fees + Lunch Included
This is a nice trip. Our driver did a nice job telling us about the areas we drove through. You will need shoes if you do zip lining also water shoes are nice for walking in the falls. You should rent a locker to secure your valuables while your enjoying yourselves.
Things to Know Before You Go
Be sure to bring a bathing suit and water shoes, must-haves for safely exploring the falls and for swimming in the natural pools.
Some pools are deep enough to require decent swimming ability, but some are shallow enough for children to wade in.
A kiosk at the falls sells light snacks and hot dogs.
How to Get There
YS Falls is located 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Montego Bay and 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of Negril. Most visitors arrive at YS Falls on guided tour with transportation included from Negril, Montego Bay, or Ocho Rios.
When to Get There
YS Falls and the YS Estate are open from 9:30am to 3:30pm Tuesday through Sunday; they are closed on Mondays, and on local and public holidays. Getting there first thing in the morning means less crowds. Jamaica’s rainy season is in October through November; visiting during that time may mean slippery rocks and strong currents.
Stud and Cattle Farm at YS Estate
In addition to hosting the spectacular falls, YS Estate is home to a stud farm breeding thoroughbred horses for racing on Jamaica’s only racetrack. The farm also raises Jamaica Red Poll Cattle, a pedigreed herd farmed for beef. Animal-loving visitors can view and learn about both herds on a YS Estate visit.
