One of the best waterfalls in Jamaica. Make sure you go into the underwater caves!

Local from Kingston, Jamaica

Reach Falls is the place I really wanted to visit during my first trip to Jamaica.

If you want to really experience this incredible place, it is possible to find a local guide in the near by land settlement/junction. That's how I did it. Once we found our guide, our incredible tropical jungle exploration began. The walk to the river is an incredible dive into the majestic and luxuriant nature of Jamaica.

After a short hike, we reached the first pool. My breath was taken away by the beauty of this Eden-like place.
And the best thing was: nobody else was there but us. (As the main tourist entrance takes directly to the higher fall.)

We followed our guide up the river from pool to pool, discovering each fall's secrets and taking our time to enjoy this beautiful setting.

By the time we reached the top pool and saw in the distance the “famous” higher fall, I knew that no easy entrance could top the discovering, diving, climbing, swimming in the "local" way.

History:
Reach Falls was discovered by runaway slaves from plantations in the neighboring parish of St Thomas who sought refuge in the hills of the John Crow mountains. Reach Falls is a luxurious eco attraction hidden in the Montane Forrest on the John Crow Mountain Range.

The attraction offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation, and adventure. Reach Falls is centred on an exotic waterfall cascading down a rock face into an emerald river pool. The lush greenery from the Montane Forrest and the refreshing pool beneath the cascading waterfall promises a memorable experience. Reach Falls offers the opportunity to enjoy the cascading waterfall, a picnic area, and a guided tour upstream the Driver’s River (which feeds the waterfall) featuring a visit inside our legendary underwater cave.

Local Flavor:
Reach Falls has over 23 species of ferns and it is nestled in the Montane Forrest of the John Crow Mountains which is home to a variety of birds, including the black, and yellow-billed parrots.

Famous For:
Reach Falls has been featured in Hollywood films including Tom Cruise's Cocktails and the remake of Lord of the Flies.

Don't Miss:
If visitors are lucky they may catch a glimpse of a wild pig trotting across the mountain. Reach Falls features a natural heart-shaped jacuzzi which invigorates the body with every stroke from the water rushing through the channel.

What to bring: swim wear, water shoes, towel, camera, and credit card/cash
