The first thing I thought when I got to the actual site was, “Wow, the pictures weren’t lying.”
I can applaud this destination for their attention to details, from their manicured lawns to their wooden architectures.
Destination: YS Falls
Location: St Elizabeth, Jamaica
The parking area for YS is actually about 10 minutes away from where all the fun is. It is accompanied by a section for purchasing food and the receptionist area in a souvenir shop. Once you have your armband on you’ll be shuttled to the site where the waterfalls and pools are. How we got there is a little exciting. Why? Because we were shuttled on one of these..
Their jitneys, tractor-pulled or not, are pretty much vehicles with open seated areas. Due to the property’s history of exporting logwood to Europe, jitney passengers are able to view stretches of flora being grazed on by horses and pedigree cattle. The waterfalls of YS aren’t only used by patrons for bathing and group climbs but also for the brave at heart to swing on hanging ropes before plunging into river below. Additionally, the collaboration with Chukka gives you the opportunity to enjoy a 40ft high Canopy Ride, starting from the top of the waterfall. You’ll definitely view and experience the property from a different perspective!
The natural mineral pools!
Other than the water temperature being much warmer than that of the falls (promise I’m not as nasty as this sounds) the pools were aesthetically pleasing. Just, flawless. With nature as a backdrop and being surrounded by wooden lounge chairs, both pools have an eco-friendly and modern mixture that gives that awesome vacation feeling.
