The Konoko Falls and Park which was, previously named, Mahoe Falls and Coyaba Park were revamped a few years ago into what it is today.

The Falls

The falls begin at the Onikhan Deck where you can climb to the top, which leads to a mini-zoo and botanical gardens. On the journey to the top, you can stop at the jacuzzi-sized natural swimming pools on the way. Appropriate footwear is required for your picturesque climb.

The Konoko falls is not as big as nearby Dunnโ€™s River falls but it is not as crowded either so it is a win-win.

Should you feel the need to quit your hike and take the stairs instead, there is an exit point along the way up the falls.

Botanical Gardens and Mini Zoo

While you can access this section of Konoko Falls and Park from the falls, you are not required to climb it. If you would prefer to skip the climb, you can just head directly to the top of the property where the main buildings are for the zoo and garden experience.

This is always a big hit with children, but adults can also appreciate the birds, snakes, crocodiles and other animals just the same. The botanical gardens consist of many plants including ones native to Jamaica, which your tour guide will happily point out.

The little streams which feed the falls below run through the gardens and can be seen and heard on occasion.

The Museum

This one is a little more catered to adults and older children, but it gives a brief look into Jamaican history since the arrival of the Tainos. There are artifacts, maps and pictures which are visual aids in the information the tour guide gives.


There is a restaurant and bar on the property which serves Jamaican food. No food and drink are allowed on the property, so you must purchase food and drink from their eatery.

Konoko Falls Lookout Point

To conclude the day, you can take a walk to the lookout which is the perfect vantage point to see the sea and the rainforest below. And while there are many picturesque locations you would have seen by this point for the perfect picture, you could have a final picture right under the imposing Konoko Falls and Park Sign.

Known locally as the Ysassis Lookout Point, it is thought to be the hideout for the last Spanish governor of Jamaica, Cristรณbal Arnaldo Isassi after the English invasion. He had two failed attempts to retake the island in 1657 and 1658 before he fled to Cuba.

Can I have my birthday party at Konoko Falls?

Yes, you can! The Konoko Falls and Park is ideal for birthday parties, company fun days, reunions, church and community groups, photo shoots, galas and other special events.

How much does it cost to go to Konoko Falls?

The current cost to enter Konoko Falls is USD 20 for adults and USD 10 for children who are non-residents. Residents pay JMD 2000 and JMD 1000 respectively. Children under 3 years old get in for free. There might be discounts for large groups if you call ahead.

How tall is Konoko falls?

The Konoko waterfall is 600 feet tall. It was once known as Mahoe falls before the name was changed to Konoko.

Do you need to book in advance to visit Konoko Falls & Park?

It is advised that you make your reservation ahead of time.
We recommend booking Konoko Falls & Park tours ahead of time to secure your spot. If you book with Tripadvisor, you can cancel up to 24 hours before your tour starts for a full refund.

While you can have a guided tour, it is more common for groups of family and friends to explore on their own and at their own pace. This way there is no need to rush, you can spend as much or as little time at each spot.
