Mayfield Falls Jamaica || by Kesha Stewart
"Stunning scenery, very natural … just a lovely, quiet and beautiful spot”. That's how one reader described the majestic Mayfield falls here in Jamaica
And, I would dare not argue with that at all, because Mayfield Falls would almost appear as if you have stepped over into paradise. The only thing missing from this picture is you!
But seriously, if you are a nature lover, then Mayfield Falls is your ticket to seventh heaven! Picture 2 falls, 21 small cascades (the longest drop is 3m or 9.8ft tall), and 44 mineral pools, 52 varieties of ferns, tropical plants and flowers in abundance, a pleasant cacophony of birds, butterflies and indigenous wildlife.
No my friend. You are not watching National Geographic, the Discovery Channel or any such television network. It’s all live in living colour. Go ahead rent a water shoes and, take a river walk with an enlightening guided tour.
Inhale and fill your lungs with clean unspoiled air or meet the 21 masseurs - which is how I describe the cascades. They form what can be described as natural jacuzzis… pretty amazing don’t you think?
When was the last time you played Tarzan and Jane? Go ahead, jump into refreshing pools of water from the surrounding trees. Just follow the instructions of the guides to ensure your fun is also safe.
Oh speaking of safe, you can secure your personal effects in one of the lockers available on site.
This waterfall is a tributary to the Cabarita River, it is located off the beaten path, and this hidden gem spells ‘green’ in so many ways except for the waters of course which are crystal clear and inviting.
Accept its invitation to relax or if you prefer, just explore the land, scale the falls, watch and be mesmerized by the pellucid waters as it dances down the rocks. It’s up to you. I guarantee that your senses will be soothed by the mystic rhythms created by nature just for you.
Don’t you think that you deserve to be immersed in this beautiful, tranquil surroundings? Mayfield Falls is just what the doctor ordered if you want to escape the things normal tourists do. It will not disappoint you.
