Dunns River Falls | Best Waterfalls In Jamaica By Wellesley Gayle Just so you know, Jamaica was not named, the Land Of Wood And Water by coincidence, our rivers and waterfalls are some of our best attractions!
You might have heard me trumpeting just how amazing Dunn's River Falls is right?
In fact, I recently shared some captivating photos (and a video) from one of my recent trips there here as well.
But I'd be unfair to you if I didn't share some of the other magnificent waterfalls here in Jamaica with you.

Other Attractions At Jamaica's Waterfalls
For many of them, the waterfalls are just one of many attractions to enjoy.
Some of the other interests include:
River walks Hiking experiences Nature walks Zip lining (more established) Fees & Entrance Costs
From my research, the entrance cost ranges between 15 and 25USD for a visitor to the island (usually half priced for children 3-12).
For Jamaican locals, with ID, it is between 500 and 1500 JMD per adult (kids between 3-12 pays between 300 and 500JMD). However, I suggest you reach out to each attraction directly to confirm rates, including special group rates.
Not also that some of these 'off the beaten path' waterfalls are just that, and so are not well regulated.
The Tacky Falls, for example, does not have an entrance fee but, according to Bianca Younis, one of the guides there, the local guide appreciates a tip from the visitor. Pictures From Falls In Jamaica

Turtle River Falls here. I Should Tell You!
Believe it or not, but some of these amazing attractions were first brought to my attention by my guests! One of such is the Reggae Falls during a photo contest. Keep an eye on The Little Dunn's River. It is just up and across the road from the big dunns river, but it is favorite for many, both locals and visitors alike. The NonSuch waterfall in Portland is said to be one of the tallest, if not the tallest in the island! Although many of them have proper guest facilities (changing rooms, refreshments etc) some doesn't are not as they are not formalized or regulated. My recommendation: For great facilities stick with the bigger, most popular ones eg. Dunns' River, YS, Turtle River, Benta Falls etc) Otherwise be sure to go with a qualified tour guide who knows the way and the terrain. The Most Famous Falls?
