The Basics

YS Estate is a working cattle farm where you can catch a glimpse of Jamaican countryside farm life as you make you way to YS Falls, which are on the property. Tours involve a jitney tractor ride to YS Falls; along the way you’ll encounter natural swimming pools adjacent to the cascading falls, as well as the surrounding tropical jungle, which provides opportunities for ziplining. There are wooden walkways along the riverbank for those who would rather walk than zipline, and the property provides other activities such as river tubing down the small rapids and a turn on a rope swing.

Tours depart frequently for YS Falls and the south coast of Jamaica from Falmouth, Montego Bay, and Negril. Many tours combine a YS Falls visit with other nearby highlights such as a Black River safari or sightseeing cruise, and a visit to the famous Appleton Rum Estate.

YS Falls plus Black River Safari from Montego Bay and Grand Palladium
Our driver with SNL Jamaican Tours was Ricardo. He was awesome!! We were very impressed with his driving skills and his knowledge of Jamaica. We loved hearing him speak of the country and the Jamaican people. Our guide at the Falls was Kimarley and he was awesome helping us over the rocks. He held our phones and took pics and videos of us, FOR FREE! He was the best guide! We played on the Tarzan Rope and the gliding rope. He took a lot of good pics! It was very safe and lots of fun! The Falls were beautiful!!! The lunch at the restaurant was a buffet of Jamaican chicken, beef stew, rice with beans, and a roll with yummy punch. It was delicious! They also sell sodas including “Ginger Beer” which is a delicious soda! Try it!!! The Safari was very informative and our guide was Shane, I believe. He showed us some huge crocs, lots of birds, and told us about the ecosystem of the mangroves. I would do both tours again! I would book with SNL Jamaican Tours Company for any future tours! Thanks to everyone for the fun day!!!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Be sure to bring a bathing suit and water shoes, must-haves for safely exploring the falls and for swimming in the natural pools.

  • Some pools are deep enough to require decent swimming ability, but some are shallow enough for children to wade in.

  • A kiosk at the falls sells light snacks and hot dogs.

Stud and Cattle Farm at YS Estate

In addition to hosting the spectacular falls, YS Estate is home to a stud farm breeding thoroughbred horses for racing on Jamaica’s only racetrack. The farm also raises Jamaica Red Poll Cattle, a pedigreed herd farmed for beef. Animal-loving visitors can view and learn about both herds on a YS Estate visit.
