I had a wonderful day at YS Falls in Jamaica a couple of days ago. I had gone there before with a group from the church but this time it was just me and hubby. We had a wonderful day. This secluded waterfall is on a working cattle farm.

Swimming

There is no shortage of lifeguards. We saw three pools, one that was ice-cold but your body will soon get used to it. Also, this pool is great for grandma, grandpa, and the children; just about anybody can use this pool. Then there are 2 that are side by side; one for swimmers only and the other for anyone. A life jacket is provided but it is not allowed in the pool for swimmers.

Garden and park

YS Falls, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica is an excellent place to have a picnic, I and hubby took a big blanket and spread it out on the lush grass and we did relax. The place is big enough that you can find a little private spot for yourself. Also, we saw someone having a birthday party, while we were there. For instance, a saw an elderly couple just relaxing and reading their newspaper.

    I’ll actually be in Jamaica this summer. Unfortunately, I’ll be too far away from YS Falls. May have to plan for that next time I go. But nonetheless, it’s good to know there are so many great things to see and do in Jamaica and I’m even more excited to visit there now!
