Montego Bay or Negril, Jamaica
The staff is outstanding. Despite one of us having a severe fear of heights, we had a great experience. The bus and then truck trip up is a bit bumpy and not for the faint of heart.
Every segment of the canopy tour was fun...there were 10.
It was a lot of fun and we'd love to do it again.
Bring tip and souvenir money, you will want to buy some pictures, and as everywhere in Jamaica, tips are expected and appreciated.
Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril, Jamaica
BRING A TOWEL!
The lagoon is a 1/2 hour drive east of Montego Bay
Luminous waters are incredible
The term cruise is a long stretch....think spartan fishing boat.
THIS IS NOT A CRUISE...its an opportunity to swim in an incredible natural phenomena.
The size of the complimentary rum punch was underwhelming...but we rallied after buying 2 more.
This could have been really nice, but the event is severely underdeveloped.
High points were:
The luminous water swim and our driver Michael.
One more thing....BRING A TOWEL!!!!
Montego Bay, Jamaica
The bus tour provided us an excellent view of the real Jamaica.
The Black River cruise was very interesting with fantastic nature photo opportunities. The boat is a big pontoon boat... Sit in the front!
They focus a lot on the crocodiles, but there is so much more. The cruise takes
45 minutes followed by a lunch. The lunch was not a high point but edible.
Then an hour drive to get to the falls.
The entire YS Falls experience was a total pleasant surprise. You could spend an entire day at the falls alone with kids. In addition to the very picturesque falls, there are activities such as: rope swings, wading pond, 3 separate swimming pools-each a different temperature -all surrounding a bar, a restaurant and a gift shop.
There is also ample changing area.
Swimming shoes would be the best, but if this is not something you have, tennis
shoes would be the way to go.
Our tour guide was fun, but it would have been nicer to have history and culture
as a part of the long bus ride. Bring a couple hundred extra bucks for tips
(which they do not feel shy asking for) and drinks and or gift shop.
Would visit YS Falls again but would most likely make just a day trip of the
