YS FALLS EXCURSION
YS Falls is located in a secluded rural location approximately 2.5 hours away from Paradise Palms Jamaica Vacation Rental Montego Bay. YS falls receives relatively few visitors, allowing you to relax and enjoy the surroundings, away from the crowds. The YS Estate is located deep in the sugar growing region of St. Elizabeth Parish. Once you arrive at the estate a tractor-pulled jitney will take you to the waterfalls.
The YS Falls are 120 foot tall and cascade over seven levels. Steps have been built up the side of the falls so visitors can view the falls without getting wet. If you'd prefer a more interactive experience there are natural pools at the bottom of each level of the falls, lifeguards on the site will let you know which pools are safe to swim in. One pool features a rope swing where you can swing "tarzan-style" in to the water below. For a more relaxing swim there is also a 4 foot deep pool at the bottom of the falls which is fed by natural springs.
The YS estate dates back to the 17th century. There is a theory as to how the estate got its name, one is that the estates first two owners were named John Yates and Colonel Richard Scott, by combining the initials of their surnames they came up with the name YS Estate.
The YS Estate originally grew sugar cane and logwood a component in the manufacture of dyes for export to Europe. In 1950 the owners of the estate branched out in to the breeding of thoroughbred racehorses and cattle. In 1990 the estate opened to the public as a tourist attraction.
A recent addition to YS Falls is a canopy zipline tour which lets visitors "fly" 40 feet above the waterfall. The professional team of guides ensure that you are safely strapped in. River tubing rides are also available, allowing you to enjoy the serenity of floating down the river surrounded by the lush jungle towering overhead. There is also a gift shop, bathrooms, restaurant, changing facilities and a children's play area.
