Itinerary
Stop At:  
YS Falls
As you set off from your hotel heading towards the south coast, you might be asking yourself - What is the drive going to be like going to the south coast of Jamaica? Well, it finally hits home as you start making your way up the mountains and through small farming villages where nearly all the locals live off the lands - very hardworking, humble, friendly villagers who you will wave at you as you go by. Don't forget to take your cameras! You will need them for your vacation photos, since you will be traveling through the hills and valleys - making your way through farming areas and little old towns that were developed during the plantation era mostly by the British. The ride to the south coast is approx.. 1hr 30mins. Ask your tour guide about the myriad of local fruits and peppered shrimp when you get in the town of Middle Quarters, otherwise known as "shrimp Country". After an entertaining ride and an amazing local experience, you arrive at YS Falls, get checked in and board the tractor jitney that will take you on a 10 minutes ride through the 2,600 acres property and up to the falls. The YS Falls property is home to horses, cattle, massive guango and mango trees. You will be in awe as you make your way through the lush, green vegetation with crystal clear water streaming through the forest. At the YS Falls you can soak yourself in the 100% natural pools and cascades, swing on Tarzan Ropes, swim, etc. It is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway or if you wish to break away from the hustle and bustle of the busy resort property. Please take advantage of the Zipline Canopy or Tubing while you are there (Zipline & tubing comes at an additional cost). Total time at the YS Falls will be approx.. 1hr 30mins after which time you will head down to Black River for a stop at the Riverside Dock where you will have local lunch buffet. Lunch includes steamed vegetables, rice & beans, fried chicken/stewed beef.

Stop At:  
Black River
What a memorable day it has been so far! Now you are at the Riverside Dock where you will have lunch. After lunch, you will meet with your Safari Tour Guide who is very knowledgeable & well prepared - eager to take you on a wild journey up the Black River. There you will get all the information on the Black River and its wildlife, including endemic bird species, crabs, rare or endemic plants such as water lilies and others - North American crocodiles and Tarpans also occupy their space in the Black River. Get your cameras ready as your Safari Captain call the crocodiles, feed them chicken meat and pet them - no, your tour guide is not crazy but they have an excellent relationship with their friends from the Safari and are ready to share their experience and expertise with you! You might even see local fishers snorkeling the river collecting their crab traps or spear fishing right there among the crocodiles and other wildlife - and no, they're not crazy! It's just a way of life! After an amazing experience at YS Falls and Black River Safari it will be time to head back to your hotel/pickup point.

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!!!
