A Day at Mayfield Falls, Jamaica
Just an hour from Negril lies the stunning glistening pools and lush plants known as Mayfield Falls. Two flowing waterfalls combine with 21 pools to create a tropical, shady destination that needs to be on your list of places to visit on your trip to Jamaica. Mayfield Falls is the perfect day trip destination to cool off and witness the natural beauty of the island.
Typically, the waters are fairly calm and serene, making it safe and enjoyable. You don’t have to be extremely athletic to be able to navigate Mayfield Falls. You can spend the day swimming in the shade of beautiful Jamaican flora. Of the two cascades, the largest is known as “The Washing Machine.” It stands at almost ten feet tall. The most relaxing part of your journey will be soaking in the bubbling waters while getting a back massage courtesy of the waterfall.
The blue-green waters of Mayfield Falls are beyond refreshing. Every aspect of the falls generates a sense of peace and well-being as you explore this jungle-like setting. You will want to wear water shoes while splashing in the falls and climbing on the rocks to avoid slipping. If you burn easily, Mayfield Falls provides a shady retreat from the brilliant sunshine in Jamaica.
Part of the joy of visiting Mayfield Falls is that you will get to see the small villages and surrounding areas of Jamaica on your way there. Your Personal Concierge will arrange a driver right from Sunset at the Palms. While Mayfield Falls still remains an uncrowded spot, it is managed and there is a fee to enter. Guides will be able to answer questions and take pictures, and tips are appreciated. Visitors are delighted with the friendly nature of the guides.
After you are finished playing in the cool waters, you will be able to grab a bite to eat at the Jamaican cafe on site. Here, you can experience traditional cuisine at inexpensive prices. Lockers are also available to rent so you can secure your belongings and explore the falls worry-free. If you are looking for an adventure away from the resorts and beaches, Mayfield Falls offers a unique look at Jamaica’s nature in an intimate and fun setting.
