The Reach River Falls
The Reach River Falls Manchioneal Reviews
Tom Cruise & Elisabeth Shue made this popular Apr 25, 2011
One of the many Jamaican wonders that I had to visit was the well known Reach River Falls situated in the Blue Mountains not far from the coastal village of Manchioneal.
The road up to the fall is really wonderful too; you drive through small banana plantations and area that are clean jungle. Whenever you have a view between the trees of the mountain you feel like stopping just to rest the eyes on this beautiful nature.
The road up there is narrow and not indicated that well so I had to ask my way several times when the road split in two. There were not more space than you had to back up sometimes when you met someone going the other way. Finally at the destination we found ourselves to be some of the last visitors that day which also meant that there were not that many people around the fall.
The whole area has since 2006 been a part of Jamaican tourist boards control which makes it nice; there is no litter and things are organized and so on.
The fall itself is really nice; especially with all the jungle surrounding it, but I must admit if Elisabeth Shue still had been in the water as she was in Cocktail I might had been persuaded to jump in and stay there for some time.
The fall was nice and worth the money and they had done a good job in making the area look nice. They closed the site around 5 pm and the drive back from the falls with the sharp sun over the mountain made also this worth some stops.
