  • Waterfalls/Rivers in Each Parish You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

    We’re all accustomed to the usual beach flex, but what about those days where you’re not too thrilled about hot sun, sand and overcrowded venues? For those who appreciate the occasional river outing to help “clean your heart”, the trip to a refreshing, natural stream may not be as far as you may think…

    Bowden Hill/Falling Edge Falls – Kingston
    Located near the Hermitage Dam in Stony Hill, be prepared to do a bit of riding/hiking if you seek out this majestic treasure.

    Located in the lush green terrains of Cudjoe Hill, it houses a large collection of art of Jamaica’s native inhabitants, the Tainos, and shows clues to their early existence.



    Salt River – Clarendon

    A favourite among residents of the town for a cool dip. After the highway toll booth, turn left at Sandy Bay and be blessed.

    Breadnut Valley Falls – St. Elizabeth

    From its entrance you wouldn’t imagine all this hidden beauty inside. It starts as a small, tucked waterfall flowing into a natural pool but as you hike just a few yards upwards you’ll find bigger, deeper cascades.


    Mayfield Falls – Westmoreland

    A nature lover’s paradise! Two beautiful waterfalls, twenty-one natural pools, fifty-two types of ferns and lots of exotic flowers, plant species, birds, butterflies and wildlife native to Jamaica.



    Discovery Falls – Hanover

    Nestled within a secluded mountain setting on the western part of Jamaica, Discovery Falls is situated in Silver Spring, fifteen minutes outside of Negril. Palm trees, waterfalls and beautiful gardens line lagoons from natural springs nestled on the edge of the mountain with 1000 feet of zip lines through the canopy of trees is the setting created.

    Great River – St. James

    The source of the Rio Bueno river. Off to the left side the spring water comes from a rock, and off to the right side of this pool the Rio Bueno river begins its descent to the sea.



    Konoko Falls – St. Ann

    Nestled in the hills of St. Ann overlooking the resort area of Ocho Rios, just five minutes away from the town centre.



     Kwame Falls- St. Mary

    If you ‘re up for a hike, swim, and discovering some beautiful parts of Jamaica via a peaceful, scenic and not-too-difficult path, this is for you. A mostly deep pool beneath the falls, with some very warm spots, is great for a refreshing dip.



    Nanny Falls – Portland

    Located in Moore Town, the falls are about a half hour to forty-minute hike and said to be worth it. Tucked away, the secluded waterfall plunges into a deep pool which is great for swimming in.



    Cane River Falls – St. Thomas

    Tucked behind huge boulders, is a serendipitous find. It is a local favourite and where Reggae legend Bob Marley is said to have washed his dreadlocks regularly. Recommended to visit outside of drought season, as the falls and water level significantly decline during such time.

    The rotting body of Juvea Cooper was found Sunday morning buried behind a house in a shallow grave — with its throat slashed and one of an arm severed — four days after the boy was reported missing. The boy’s severed arm was found in a separate grave at the front of the house.

    His death has left the community in shock, with concerned residents questioning what could have motivated someone to carry out such a heinous act.

    “A from last Thursday him go missing and mi go mek a report to the police. All during that time I was hoping and praying that nothing had happened to my child,” Juvea’s mother, Tamieka Richards, told the

    Jamaica Observer yesterday, noting that all the while she had harboured hopes that her child — one of five — would be found alive.But her hopes would turn to grief Sunday when Juvea’s remains were found.

    Observer that three people have since been held in connection with the boy’s killing.

    “Two women and a man have been brought in for questioning into this matter,”AssistantSuperintendent of Police Sherika Service said during a tour of the area.


    But, while the police said that they were yet to establish the motive behind the killing, angry residents alleged that there could be an element of witchcraft behind the crime.


    Based on what wi hearing, is witchcraft. When dem see the situation a get bad dem bury him body,” said one resident, as others alleged that there was a noticeable increase in John Crows in the vicinity of the house behind were the body was found.

    But Juvea’s mother would only divulge that she was involved in an argument with the two female suspects before the whole incident.

    She said the argument started after her son threw a stone that broke a window at the home of the suspects. She alleged that the women demanded that the windows be replaced before the end of the day and went on to issue threats against her and her son.

    Yesterday, the the police said they would not comment on the supposed threats and allegations of witchcraft, but said they would be investigating “all angles” as they try to close the case.
