The top 3 attractions in Saint Elizabeth

Waterfalls in Black River
YS Falls
YS Falls Falls are in the south of Jamaica, part of Saint Elizabeth town at the mouth of the Black River. The name comes from the initials of the former owners of the farm close to the falls. They were opened to the public in 1990. In my opinion, it is the best natural attraction in Jamaica, as it is the most fun. You can do action sports, such as ride on the zip line, jump natural targets ( Tarzan type)and jump waterfalls. There are seven waterfalls in total, but what I liked best were the natural pools, one of which was also suitable for children or for people who cannot swim.
Of Touristic Interest in Black River
Black River Excursion
One of the most original tours we took was when we boarded a boat to cross the famous Black River which is situated in the south of Jamaica. You normally catch the boat from a kind of jetty next to the Jamaican town of Black River, which is exactly where the river empties into the sea. Although our guide was bent on telling us that the river was "black" but not dirty, we didn't believe and who are by far the swamps that had, in which hundreds of crocodiles swim at ease. It is really strange that the multitude of crocodiles living in this river are half trained, while being completely free, and many times our driver went close to the side of the river so that the more daring could touch the crocodiles or take lots of pictures, while the guide threw pieces of meat so that the animals were entertained.
Rivers in Black River
Black River Tavern
A curious river that flows south of Jamaica, near the town of the same name, Black River. About 500 crocodiles live here, and without a problem they will come up to the tourist boats to say hello. The striking thing about this river is the color, it's completely black as the name suggests.
