The Ultimate Jamaican Weekend: Swim in a Waterfall

I’ve got three days to jet away to Jamaica with my wife. What should I do while I’m there?

A:The hills of Jamaica create the perfect conditions for the country’s famed Blue Mountain coffee. They’re also home to a wealth of hidden waterfalls, Somerset Falls, on the northeast coast near Port Antonio, being the most famous one. Less than an hour from Treasure Beach, though, are the equally as magnificent YS Falls—a seven tiered, 120-foot cascade of water. You can take a dip in the swimming holes here, go zip lining above the falls, or take a 20-minute tube float during your visit.
