Weekend Escape: Cane River and its glorious waterfall | News
Streaks of sunlight dance on your skin as you approach a low-rising riverbed. The sonance of chirping birds and calm, soothing waters fills the crisp air, and time seems to stand still. Inhale. You are at Cane River Falls in Bull Bay, St Andrew.
On entering the premises, one could not guess the awesome wonder the quiet community possesses. Getting to the river, once you arrive at the entrance to the property, is a seven-minute adventure on its own. A cool cave awaited us, and the sound of flowing water could be heard as cool breeze ushered us along. Layers of steep, tedious staircases followed, and it was almost like being transported to a medieval jungle or animal kingdom (minus the animals). After many careful steps and twists and turns, there it was, Cane River and its glorious waterfall.
Models were busy preparing for a photoshoot as we headed over to the plunge pool by the waterfall, which oozed clear, cold water. Ashley-Gaye Bridgemohan and her three friends were among several visitors basking in the delight of this little piece of heaven off the main road. Also present was Gavin Lumsden, a British national, who decided to celebrate his birthday by taking a dip in the water’s splendour.
“I’m actually on my way to St Ann for Rebel Salute, but my family is from St Thomas, so I decided to stop by all the rivers en route to the festival,” Lumsden toldTHEWEEKEND STAR when we visited last week.
“I came here by default as I was actually looking for Reggae Falls, but I really prefer Cane River – it’s more natural and way better.”
The only disappointment was the noticeably low water levels due to scarce rainfall.
Marlon Flue, community resident and maintenance worker at the attraction, said the current is also low as residents use the river’s water supply for domestic purposes. He, however, uses the river for another purpose.
“I have a spiritual connection here. I come here to read my Bible and pray and hold a meditation sometimes,” Flue said. “There’s no disturbance, there’s no violence in the area, and you can relax to the sounds of the water.”
Admission fee of $200 for adults and $100 for children; swimwear, towel, change of clothing, food.
Plunge pool with glorious waterfall, cool caves.
Low water current in river.
Cane River is located less than thirty minutes from downtown Kingston. After approximately 15 minutes of driving from the Michael Manley Highway, you will get to Bull Bay. The road that leads to Cane River is opposite the Nine Miles Police Station. Once you turn on to that road, all you have to do is follow the signs. You can’t miss it.

Good if your young but if you have knee problems there is about 350 stairs up and down uneven and wet and slippery at times. If you drive past the first entrance to the second entrance called ESCAPE you pay $200 Jamaican dollars only 10 stairs. Plus it has a natural pool to swim in if the river is too heavy.
29 Mayo 2020 15:14
The best vacation place in Jamaica. Trust me when you get there you’ll know what I’m talking about
17 Enero de 2020 0:14
When u want to chill in a clean clear river it’s a must stop. Be prepared to climb steep and numerous steps. But reasonably priced and even has maintained washrooms
18 Diciembre de 2019 19:31
Cane River Falls is one of Jamaica natural mineral spring that can heal most chronic pain.
22 Septiembre 2019 10:14
Need new owner and money to upgrade, need schedule land events to keep guest coming to bring back once use to be a lovely fall.
The water fall still remains great. Its along way down thou
21 Septiembre 2019 0:38
Steps are terrible. Water is cool and nice. May experience a younger crowd splashing carelessly. Also may get your toes nibbled on by fishes in the water
21 Julio de 2019 10:13
It was crowded when we went but overall seems like a chill spot to hang out with a small group of friends.
15 Julio de 2019 0:50
Its a quiet secluded place depending on what time you go. The water is very nice and you get to interact with wild life
10 Julio de 2019 0:31
It’s small but its beautiful.it was too crowded when I went there so I couldn’t enjoy the water.it’s really an intimate space
16 Junio ??2019 2019 0:42
Personally theres too much climb up n down to reach (stairs) but overall a great experience
29 Mayo 2019 12:13
It was great, I went outside of peak visiting hours to avoid the crowd. Only draw back was little garbage here and there.
25 Mayo 2019 12:01
I love waterfalls and this was an easy beautiful location to get to to enjoy the cool refreshing spring water and stand under the falls. Great place for a day trip for the family, a date, or for the backpacker to explore. If I recall correctly it was $200 JMD to get in.
21 Mayo 2019 23:33
The only con is that the locals have no pride in preserving the environment. They aimlessly litter the water.
13 Mayo 2019 23:50
There was a lot of trash and the scent of urine everywhere. There is not much water in the river and I wouldn’t recommend swimming there. Finally, the road to get there is pretty bad at some points.
28 Abril de 2019 17:50
This is probably the best waterfall in St. Andrew, as It’s easy to find, very affordable to get in ($200) and fairly clean. Most importantly its lots of fun, and the water is crystal clear and about chest height so you don’t really need to know how to swim. And the area is very picturesque, if you’re into that.
The only thing is, if you’re disabled or just can’t do stairs here’s not for you.
21 Abril de 2019 11:02
Great atmosphere and place to just relax and enjoy nature. The place was well kept.
The walk down to the falls will be well worth it – a good work out if you ask me! Having enjoyed the falls it’s walk back to the top that will test your stamina – so get ready for it.
The river has nice areas where you and your friends can enjoy a little privacy to have some fun and alone time.
This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle to just relax.
21 Marzo 2019 10:03
I love rivers. The best place to be. I’ll always choose river over beach everyday. Best days to go is during the weekdays. If you don’t want the crowd.
27 Febrero 2019 3:16
This is a good location for swimming and a getaway. It’s small though with very water flowing through. The fall works but it’s just a small area for swimming below it. As a result it gets crowded very quickly. There is long stairs climb up and down to get to and leave from the fall – the main attraction point. Ample parking is available with an entrance fee of $200.
12 Febrero 2019 0:41
Nice river system but level was low on the day wewent. Several small pools to wade or jump in. Nice waterfalls. Bar was closed though.maybe due to the day of the week that went on.

8 New Rums to Try Today
Rum-lovers will be the first to point out that not all rums are alike. In fact, of all the spirits categories, rum may represent the broadest spectrum, from clear to inky dark “black rums,” and from fruity and funky to caramel-rich. Much of that has to do with the spirit’s vast range of regions and production methods, although sweeteners, caramel color, and other permitted additives play a role too. It’s eye-opening to realize that all of these bottlings start with simple sugarcane.
This versatile canvas lends itself to the imagination of rum producers. Consider, for example, a Jamaican gold rum intended to celebrate the release of the latest James Bond film, and a trio of rums that spotlight the effect of resting the spirit in casks that previously held fortified wines. The range also extends from affordable-luxury bottles that emphasize the effect of creative blending, such as Chairman’s Legacy and Appleton Black River, to full-on luxury “reserve” bottlings from SelvaRey and Ten to One. And as aged rums go darker and richer and fancier, Equiano has pivoted with an approachable light rum that’s cocktail-ready.
It’s also worth noting the effect of technology on the latest crop of rum bottles. Although that’s certainly not restricted to rum, it speaks volumes about rum as a versatile canvas—in this case, as a medium for projecting a brand’s values and aesthetics. For example, the Blackwell rum speaks to the entertainment industry, incorporating an augmented-reality experience available via a QR code on the bottle. Meanwhile, the pricey limited-edition bottle for Dictador 2 Masters Niepoort incorporates an array of “advanced security solutions,” designed “to protect our rum’s authenticity,” its producer says, ranging from gold paint with UV protection to armored glass with fingerprint technology required to unlock the bottle.
Of course, most rums don’t go to such lengths to ensure that no one messes with the liquid inside. But anyone with a good bottle of rum on hand knows that’s something to cherish. These are nine new bottles to explore.
90,000 JAMAICA – vacation in the style of freedom
What is it? Jamaica is a paradise of the Caribbean Sea, an island country with an area of almost 11,000 km². Jamaica only declared independence from Great Britain in 1962. The population of the island is almost 3 million people. Of these, about a million live in the capital, Kingston. Hospitable and sunny, with beautiful white beaches, exotic nature, the famous Blue Mountains, azure sea and hotels for every taste, it will appeal to both noisy young people and romantic couples. An island of goodness, an island of “no problems”, an island of ubiquitous reggae, serene smiles, colorful sea, eternal summer, sweet bliss of idleness … Everyone here dances and sings in reggae style, from waiters to guides, and you will surely sing and dance!
How to get there? Since 2018, it has been easier than ever, for the first time in a long time direct charter flights from Russia have appeared from Moscow – Montego Bay (Jamaica) – Moscow, which is a huge advantage over any regular flights with numerous transfers.You can find out all the details about tourist vouchers to the island from us!

In tourist areas, US dollars and international credit cards: Visa, Mastercard are accepted for payment.
Where to rest?
1. Montego Bay – the second largest city in Jamaica, the most popular luxury resort with expensive Ultra All Inclusive hotels on the shores of white sandy beaches. In general, it is also a vibrant city where you can stroll along the waterfront, have fun in bars, immerse yourself in the rhythms of dance, and enjoy Old English architecture.The epicenter of fun is the never-ending Gloucester Ave. And the real life of Jamaica can be seen in the center – downtown and on the pedestrian square Sam Sharpe Sq. Here you should definitely visit the Museum of St James, dedicated to the history of slavery.
2. Negril – popular developing resort in the west of the island, with low-rise buildings, excellent hotels, quiet and peaceful. The cleanest sea with 11 kilometers of white sand beach, where you can find the serenity of azure water, meet breathtaking sunsets and get lost in time with a happy smile!

Here you can choose an accommodation option for every taste and budget, find the most affordable prices. The resort is located near the famous Discovery Bay with luxurious tropical vegetation and colorful beaches.In the evenings, discos are lit up here, coastal restaurants are deliciously fed … On weekends, majestic ocean liners dock at the shore, with hundreds of tourists, so on such days it is better to find something to do in another part of the island or choose a local quiet beach in a secluded bay where you can hide from the crowds vacationers. Visit the Dunns River Falls, the beautiful botanical gardens and the famous Escape Caves, which are 37 meters below sea level. Bob Marley fans must visit the singer’s house, located 40 km south of the city.

5. White House Bay – recently a fishing village in the southwest of the island, and now a young resort with virgin jungle nature, although there is only one hotel, but luxurious.
What to see and do? Resting in Jamaica, you can do a lot:
– Forget about “No problem!” Is a favorite saying of Jamaicans. Here is the most positive local population in the world, they constantly smile, wonder and rejoice at the world, involuntarily charging everyone around with their mood.
– Hand feed the hummingbirds. The pennant-tailed hummingbird, the national symbol of Jamaica, lives only in Jamaica.
– Ride an ostrich, swim with dolphins.
– Visit the coffee planter’s estate.
– Dance, sing and have fun to the rhythms of reggae.
– Climb to the top of Blue Mountain Peak – the highest mountain in the southeast of the island is considered a paradise for those who love hiking in the rainforest. The mountains are very beautiful and really blue: stone bald patches shine bluish-gray, like a pigeon’s neck. The best Jamaican coffee, Blue Mountain, is named after them.
– Collecting tried and tested rum varieties in the old factory in the town of Appleton, where rum is made according to recipes from a century ago.First, you will be shown the plantations, they will give you a taste of the sweet cane stalk, and then they will guide you through all the workshops, explaining the intricacies of rum making. Here you can get acquainted with more than 100 varieties of rum and, of course, buy the ones you like most.
– Take a dip in the waterfalls, which are here instead of water parks! Dunn’s River (streams head straight into the Caribbean), Mayfield and Yas. The surroundings of the waterfalls are interesting for nature lovers (exotic flowers and ferns grow here, birds and butterflies fly) and hiking (climbing numerous ledges, swimming in natural pools inside the cascades).For waterfalls, it is better to buy comfortable coral slippers, because you will have to climb merrily and fervently, holding on to the handle with a long chain of happy people of all ages and skin colors! This will never be forgotten!
– Visit the museum of the most famous reggae artist. The Bob Marley Museum is full of visitors, so guided tours are held here every hour, the program includes acquaintance with the life and work of the Jamaican genius, as well as listening to his most famous compositions.(Located in the capital of the island, Kingston)
– The village of Nine Miles is the birthplace and burial place of singer Bob Marley, where his house is located, where he was born and raised, as well as his mausoleum.
– Devon House – an original architectural mansion, where one of the best restaurants operates, as well as an ice cream shop, decorated in the style of the 19th century, and Brick Oven bakery (located in the capital of Kingston)
The biggest mistake you can make in Jamaica is to spend your entire vacation in a hotel. Jamaica has a rich and interesting culture, beautiful nature and interesting people.
What to bring?
– Multi-colored huge headdresses resembling loose berets, which at one time became the hallmark of the image of Bob Marley
– Rum is fame, pride and one of the main souvenirs of the island. The world famous brand of rum is Appleton.
– Blue Mountain – elite coffee, recognized all over the world, any drink of John Lennon.It is one of the tallest growing coffees in the world. The coffee plantations are located at an altitude of about 1200 meters above sea level. Coffee is completely devoid of bitterness and is suitable for those who do not like it because of the bitterness.
– National souvenirs – products of local wooden crafts, various Rastafari cultural items, bracelets, necklaces, hats, shirts, badges, wooden drums
– The legendary Pickapeppa is a brown sauce made in Jamaica since 1921 from a mixture of cane vinegar, tomatoes, onions, mangoes, raisins, tamarind, peppers and spices. The composition is kept in oak barrels for one year.
– Souvenirs associated with Bob Marley and his amazing music are not only Rasta T-shirts and hats, but also collectible coins with the image of the singer, a solid gift.
Car Rentals: Car rental in Jamaica is one of the most expensive in the entire Caribbean. The main rental points are concentrated at the airport; you can also rent a car at a special counter in most hotels. On the roads, you need to be extremely careful – the locals prefer an aggressive driving style.In cities, the speed is limited to 50 km / h, on suburban highways – up to 80 km / h. To rent a car, you need to have an international driving license and be over 25 years old. IMPORTANT! Jamaica is driving on the left!
The territories of hotels and resort areas are carefully guarded by the police, but far beyond their borders there are already more dangers in the form of beggars, thieves and deceivers. We recommend, as during any other tourist trip, to make copies of documents and carry them with you (leaving the originals in the safe at the hotel), not to leave your belongings and suitcases unattended, not to carry large amounts of cash with you and not to wear expensive jewelry on walks in the city or on excursions.Another danger is sunburn, which can be obtained even in cloudy weather, therefore, it is imperative to use protective creams with a high protection factor. Of all insects and animals, only mosquitoes and midges are dangerous, so be sure to use repellents! No vaccinations are required to visit Jamaica. All common medicines are easy to find here, but it’s better to bring any specific medicines you need with you. We also recommend drinking bottled water.
IMPORTANT! In Jamaica, possession, use and distribution of any drugs is punishable by law!
Everything is fine in moderation, do not forget this, be vigilant, and Jamaica will turn out to be one of your brightest adventures – on the other side of the world, among the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea!
And as Jamaica’s national hero Bob Marley would say:
Don’t Worry Be Happy!
Black River (Jamaica) – Black River (Jamaica)
Black River is one of the longest rivers in Jamaica. At 53.4 km (33.2 miles), it was considered the longest until it was discovered that the Rio Minho was 92.8 km long. Its name comes from the darkness of the riverbed caused by thick layers of decaying vegetation. More than 100 bird species have been recorded in the Black River swamp.
The source of the river is Cockpit Country, where it flows underground before exiting north of Siloa on the southern edge of Cockpits (18.1895534 ° N 77.6833069 ° W).
18 ° 11’22 ″ s.sh., 77 ° 41’00 ″ W / / 18.1895534; -77.6833069
Immediately after its emergence, the river winds gently through the reed fields of the Appleton estate. It gains momentum from the One Eye River, which is an extension of the larger Hectors River that forms the Trelawney – Manchester border. As he approaches Maggotty, his speed increases and rapids occur from time to time.
Passing through Maggotty, the river flows along the road and descends to several small waterfalls and the Black River Gorge, located in Apple Valley Park. Passing Newton, the river empties into the Upper Bogs, which are joined by the Smith River and other smaller tributaries, where thick reeds thrive. In the Elim area, a fish farm grows “Jesus fish”, a species of African bass named for its reputation as a prolific breeder. Jacana is also known locally as the “Jesus Bird” as it gives the impression of walking on water as he makes his way among the floating leaves of aquatic plants.
Guide to Rasta on the Black River
Lakovia and the Middle Quarters are located between the Upper and Lower Marshes. The middle quarters are famous for their crayfish, which locals call “hot pepper shrimp”. The traps used by fishermen are similar to those on the Niger River in Africa; the knowledge of their manufacture was brought to the island by slaves over 300 years ago.
The Bottom Bogs are composed of shallow estuaries, marshes and mangrove swamps, providing a rich ecological environment for a wide range of fish, birds and other creatures, including lobsters, mangrove snappers, snook and mullet. Here the river joins the YS River, making the Lower Bogs the largest (14,085 acres) swamp in the Caribbean. American crocodiles ( Crocodylus acutus ) inhabit the swamps, but the population has declined, mainly due to habitat loss as severe draining of crops or tourists destroys their nesting sites. Among the birds, there are egrets, herons and ospreys. The Lower Marsh mangroves are sometimes showy with aerial roots spread out like the legs of spiders, sometimes dropping up to 40 feet into the river.
The river flows into the sea (18.021624 ° N 77.846949 ° W) on the eastern outskirts of the city of the same name.
18 ° 01′18 ″ N, 77 ° 50′49 ″ W / / 18.021624; -77.846949
Trunks of log trees were floated down the Black River to the port for shipment to England for the manufacture of paints.
Nowadays, motor boats carry tourists on excursions from the town of Black River to the lower reaches.
90,000 country with a positive attitude. Our impressions
A joyful event happened to me yesterday, with which I hasten to share with you. A year ago, my husband and I went to Jamaica, but the photos from the trip were lost, so it seemed to me. Yesterday I found them and I am in a hurry to share with you my impressions and beautiful photos. We chose Jamaica as a vacation destination by chance. My husband wanted to go to the Canary Islands, and I wanted to go to the Maldives, Jamaica became a compromise.And we have not regretted a single gram of it. In addition to the incredibly beautiful beaches, nature, interesting sights, reggae sounds everywhere. And you yourself do not notice how the hips smoothly swing to the rhythm of the music.
During our vacation, we visited 6 excursions: the Bob Marley Mausoleum, a trip to the capital – Kingston, a trip to the former pirate capital – Port Royal, Blue Mountain coffee plantations, rafting on the Martha Bra River, a mystical mansion of former British planters The Rose Hall saw the stadium where Jamaica infamously lost to Argentina 5-0.So wait for a lot of interesting articles about Jamaica.
Jamaica – a country with a positive attitude
Until 1962, Jamaica was part of Great Britain and was a British colony. Jamaicans fought for their rights for a very long time and stubbornly, dreaming of gaining independence. But having received it, they never figured out what to do with it. Living Jamaican is not to worry about anything and enjoy every moment, but this was not always the case.
In 1494, when the island was discovered by the navigator Christopher Columbus, Jamaica became a Spanish colony, and the indigenous population, Indians, were deprived of their freedom.
Ruthless exploitation of the indigenous people led to their disappearance. In the 16th century, the Spaniards began to import slaves from Africa to Jamaica to work on the reed plantations. It was a terrible time for Africans. According to historical data, slaves were transported in stacks in the holds of ships. Many of them never reached their destination.
During transportation, even elementary sanitary standards were not adhered to, various diseases flourished on the ships, such as scurvy, smallpox and others.According to official figures, 20% of slaves died on the way, but this is not the worst thing that befell their fate.
By the mid-17th century, Britain had conquered Jamaica and turned it into a major center for the slave trade. By the 18th century, the overwhelming majority of the population were African Americans who worked on the reed plantations. The main industry was the production of sugar and the famous Jamaican rum. African Americans worked seven days a week and were often brutally punished by slave owners, most often for fun.
The brutal exploitation sparked a series of violent uprisings. And in 1838 a decree was signed to abolish slavery. British planters began importing workers from India and China on a contract basis. A significant contribution to the development of the economy of Jamaica was the investment from the United States in the export production of bananas, cocoa, coffee and coconuts. In the 20th century, Jamaica took advantage of England’s weakening after World War II to gain partial self-government in 1944 and independence in 1962.
Despite the fact that Jamaica is becoming more and more popular with tourists every year, independent movement around the island is not recommended.In some areas of the island, locals are aggressive towards the white tourist and can use physical force. Some may still have a genetic dislike for whites after years of suffering from their ancestors. It is safe in tourist areas. Jamaicans know that tourists have money, so they try to make good money on it by offering various services and goods.
