Mayfield Falls

Mayfield Falls was one of those waterfalls where we really had to manage our expectations. I think part of the confusion resulted from Google image searches where pictures of YS Falls were…

YS Falls

YS Falls has to be one of the prettiest waterfalls in Jamaica. In fact, we’d argue it’s pretty close to Dunn’s River Falls in terms of scenic allure…

Somerset Falls

Somerset Falls is a pretty waterfall, but we’d argue that it’s probably more of a side attraction compared to the neighboring Hidden Falls and the cave-like grotto it spills into…

Reach Falls

Reach Falls (I’ve also seen it spelled Riech Falls) was a waterfall that was more about the experience than the scenic allure – though its main waterfall was pretty. That said…

Dunn’s River Falls

Dunns River Falls has to be hands down the most popular waterfall in Jamaica. We wonder if it’s also the most popular tourist attraction period. A reason why we think this is the case…

Tacky Falls

Tacky Falls, of all the waterfalls in Jamaica, was the only one that was truly non-commercialized and back-to-nature. In other words, there were no tourist crush, no facilities, no souvenir…

Mahoe Falls

Mahoe Falls was the first waterfall that Julie and I saw in Jamaica. Its name (pronounced “ma-HO”) is derived from mahogany, which we did see a few during our visit here…

Diamond Falls

Diamond Falls is probably the main attraction of the Diamond Botannical Gardens & Waterfall property. What makes this waterfall stand out is that its waters are laced with…

Enbas Saut Falls

Enbas Saut Falls lies deep in the Edmund Forest Reserve, which is dominated by rainforest as they’re watched over by Morne Gimie and other surrounding mountains…

Spyke Falls

Spyke Falls was actually a waterfall we didn’t expect to see on our St Lucia trip. It was introduced to us by a guide who also guided us to Enbas Saut Falls and it’s allegedly the tallest waterfall..

Toraille Falls

Toraille Falls is one of the easier waterfalls to visit given that it’s well signed with a pretty roomy car park. After getting through the entrance hut and paying the entrance…

Sault Falls (Errard Falls or Dennery Falls)

Sault Falls (also known as Errard Falls as well as Dennery Falls) is perhaps St Lucia’s most scenic waterfall falling some 15-20m over a rounded cliff. It’s one of the few…

Anse La Raye Falls

Anse La Raye Falls is a pretty cascade inland from the small, but charming fishing town of Anse La Raye on the western side of the island. Of the handful of falls we’ve seen…

Kaieteur Falls

Kaieteur Falls is Guyana’s greatest scenic wonder. The Potaro River is said to drop some 221m with a width of nearly 100m (though rainy-season dimensions of 741ft high and 370ft wide…

Orinduik Falls

Orinduik Falls was included as a throw-in for our day tour to Kaieteur Falls. It was a waterfall that contrasted Kaieteur in many ways. For starters, this was a wide, multi-tiered series of…

Catarata de Corontachaca

Catarata de Corontachaca was a pleasant waterfall surprise (at least one we didn’t expect to see on our trip) sitting several minutes west of the town of Pedro Ruiz. I was told the falls…

Catarata Gocta (“Gocta Falls”)

Catarata Gocta was perhaps the most impressive waterfall in all of Peru. This waterfall was said to be “discovered” by westerners in 2005 when Stefan Ziemendorff noticed the waterfall during…

Catarata de Yumbilla

Catarata de Yumbilla was a thin 890m waterfall plunging in several tiers. Although it was said to be taller than Catarata Gocta, we were only able to see about 600m of its overall drop…

Catarata de Chinata

Catarata de Chinata was an impressive 580m waterfall plunging in three visible tiers then cascading further into the jungle. In theory, we should’ve been able to get a pretty clean direct view…

“Machu Picchu Waterfall”

The “Machu Picchu Waterfall” is the name I’m dubbing this rare waterfall by Incan ruins… it was not often we were able to see waterfalls and ruins together. So this one particularly caught my…
