Mayfield River Hike and Falls
The hike up the Mayfield River to the waterfall nicknamed the Washing Machine requires walking in the river itself at times, and at one point, swimming through a tunnel. Along the way, you'll be surrounded by lush fern trees and bamboo. You'll need water shoes, a swimsuit, and a sense of adventure to take part in this, one of the best ways to see Jamaica
's verdant interior. The trailhed is an hour's drive from from Negril, and you'll find lockers and a small restaurant there. Guides are always on hand to show you the way—you won't make it without them, they know all the right places to place your foot. (Be generous with your tips—they may be having a great time, but this is their job.) The reward at the end of your hike? Two waterfalls. Swim underneath and feel the refreshing force of nature.
