Scatter Falls Jamaica
A quick raft ride and stroll through a banana grove and green foliage will reveal a shallow stream. The watery path leads to a wooden gate that grants easy access to the slanted cascade when opened. Community residents refer to Scatter Falls as ‘Top and Bottom Falls’ because of the height of its larger structure and the mini cascades at its base. If you’re not familiar with the area, you may not find the waterfall without a guide. I suggest opting for a full day experience, inclusive of meals.

Scatter Falls Mineral Pool
The natural pool here is unlike any other I’ve been to previously. Its molding by the environment is similar to a tub’s, bordered by a round stone finish and equipped with a natural massaging water jet. The semi-transparent jade pool is lined with mineral clay, which is reputed to be beneficial for skin and if nothing else, feels revitalizing! Subscribers and I scooped handfuls of the stuff to exfoliate with.
Fox Caves in Portland, Jamaica
If you follow the steep trail (whether via Scatter Falls or the adjacent land) there’s an entrance to another adventure! A dark, downward hole in the hills takes you inside the sizable Fox Caves. Limestone formations of varying shapes create multiple chambers to explore, and some of them glisten with help from your flashlight. In 1 chamber, you’ll find an ankle-deep running stream. The river that rushes down Scatter Falls’ rock face sprouts from here, then pours into the mineral pool that overflows into the stream below (see more of this in my YouTube vlog below).
