YS Falls opened in 1992. It is a nature-based attraction offering the opportunity to experience the beauty of the waterfalls surrounded by lush gardens and magnificent trees.
There are seven waterfalls, several which cascade into natural pools. Some areas are fairly rocky and do not allow swimming.
Lifeguards on site, indicate which areas are for swimming, however, being able to swim is a requirement. There is a natural pool, fed by underground and above ground springs, which is more suitable for children and others unable to swim.
More recent additions to the attractions at YS Falls, include exhilarating canopy rides, which glide from the top of the falls to its base. These adventures are accompanied by experienced guides to take care of you along the way.
There are bathrooms at the ticket office, where tickets are purchased in order to board the tractor and jitney for the 10 minute journey to the waterfalls compound. Here at the ticket office, there is an eatery (grill-style) and a bar and gift shop (stocked with local crafts).
At the waterfalls, there are changing rooms and an environmentally friendly toilet (compost). There are many underground springs feeding local water supplies, so all efforts are made to protect these underground water supplies.
Rainy months are May and October and at this time the river generally comes down in spate and swimming may be suspended.
