Konoko Falls is a tourist attraction nestled in the hilly outskirts of popular resort town Ocho Rios.

Happy New Year! I hope it’s everything you wish it to be and more. Welcome to my first blog post of 2020.

YS Falls is the twelfth Jamaican waterfall I’ve visited and written about on here, and I couldn’t be happier. Waterfalls are my favourite natural feature and like the other eleven falls, YS didn’t disappoint.

Magic happens when local female travel bloggers get together, and Breadnut Valley happened to be the first destination of hopefully many future linkups. Breadnut Valley Falls are a series of mesmerizing cascades and turquoise pools set in Breadnut Valley, Maggotty, St. Elizabeth parish.
