Entrance fee hike for popular Reach Falls in Portland

Published:Monday | December 28, 2015 | 12:37 PM

Come January 1, patrons will have to pay up to 200 dollars more to access to the popular Reach Falls in Portland. 

The Urban Development Corporation, UDC, which operates the attraction, announced the rate increases in a newspaper advertisement yesterday. 

The adult entry fee will move from 300 dollars to 500 dollars, while the cost for children will move from 150 dollars to 250 dollars. 

The UDC says the current entrance fees have been in place since 2007. 

It further said despite attempts to avoid a hike, operating and maintenance costs have increased overtime. 

The UDC says it will not compromise on quality. 

Thousands of Jamaicans flock to the Reach Falls each year, especially on major holidays.
