Jamaicans, brace yourselves as the price of everything will start going up in 2016, the Year of the Monkey! Looks like the price of everything is going up along with FLOW Cable Internet (Deer, 2015, December 28) in 2016!
UDC (The Urban Development Corporation) on Monday December 28th 2015 has announced a JA$200 increase (The Jamaica Gleaner, 2015, December 28) in the entry fee to Reach Falls in Portland. Here is a video of what Reach Falls look like today.
Here’s a map in case you suddenly decided to go looking for the place!
The new entry fees, the first since 2007, comes into effect on Friday January 2016, are as follows:
- JA$500 for adults up from JA$300
- JA$250 for children up from JA$150
Reach Falls in Portland is a popular holiday spot for many Jamaican and a sprinkling of tourists alike. The pictures below do not do the attraction justice, but trus’ me, it’s a nice place!
Apparently the UDC is facing increased operating and maintenance costs and hopes that they can maintain the quality of their product.
