I've been there and it surprised me because I always thought of it as just a Disney cartoon until I was actually there. It's more than beautiful, brimmed with ferns,and tall banana trees. And everything is green, even the bunches of bananas high up in...More

This trip was not worth the time or money. You simply drive though a road surrounded by ferns which to the untrained eye (our eyes, I suppose) is just a bunch of tall plants and trees. I've seen much prettier sights driving cross-country in the...More

A beautiful place perfect for romantic pictures. Definitely awe-inspiring. Nature in the Caribbean is something to behold.

Trees over hang the road which makes it very shady. Lots of different trees. Found it kind of boring.

We didn't stop in this area, but we drove through Fern Gully on our way to another excursion. It was amazing to see, great for those who like to take photos! Be sure to watch the animated film Fern Gully before visiting here!

A great lush tropical jungle but remember this is Jamaica and their is not much wildlife. They do have mongoose and birds but everything else is goats. We saw vultures, little green herons and egrets, along with a great blue heron and a little blue...More

Don’t miss this little patch of heaven. The TA reviews were a mixed bag so I had a touch of skepticism. A quick trip is easily paired with another outing. We loved FG.

I visited Fern Gully whilst in holiday. The visit lasted about 15/20 minutes estimated. When you drive through Fern Gully you surrounded by green swaths of green trees on either side of the roads. It is truly beautiful!

I don't think that "walking" through Fern Gully is too feasible, as it is one of the main roads that locals traverse to get from Ocho Rios to Spanish Town and other locations along the way. Traveling through Fern Gully can... More

Have good time in Ocho Rios! The round trip to Fren Gully will last about 20 minutes. A stop to look at local art( that is, if anyone is exhibiting) might add a few minutes. It is beautiful, but a very short tour. You might... More
