It's a quiet place, full of songbirds and cool plants. The guide was very enthusiastic and informative. There's a beautiful waterfall there as well. A video of the tour is offered for sale (just $20) at the end of the tour. (This was part of our Norwegian shore excursion called "Best of Ocho Rios" which I would highly recommend as a GREAT value!!!)

We visited this as part of an organised trip and it wasn't long enough. We could have stayed all day and will return to explore the whole garden. It has everything, glorious plants, shrubs and trees. Add to this exotic birds, streams and flowing waterfalls, its a nature lovers paradise. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable with a passion for the surroundings. Spotting humming birds just added to the pleasure. Great views over Ocho Rios complete the enjoyment.
The only downside is the quality of its catering facilities.

Lovers of flowers, waterfalls, nature and birds.. This Botanical Garden puts you mind at ease and relaxation with nature.. This was really lovely. Everything is labeled, so you learn a lot walking through. There are many spaces for relaxing, and there are areas for kids to play. I especially loved the lily pad pools, and the tree house made out of fallen trees from Hurricane Sandy.

It was peaceful and well-organized and well-groomed and definitely a wonderful way to spend a warm late-summer afternoon.

Beautiful place, well managed, colorful tropical garden and waterfalls. Beautiful red and pink ginger lilies, iris lilies etc. Good guides!

Great views to Ocho Rios.

At least in October, it was very hot and humid, but also very peaceful (was the only quest).
