My wife and I visited here during a day trip out after I had read about it here. I have to say it was worth the money and the time beautiful falls. Our guide Jordan was great and was only to happy to take our pictures or share his knowledge and love for the park with us.

We hired a guide through Viatour.com who we wrote with back and forth where he could help us see the type of things we wanted in Jamaica. I told him we were interested in something outdoors with a feel for the real Jamaica without hordes of tourists. We selected Turtle River Enchanted Gardens. We also had a guide at the... More

Went on an excursion to Turtle River Falls. Almost no one else was there so this is a nice alternative to the more heavily traveled Dunn's Hills Falls. The tour guide was wonderful, and the entire tour of gardens and falls was about 75 minutes. We came off a cruise ship for the tour but had difficulty meeting our tour... More

As we wanted to avoid the crowds on Dunn's Falls, we decided to visit Turtle River Falls and Gardens on December 4th. It was a very lovely experience and we loved very much the beautiful lush gardens with its many waterfalls as well as the birds at the end of the tour, who came to pick their food from our... More

As our little group seems to love waterfalls, we decided to try out Turtle River Falls. It was incredibly beautiful. The falls were stunning. There were trees growing out of the waterfalls, like trees, growing out of the falls! It was quite a sight. Environment was chill and relaxing. If you are in Ochi, definitely visit and check it out.... More

Husband and I visited this property on December 4. There are natural waterfalls and the guide said there are fourteen of them but only seven of them with names. This property was originally called the Enchanted Gardens and was owned by Edward Seaga, a former prime minster of the island. We were also able to hand feed the birds,

My daughter and I toured the former Enchanted Garden at the first of this month. I had married her dad there in the 1990s, so it was very nice to re-visit with her. Our guide was witty and knowledgeable. The scenery was as lush and beautiful as I remember it, but it was so sad to see that the buildings... More

We visited this beautiful attraction in November 2012. The falls were fun, the aviary was a blast, and the gardens were amazing! They had recently been hit by a pretty nasty storm, so there was some significant damage but even that couldn't detract from the beauty of this place. A must-see in Ocho Rios for sure!
