This place had my husband mesmerized. Once we paid our admissions, a staff takes you to the outdoor eating area close to the swimming pool. Our party of 8 was given a table and chairs by the friendly staff. I was aware the restaurant on site is closed, so visitors can pack a picnic lunch or buy food from town... More

My husband and I toured the garden, falls, and aviary in December. Spectacular falls, set in a rainforest, with lush plants and trees all around. It was very easy to walk up stairs beside the falls and enjoy them (it is possible to walk into the falls if you want to do that). The aviary was great fun, with colorful... More

Having already visited Dunns River Falls and Mystic Mountain on a previous visit to Jamaica, my wife and I looked for something different to do on our latest visit, and decided to try Turtle River Falls. I was keen to walk some of the falls and get wet, and my wife was interested in the massive aviary, so this seemed... More

Loved doing this one. Enjoyed the falls and the walk. Guide was very knowledgeable and the photographer was fun. Both gave ample time at each falls so I could snap my own photos at my pace. Aviary to me and my mom was a bit of a let down but overall fun and would do it again for the falls

I read about these falls & decided that we would have a fun day here, we arrived & at first glance I thought the place was closed, but it was open & we where the only folks in the park. We entered the main building , I guess this is the ticketing area while they are slow, seems this time... More

An absolute hidden Jem. when we arrived we were sent out with a guide and a photographer. after doing my homework on when cruise ships were in port we ended up only ever seeing one other group on our whole visit there. The waterfalls are amazing. You get to experience them up close and personal (prepare to get wet, if... More

If you are a nature lover you will love this place. The place can do with a face lift, but there is great potential there. Awesome Falls, Fauna and Japanese KOI fishes, and to top it off, there is a bird sanctuary.

This is a nice little place to visit which is close to Ocho Rios (just off the highway). It is trying to make a comeback after years of neglect. We visited based on TripAdvisor reviews even though a local tour operator told us it "is not in operation and would be complete waste of money." (that's a copy/paste from his... More

Very picturistic! It's a beautiful falls with a lot of history behind it. The grounds are very beautiful. This was the first time I saw so many koi fishes up close and fed parrots. All persons in our group enjoyed the tour and bathing in the falls after. Its a wonderful place for a family picnic. This place has its... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Turtle River Falls. Far less crowded than other attractions with a wide variety of things to do and see. The guides are professional, friendly, and not pushy. Jordan was particulaly good, giving us plenty of time to stop and enjoy the falls, gardens, pool, or aviary. Very fair price for an optional photographic record of... More
