We drove up Fern gully on a day we hired a driver to take us to Moneague and it was amazing. Deep in the gully with the beautiful greens around us was quite an experience.

I've never seen so many beautiful flowers in my life. A lot of them smell amazing! There is medicine inside of some of them in what we all use to cure illness.

So much fun and yet so nerve wrecking all in one!! This road twists and turns and it is almost endless!! I thought I was going to die at a few turns. I must say though that the truly greatest drivers learned how to drive in Jamaica!!

Traveled through fern gully during our Yardi countryside tour. Was very pretty and was a peaceful setting. Alicia and Nicole were very informative on the gully as well as all other parts of the tour.
