We did the Ocho Rios water fall. This place is beautiful and very cool to visit. They have lockers in which you can placed your non-water resistant items. MUST: if you want to relive this place over and over again, please bring a water proof camera

Visited as part of a tour. This is such a beautiful park to walk through - so many amazing flora and fauna and lovely little waterfall. We had an excellent guide and we walked for ages. We could look out onto Ochio. Really nice and relaxing break from a hectic tour.

Our driver recommended a trip here and we weren't disappointed! For $10 each we had our own personal tour guide. The tour lasted an hour and was very informative and interesting. Loved seeing all the flowers mixed with coffee, nutmeg and kiwis growing

If you drive yourself this is not easy to find. After turning off the mainroad the sign posting stops and it is easy to go the wrong way. Once there it is very low key and a nice way to spend some time. Reasonable cost of $US10 a head.

If you like the feeling of being among the trees, ferns and tropical flowers you will enjoy the visit. Smelling the spices as you go teases your pallet. The old remnents of the hotel remaining from many years gone by takes you back in time. Wear comfortable shoes and ask questions..the guide is very knowledgeable

Beautiful quiet gardens with waterfalls and so lovelyl! Could not fault it but was not easy to find (we had a hire car) - just needed a few more direction signs, the road leading to it was very poor. Had restrooms but no drinks available sadly, but worth the effort. The park is not to be missed! Some parts quite... More

Stopped to visit the Shaw Park Gardens as part of a cruise expursion that also included lunch and Dunn's River Falls. Shaw Park was absolutely beautiful. The guide was very friendly and informative. This is a must-see if you visit Ocho Rios, Jamaica! Also be sure to take your camera for lots of stunning photos.
