We took an early afternoon blue mountain bike tour that ends up in the gardens. This is the best time since we had the garden completely to ourselves. Like many attractions in Jamaica there are very nice guides that work on tips. They are very helpful and proud of their gardens. The waterfall is the ultimate in garden decor. A... More

Such a beautiful relaxing place that doesnt get enough attention. Theres a beautiful waterfall to climb, not as big as Dunns River but definitely more private and serene. After your walk and climb you can get into the heart shaped man made pool which allows you to get a little cave experience. Absolutely breathtaking views. Beautiful sights and sounds. Def... More

This garden and falls is exceptionally beautiful. There is no hurry - you don't need to use the guides if you want to walk around by yourself. We couldn't climb the waterfalls, not just because we were too scared, but because we didn't have the shoes so we had to use the steps. The views were the same - stunning... More

Horticulture is my things and the gardens are spectacular. There is a $20 admission fee and a guide adds you to a group once you are inside the gardens. Our guide was OK, but we were added to a large cruise ship group, so a real horticultural tour was not possible. The guide left when the cruise people departed. We... More

took a taxi for $20 each (4 of us) round trip, he came back at a pre set time, paid him AFTER. about 10 minutes from town, had a fine tour with a guide, the flora and fauna well explained, the falls just beautiful. A nice two hour experience for half the price! Admission was $20 each.

Wow, had this place to ourselves and loved every moment! Go go go!!!!! Plan on staying for a couple hours to really take in all the gardens and the waterfall, as it is $25 entry.
