While in Jamaica recently, my daughter and I visited Rockland's Bird Sanctuary and had a fantastic time. We were not there at the ideal time but we still each fed two hummingbirds. It was amazing. They are such beautiful and graceful birds. However, you must have patience. You sit quietly for a while and then they seem to appear out... More

This is one of those things that you just have to experience if you love Hummingbirds. They land on your finger and drink from the little bottle that they give you. This is run by a man that worked for the women that stated this place at her house. Nothing has changed but the women has passed on and the... More

If you are a person who loves birds , then you will like this place! My husband and I enjoyed the guide and his "Here birdie -birdie!" calls actually worked and within minutes, a doctor bird flew right by us! I had a hummingbird land on my finger and I fed it sugar water, very cool! A funky, off the... More

So I have read all the excellent reviews and decided it was about time that I took a trip to the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. I arrived a little after 1:00 on a Friday and as I walked through the very lush, green entrance, I was excited to begin my wonderful experience. I was lead to a small covered verandah where... More

Wow. Nowhere else in the world can you sit in a beautiful garden and have hummingbirds come and land on your hands. It was just incredible. We loved hearing the story of the woman who tamed them and having a guided tour around the garden.

Our private tour guide took us to this lovely bird sanctuary. It wasn't what we expected, but even better. There were not the big tropical birds you think of but the most beautiful humming birds and natural setting for them. You sit in a lovely area sheltered from the sun and the hummingbirds come right over and sit on your... More

Myself and a friend hand-fed giant hummingbirds nectar. Was highlight of my trip! The staff at the bird sanctuary was very friendly and helpful. Trip was enjoyable in cab as well

Probably not the most visited attraction in the area, our driver couldn't find it at first. It was absolutely amazing to have two different species of hummingbirds sitting on your finger (Jamaican Mango and the Red-Billed Streamertail). We were four people and the birds seemed to prefer one of us but in the end all of us got a visit.... More

My husband and I spent a memorable afternoon at this beautiful, special place tucked up in the lush Jamaican countryside. We arranged our visit through Barrett Adventures, who we used for several other tours during our stay in April of 2014. I highly recommend that tour company and will review on them separately. Prior to our stop at the bird... More

I had been looking forward to this tour for years! It was worth the $20.00!!! I love that this place is not commercialized!!! You need to bring your own camera and they will take pictures for you. Once we were seated it only took a few minutes until they were flying over us and landing on our finger to feed.... More
