Description: 45 Minutes from Negril Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park welcomes you to...
45 Minutes from Negril Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park welcomes you to experience the ambiance and serenity of Nature. Abeokuta is a Heritage, Health and Eco-Tourist Attraction located in Dean's Valley Westmoreland. The Park was officially opened on January 5th, 2003 by the Nigerian High Commissioner, Her Excellency Florentina Ukonga. Abeokuta is a beautiful unspoiled natural Jamaican Attraction that has been a breathtaking and rejuvenating experience for guests locally and internationally. There is nothing like Abeokuta on the entire island and the closest place to this is Abeokuta in Nigeria, Africa to which Abeokuta, Jamaica is directly linked for over three hundred years. This occurred when the first slaves that were taken to the Parish of Westmoreland were brought to this Plantation from Abeokuta, Nigeria.The Park itself occupies 13 acres of land on a hill that was the original Plantation Yard. The remains of the Great House still stand magnificently fashioned from pure cut 2' thick stone. On the property is the oldest swimming pool in Jamaica which goes back three hundred years, with near Olympic dimensions being 71ft long and 47ft wide ranging from 4 to 10 feet in depth. There is a rope swing too!Mineral Water is supplied to this historic pool and a "Kiddie Pool" via an aqueduct 1/4 mile long. Beginning at the riverhead, water flows constantly and ends in two separate waterfalls. The therapeutic value of the Mineral Water has been highly touted in the relief of Arthritis as well as muscle or bone problems due to the concentration of Iron, Calcium, Chloride, Magnesium and several other natural minerals.The view from Abeokuta Paradisee Nature Park is quite spectacular and breathtaking due to the "bird's eye" altitude encompassing the distant ocean, spreading fields of sugar cane and enormous "paw-paw" fields that appear as a carpet of grass. There is the "Olumo Rock" which you can see on the Nature Tour. This rock is found in one other place in the world, Abeokuta, Nigeria, Africa! Abeokuta is a crime-free community with no hassles and the beautifully kept grounds are Harmonious and Tranquil with flowers and fruit trees all around.Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park is just off the B8 Main Highway between Ferris Cross and Montego Bay just a few miles from Ferris Cross. We can arrange reliable and safe drivers to collect you from whereever you are and return you safely. We can cater to all requirements, from private parties, weddings, marriage blessings, special moments, Reiki, massages, crochet lessons, BBQ's, Bar's, picnics, chillout and swimming. All is welcome.

If you would like to get away from the busy beach scene for a change of pace, give Abeokuta a look. One of the largest fresh mineral water pools in Jamaica.

I have to wonder about 2 reviews that give this beautiful place an average rating? The only thing I can figure is that they were expecting one of these god awful, man made, zipline adventure type parks. If that is your expectation, Abeokuta is not for you. If, however, you want a place that isn't swarmed by tourists, that has... More

Although I have been around Jamaica for 20 plus years. I have just recently discovered Abeoduta Paradise Nature Park. WOOOW What a great place to spend the day in nature, in mineral water, and taking the river walk is always recommended. The staff at APNP is beyond what you could ask for. The staff knows your ever need almost before... More

This place was very hard to find, they could use some signs on the road that point the way. Such a relaxing beautiful place....the pool with the little fish freaked me out a bit when I put my feet in but after a few minutes it was actually pretty cool. Had a great tour of the area from our guide... More

The feeling I get when I go to this place is amazing. The water is exhilarating at first then a calmness. I laughed when everyone was hugging the Meditation Tree but it was amazing the energy that I felt from the tree. The Natural shower that massages the back is my favourite part. Lunch was wonderful. The chicken was so... More

Upon looking at the pictures online, this place seemed to be more than it actually was. Although when we got there, the staff was great and we went on a nice hike, it was a little deceiving. Took us a little while to get there by taxi and the pool was amazing, but we just felt a little underwhelmed.

I cannot believe how many people had no idea what/ where this was! Once we got there we had the most relaxing and pleasant afternoon. The rasta owner offered a tour of the property which included a walk through the woods, around the original homestead and along an aqua duct. The water ran from the mountainside through the aqua duct... More
