Beautiful falls, nice tour

We decided to go to these falls instead of the busy and strenuous Dunn's River Falls. The falls are located just up the hill from the Center of Ocho Rios. The place is quiet so we... read more

While in port my friend and I visited turtle river, it doesn't seem to be well known but has great history ( listen well there is a "test" at the end lol). We had a great guild who pointed out plants and flowers as we walked through this park on our way to see the "falls". The water falls were... More

Price is 20 us $ per person, including guided tour. They have a website and it is well situated on Google maps (5 minutes from ocho rios you could even walk to go there). We went in the morning and we were alone for the entire tour. First we saw the small waterfalls, you climb and take pictures. Our guide... More

Stayed here at the Enchanted Gardens Resort back in the early 90's and have been visiting the falls every year since. In February 2013, got married here at Lady Jane falls. So magical!

We arrived at Turtle River Falls on foot and had the place nearly all to ourselves. It was a hike uphill to get there, but it was worth the climb! Our private guide was very personable and friendly, and the aviary was a highlight. What a beautiful park. Current management is working hard to bring the property back to its... More

My family and I absolutely loved this place, it had some great features including 6 waterfalls which you could climb and have some amazing shots with. Also had a pool area which had a sit in bar unfortunately the bar is no longer in use but this place is seriously a hidden gem, it has so much potential which isn't... More

Turtle River Falls and Gardens is simply stunning. Our taxi driver brought us here, and we paid a $20 per person entrance fee. We were assigned a photographer and also a guide, Devon, who was very knowledgeable of the property's history (a once-stunning resort that went bankrupt after a former prime minister owed over $1,000,000 in back taxes), the flora...

It was a great way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon. The staff was very nice. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the entire experience worth while. The pool was nice, especially on a hot summer day. The falls were simply breathtaking, there was enough space that everyone could enjoy themselves without being on top of each other. The... More

this place has several beautiful waterfalls. Many steps to climb but worth it. We went on the 'off-peak' time of the week so no crowds. Feeding the birds was quite an experience too. Would definitely go there again

A nice relaxing day out if you are in the Ocho Rios area. At just $1300 Jamaican dollars per adult, it is a nice cheap day trip out. Here you will experience the waterfalls, not as big as Dunns River Falls, but beautiful none the less. There is also a big Aviary where the birds will come sit on your... More
