City Kingston has been on the road to massive developments with sky cranes aplenty. But there is one place to escape the hussle and bussle...the Hope Botanical Gardens and Zoo. If you ever visit Jamaica, Kingston in particular, it must be on your to-do list.

Great fun and exciting place. It was definately not busy at the time we went. Animals are engaging. We really enjoyed the Lion. Clean and well maintained. Take bug spray. Mosquitos are part of the park whether you like or not!
