Our guide gave us a lot of history along the way. The trees, ferns, and undergrowth were very picturesque.

I’ve never seen a rainforest before so that was really neat. Worth the drive. However, I recommend taking a tour (see attached pic for Wynter’s/Keith’s tour guide info) that includes the drive through the rainforest. We stopped at a cafe with an overlook after passing...More

Fern gully is a nice drive through a little valley/canyon where both sides have been planted with a variety of ferns. The road winds through the canyon and you can admire the tropical greenery on both sides of the road. I am a big admirer...More

We went thru Fern Gully as part of our island tour. Basically drove 2/3 of the way up a canyon with tropical foliage on both sides, then the bus turned around and went back down. That’s it. Nothing much to see. Don’t waste your time.

I don't think that "walking" through Fern Gully is too feasible, as it is one of the main roads that locals traverse to get from Ocho Rios to Spanish Town and other locations along the way. Traveling through Fern Gully can... More

Have good time in Ocho Rios! The round trip to Fren Gully will last about 20 minutes. A stop to look at local art( that is, if anyone is exhibiting) might add a few minutes. It is beautiful, but a very short tour. You might... More
