The walk through the garden allows you to see the exotic plants and flowers you see in expensive floral arrangements. Midway your walk, you are met with a picturesque waterfall. Our guide was knowledgeable, even given us an experience of taking in the aroma of a unique plant when bending its leaf would give you three different aromas. We are so glad that we brought our cameras. We would not want to forget this unexpected treasure.Though this is may not be what one would call a grand attraction, the unique finds in this garden are memorable.

A nice place to visit when in Ocho Rios. It also offers you a nice panoramic view of the town. There's a $10 entrance fee but it was included in our package. There is no food on site and the beverages available are overpriced. You'll find a small museum on site, right by the entrance. Nothing much to see there but visit it if you have 2 minutes. A guide will accompany you on your tour and will give you information about the different plants and trees you'll see.

We went here as part of a day trip with a private driver to Ocho Rios. (Our driver was Lindsay Mcfarlane of SNL tours on Facebook. He is the BEST!) The gardens are very well maintained and gorgeous. I wish I had left my bathing suit on so I could have gotten into the falls and the small pool there. Our guide was an elderly gentleman who was very knowledgeable but spoke very softly. I had to really listen to hear what he was saying. I felt he could have told us more information about the plants and felt like we moved a little too quickly through the gardens. I wish we had brought more money that day because there was a really cool wooden carved crab in the gift shop there but we did not have enough to buy it and pay for the rest of our day. The gardens are so pretty.The pictures say it all.
