This is a must see place for nature lovers. They have all types of birds. You can also feed the birds and workers provide you with the foods. Also, the water fall is smaller compare to Dunn River Falls, but the view fro the top is awesome.

I was staying in a hotel nearby so I walked to this beautiful park to bird watch. Garfield Campbell was my guide. He knew the local names of the birds. I had just purchased THE BIRDS OF JAMAICA at the Catalyst Book Store at 29 Main Street Shop#44, Ocho Rios. (The 3 or 4 book stores in Montego Bay did... More

We had gone to Dunn's River and made an impromptu stop at Shaw Gardens. I am so very glad we did. It was so quiet and beautiful. It was 10.00 per person and the guide was so informative. The waterfall there was so pretty but the plants and flowers were truly fantastic. The history, the views, really breathtaking. The road... More

Loved Shaw Park; a little hard to find (follow most of the signs to Konoko Falls), but well worth it. Had one of the locals give me the tour, which was much nicer than expected. They have a natural waterfall and spring water pool that's gorgeous. So many photo spots & old archways & a gigantic banyan tree. My only... More

Went here with a group of friends, most of whom are gardening enthusiasts. Guided tour of the garden and walkways was stunning. Huge palms and plants dwarfed us as we wove our way around. Great view of the harbor in Ochi from beneath an ancient baobab tree. Fabulous experience, would do it again. Good choice of visit which you can... More

One of our stops on our tour of Ocho Rios. It has an entrance fee of $10 per person. For your money you get a guided tour of the Gardens. I'm not green fingered but hearing all about the different trees, plants , grasses and birds was eye opening. We were also told about the hotel that use to stand... More
