We enjoyed our visit to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. It was tough to get through the road there but once we got there it was worth it. We sat in the backyard - there were feeders everywhere and lots of different types of birds flying around. The caretaker gave us each a bottle of sugar water and the hummingbirds came right... More

Hard to get to. Have to arrange a tour here through a private cab. Bad roads up in the mountainside. Spend a couple hours. Feed the hummingbirds. Not much else for $35 per person. No particularly recommended.

This was a real highlight of our trip to Jamaica. It was so magical to feed the hummingbirds and see all of the other birds that were there. We really enjoyed looking around the garden and seeing all the plants and trees. The view down to montego bay was incredible. This was one of the cheapest excursions we went on... More

If you want to see the Jamaica's national bird this is the place to do it. Having a Doctor bird land on your finger to feed is amazing. We saw 3 different hummingbirds during our visit. Note the road to the sanctuary is pretty rough and you must climb a steep hill to get there. The $20 entry fee is... More

For anyone who loves birds this place should be top of your things to do in Jamaica. It sits up in the hills overlooking Montego Bay and the views from some parts of the property are stunning. The highlight of our visit was feeding the Doctor Bird hummingbirds with little bottles of sugar water. They fly down and perch on... More

Very cool experience having the jamaican hummingbirds (the only place to find them anywhere in the world- they have a cute little tail and change colors from dayglo green and purple to black- worth seeing!) The our guide helped us feed the hummingbirds, showed us all the plants and fruits they grew onsite. We took a cab to the sanctuary... More

It is going in to the country side of St James. Beautiful lush green hills you see locals. The road in that area is not in the best shape but we did not mind. The felt like they where on a adventure going up to the house. The brezze was welcoming. The hummingbirds showed up the children where amazed. So... More

I wish the hummingbirds on my back porch were as trusting as the ones at Rocklands. It is quite amazing to experience these delicate birds up close & personal. We are planning to go again this year on our trip to Montego bay!
