We decided to take some Native friends to see the humming birds. Even having locals with us, it was an adventure to find, but WELL worth the effort. The view of Mo Bay was spectacular. Then, the minute we got in our chair, we were constantly having varying types of humming birds attempting to feed, although we didn't even have... More

Fantastic views of the streamertail hummingbird. You get to hand feed them! This is a quiet and quaint site for the birder and nature lover alike.

This place is out of the way and not on most vacationers' to-do list but it should be! The experience was really quite relaxing and awesome. Getting to this place is an adventure in itself going up a steep hill with no paved road but ending up near the top of the hill with an incredible view of Montego Bay.... More

If you are a nature lover, this is a must do. We got there early (before 10,) and the guide was welcoming and friendly. We immediately sat down to hear the history of the place, and were given the bottles to feed the hummingbirds. We fed several, and got to see many more flying around and eating. Afterwards, we learned... More

What a haven of tranquility! Birds would come and eat out of my daughter's hand. My kids were fascinated with this place as my wife and I were. We will definitely return when we go back to Jamaica.

While in Jamaica recently, my daughter and I visited Rockland's Bird Sanctuary and had a fantastic time. We were not there at the ideal time but we still each fed two hummingbirds. It was amazing. They are such beautiful and graceful birds. However, you must have patience. You sit quietly for a while and then they seem to appear out... More

This is one of those things that you just have to experience if you love Hummingbirds. They land on your finger and drink from the little bottle that they give you. This is run by a man that worked for the women that stated this place at her house. Nothing has changed but the women has passed on and the... More

If you are a person who loves birds , then you will like this place! My husband and I enjoyed the guide and his "Here birdie -birdie!" calls actually worked and within minutes, a doctor bird flew right by us! I had a hummingbird land on my finger and I fed it sugar water, very cool! A funky, off the... More

So I have read all the excellent reviews and decided it was about time that I took a trip to the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. I arrived a little after 1:00 on a Friday and as I walked through the very lush, green entrance, I was excited to begin my wonderful experience. I was lead to a small covered verandah where... More

Wow. Nowhere else in the world can you sit in a beautiful garden and have hummingbirds come and land on your hands. It was just incredible. We loved hearing the story of the woman who tamed them and having a guided tour around the garden.
