If you're looking for a relaxing day spent in the mountains I'd definitely recommend spending some time at Holywell. We weren't sure the best way to get here by public transportation but we were able to take a mini bus from Papine - the driver dropped us at the Rose Hill Estate junction (a little out of the way of...

I have no problems with Holywell itself, infact it's great. The road TO GO to holywell is long, windy and in very bad shape, but even cars can make it. Once you get into holywell, it's a different story. These are dirt roads that ungulate, like mini mountains. Cars will find this extrmely difficult to reach certain spots. If not,... More

Beautiful place! cool, fresh air, gorgeous surroundings. Bring yourself a barbeque and some stuff to throw on it and a cooler of drinks and prepare for a fantastic day. Hiking trails included!

The Blue Mountain and John Crow Park is a stunning place. The drive is along a curling road gripping the mountainside, and each turn offers another view of beauty. Lots of places to stop on the way to stop and chat, buy some fruit or a drink. The road passes through the army barracks, never have I been so envious... More

If you are looking for an escape from the Kingston heat, a trip to Holywel is well recommended! The park has several gazebos with benches if you need to be under cover. Some have small BBQ pits that appear to be meant for cooking, however many are without adequate grills. The trails are special. Walks through true nature, with only... More

If you are looking for a place to get away from the business of the city then Holywell Park is the place to go. In the mountains of Jamaica this place is a hidden gem, the view is amazing, the air is fresh and the vegetation is unbelievable. Great place for camping and hiking. There are also park rangers that... More

This is a perfectly lovely place and I'm sure we would have had a phenomenal time had I done a little more research. So this is a public service announcement for all those considering a hike to the beautiful waterfall you see pictured in Google searches of Holywell. First of all we were assured that we did not need a... More
