We stayed in Ocho Rios in early Feb of 2017. The drive through Fern Gully begins not far from the downtown - a turn on Milford Road off of the Ocho Rios bypass. The drive is 3 miles or so, or at least that is as far as we went before turning around. It is definitely a drive covered top... More

This 3 mile drive up above Ocho Rios toward kingston and the expressway is a beautiful ride through the rain forest and especially through this unique stretch of many different kinds of ferns, some only found in Jamaica.

Leave resort and go out and see some of Jamaica. We hired a private driver who was great and gave us the history of the places he took us

Nothing much to see. Lots of poverty can be seen in that area. Maybe it would have been better on foot.

Our driver took the route through Fern Gully while on our way to Kingston. It was beautiful, a natural green canopy tunnel with amazingly large ferns. Worth the drive.

Half a mile up the main road from Fern Gully heading south on the right, you will come to a pleasant circular RUM BAR, in the middle of a grassy, rocky, clearing.

The new motorway from Kingston to Ocho Rios cuts out a piece of this gully but you can drive out of town on the old route through this natural fern lined gully, quite twisty and narrow at times, vendors at some pull in points with fresh fruit.
