We took a cab from our cruise terminal to this attraction on an overcast day, dotted with frequent showers and hit it between showers. They gave us a short (30 minute) tour and we had to wait well over an hour for our cab driver to come back. THERE IS NO WAY OUT OF THERE OTHER THAN TO PRE-BOOK YOUR... More

The Shaw Park Gardens and waterfalls was amazing! This is off the beaten path and no huge crowds to contend with. This was the grounds for a former hotel and now houses an awesome collection of native and non native plants! The waterfall is amazing! guides are also great and show a lot of pride in their garden! Worth the... More

The gardens are in the grounds of an old hotel. They are well maintained and contain an amazing collection of native plants. The guides are knowledgeable and ensure you have a memorable visit

We had a wonderful stroll in this lush, tropical oasis of unique trees, plants, flowers and did not want to leave the garden. This would be a beautiful spot for tropical family or couples portraits if you are able to arrange that ahead of time while visiting. Our friendly guide gave us a tour of the grounds, explained all the... More

We booked this excursion from our cruise ship, never would have thought about going here other wise and what a delightful surprise it was!! The flowers and waterfalls and old buildings are stunning. I can see why many people would want to get married in this park, it's breathtaking. So glad we visisted.

There is a pool one a lower level and if you would like to swim they divert some of the water from the falls to fill the pool. Entry to the garden is $10 each , this includes a... More

The gardens are pretty and the view of Ocho Rios is spectacular, but with the cost of the tour at $40 US for two of us we felt that the guide repeatedly telling us he would accept a tip, was a little out of line. The garden is pretty, but expensive.

This is one of the north coasts most beautiful gardens. so many species of blooms that I'd never seen. and the waterfall was dancing and glittering. they have a lovely rum tasting as well in the hotel so be sure you stop in. the hotel should get better points for this beautiful hidden gem.
