I've been here a few times over the last decades and I am never disappointed. If you are a nature and botanical gardens lover- definitely make time to go to this attraction, a short drive from Negril. Great variety, boardwalks well-maintained, few but well-informed staff.

We drove over an hour from downtown Negril trying to find this place. Finally gave up. On the way back hit one pothole with two tires. The good news is the Jamaicans are the friendliest, most honest people in the world and 45 minutes later...More
