Thank you all for your answers. I enjoyed my time in Jamaica, though very short. Went to a different Aviary close to Ocho Rios. Will try Rocklands on next trip, with more time.

Could you tell me the cost of the sanctuary visit itself? We have a driver from Half-Moon, but would like to know additional costs in advance. Thanks.
