The Fern Gully is absolutely beautiful. The variety of "Ferns" were amazing and the colors were astonishing. Take lots and lots of pictures when you go. Get a good tour guide that will pull over and stop for the pictures.

Nice but short drive. Some local shops on the way in have kinda crazy and erotic wood carvings, so distract any children in the car. Be sure to eat at the jerk chicken place back near the cruise docks..

This lush and scenic drive is just a short way from the Ocho Rios cruise port. It's definitely worth seeing if you want to experience something authentically Jamaican instead of the usual Caribbean cruise port shopping and Margaritaville. The day we went- March 19th- was...More

Get a "local" taxi, not through the hotel and negotiate your getaway day. This is a lovely ride up a mountainside that is cooling and breath-taking. Pack a lunch from a local stand! A trip I make every visit. The people never forget you. Learn...More

I don't think that "walking" through Fern Gully is too feasible, as it is one of the main roads that locals traverse to get from Ocho Rios to Spanish Town and other locations along the way. Traveling through Fern Gully can... More

Have good time in Ocho Rios! The round trip to Fren Gully will last about 20 minutes. A stop to look at local art( that is, if anyone is exhibiting) might add a few minutes. It is beautiful, but a very short tour. You might... More
