Jamaica’s tropical trees and flowers surround a colonial-style home at the Coyaba River Garden and Museum, backed by stupendous views of the Ocho Rios harbor. Water is one of the main features of the gardens, with tumbling streams and the Mahoe Falls.
With plenty to do, you can choose to sip locally grown coffee in the cool courtyard cafe, take a guided tour of the gardens, have a swim in the falls, and even shop for local crafts in the courtyard boutique.
The site also has a small museum exploring the history of Jamaica’s original inhabitants, the Arawaks and Tainos.
The Coyaba River Garden and Museum are a five-minute drive west of Ocho Rios along Milford Road.
