Venture onto the back roads of Montego Bay to reach this one-of-a-kind hillside gallery and garden 2,000 feet (610 meters) above sea level. Surrounding an eco-conscious mini-museum run by local artist and art collector Ras Natango is a garden filled with tropical plants and birds, and it offers views of the Jamaican countryside.
Walk the property’s terraced hill and botanical garden to take in the views alongside a litany of colorful flowers, rare plants, and more than 50 species of fern. On your stroll, see as many as 18 species of birds. The gallery boasts a collection—all for sale—of vibrant acrylic paintings by owner and artist Ras Natango and other locals.
