Fern Gully, Ocho Rios

3.8
#6 of 16 in Parks in Ocho Rios
Drive through the heart of the rainforest at Fern Gully, a scenic route enclosed by a thick canopy of trees and foliage. Winding for 5 km (3 mi) along a collapsed riverbed, the road offers an up-close look at more than 500 different species of fern, which give it its name. Take a leisurely ride along the route to admire an array of hardwood trees and hanging plants, or get even closer to nature by hiking. Going with your own car makes for an easy trip, though you can also book an organized tour or take a taxi.

Where to stay in Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios Bay Beach and Malards Bay--both hugging the northern coastline--serve as the most popular areas to stay, with an abundance of hostels, hotels, condominiums, and luxury beach resorts jostling for space along the seafront. Look east along Route A3 for a chance to stay at a quieter, less-touristy resort or private rental.
