Coyaba River Garden and Museum

A wonderful tourist attraction for those who like to stir some culture into their beach getaways, the Coyaba River Garden and Museum is an interesting and enchanting way to spend a couple of hours while on holiday in Ocho Rios. The museum - named after the Arawak word for 'paradise' - houses some important pre-Columbian artefacts and has exhibitions detailing the history of Jamaica, from the days of its original inhabitants the Arawaks, through the trials of colonialism, to the gaining of independence in 1962. Arguably even more worthwhile, however, are the spectacular tropical gardens surrounding the museum, which are also home to the gently-cascading Mahoe Falls. A lush, steamy garden complex, dotted with giant banyan and cedar trees, and natural springs and pools filled with koi fish and turtles, the Coyaba Gardens make for a wonderful daytrip for the entire family. There is also a gift shop on site, where you can buy some choice local products such as carved figurines, coffee and rum.
