Day 192 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Entertainment and Endangered Species: Konoko Falls and Parks

Konoko Falls

There are many attractions in St. Ann, but Konoko Falls and Parks is becoming a one of the parish’s favorite “secrets.” Popular with cruise ship passengers, the attraction, which was formerly called Coyaba Gardens, is located in the hills of Shaw Park. It features an 80-foot waterfall and lush tropical vegetation. The environment provides a sanctuary for a number of Jamaica’s endangered species, including the coney, which had been thought to be extinct. Visitors have the chance to learn about many other unique animals of Jamaica here too, including the Jamaican yellow boa snake, iguanas, and many species of birds. Don’t miss Yassi Lookout Point, which was named about Don Cristobal Yassi, a Spanish Governor. Many visitors have left inscriptions to mark their visits here.

In case you missed any of the past “365 Things to Do, See and Eat in Jamaica“, here they are all together.
