Konoko Falls, located at the Shaw Park Estate in Ocho Rios, St Ann, Jamaica could easily be among the reasons that St Ann was named the garden parish. Set in the hills of the former Coyaba Gardens, its lush vegetation, calming waters, and scores of indigenous flowering plants make you want to forget you have a home to return to once you sample its delights.
The new name - Konoko - is the Arawak word for rainforest, and now it’s also the name of the newly recreated haven for both visitors and locals to retreat to for relaxation, students to study, take a journey through Jamaica’s historic past, or simply to enjoy nature’s bounty.
