A large nature preserve protecting the natural state of Jamaica, guests will be able to go on a variety of authentic natural excursions or head to one of the few areas that include amenities when they visit. There is nothing like this space elsewhere on the island, as it is reminiscent of Nigeria, Africa.

The entire park is first and foremost a nature park. No matter where you venture in the park there will be thick vegetation and opportunities to spot wildlife. It sits on 13 acres of land on a hill that was originally a plantation. The remains of the Great House still exist and the oldest swimming pool on the island is here as well. The view from the property is of sugar cane fields and the ocean in the distance.

Guests traveling to Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park will be able to embark on a variety of hiking trips that, if lucky, will take them across waterfalls, sugarcane fields, as well as a variety of Jamaican terrain. Alternatively, guest looking for a more stable adventure can head to the mineral water swimming area that includes a deck, barbecues, and seating areas. Camping is a possibility as well.
