great spot for a drive out of Kingston to have a picnic in a very natural setting. commune with nature and have a picnic in the fresh air. Bird watch, photo ops, leisure walks or hard hiking are all possible. Road is Rough but easy to follow. take it slow and stop along the way make it an adventure.

I have toured Holywell National Park many times. Traveled by certified tour buses and driving solo. Getting to Holywell is a tour unto itself. The Journey is long winding and scenic. It is pleasurable an romantic especially being on a tour bus with a highly experienced tour guide. When you get to the Park you will be briefed about the... More

If you're looking for a relaxing day spent in the mountains I'd definitely recommend spending some time at Holywell. We weren't sure the best way to get here by public transportation but we were able to take a mini bus from Papine - the driver dropped us at the Rose Hill Estate junction (a little out of the way of...

I have no problems with Holywell itself, infact it's great. The road TO GO to holywell is long, windy and in very bad shape, but even cars can make it. Once you get into holywell, it's a different story. These are dirt roads that ungulate, like mini mountains. Cars will find this extrmely difficult to reach certain spots. If not,... More

The Blue Mountain and John Crow Park is a stunning place. The drive is along a curling road gripping the mountainside, and each turn offers another view of beauty. Lots of places to stop on the way to stop and chat, buy some fruit or a drink. The road passes through the army barracks, never have I been so envious... More

If you are looking for an escape from the Kingston heat, a trip to Holywel is well recommended! The park has several gazebos with benches if you need to be under cover. Some have small BBQ pits that appear to be meant for cooking, however many are without adequate grills. The trails are special. Walks through true nature, with only... More

If you are looking for a place to get away from the business of the city then Holywell Park is the place to go. In the mountains of Jamaica this place is a hidden gem, the view is amazing, the air is fresh and the vegetation is unbelievable. Great place for camping and hiking. There are also park rangers that... More
