This unique destination in the heart of Jamaica was once an empty stretch of land that a wealthy accountant and art collector purchased only to preserve its stunning view. In 2009, Ahhh…Ras Natango Gallery and Garden, a unique collection of this businessman’s paintings and other art works became the perfect place to see the beauty of both nature and art in a single place.
Visitors who venture into the back roads of Jamaica in search of Ahhh will find a well-kept garden and hillside terrace that’s perfect for walking, wandering and exploring. Colorful tropical flowers, brilliant orchids, rare plants and indigenous flora are proudly displayed in this beautiful natural landscape. Guests will likely spot some of the 18 species of Jamaican birds that call Ahhh home on a visit to this gallery and garden. And while the outdoor beauty is something to behold, the collection of paintings in the gallery are also worth checking out. Since most are for sale, travelers can even take home a piece of the island.
Travelers can journey to Ahhh on their own, but guided tours that include round-trip hotel transport, welcome drinks and time at the garden and gallery offer up a hassle-free way to see this top attraction.
Ahhh…Ras Natango Gallery and Garden is located at 1 Ras Natango Way in Jamaica’s Camrose District. Travelers staying at hotels in Montego Bay can travel here via one of the park’s free shuttles.
Island entry includes a complimentary drink and is US$35. Lunch, water and other beverages are available for purchase at an additional cost.
