Ahhh...Ras Natango Gallery and Garden is located in the community of Camrose St James.
It boasts a most spectacular view of the city of Montego Bay below.
The business is owned by the Williams family - Ian, Tamika and their son Ayale.
Approved by the Jamaican Tourist Board and TPDCO, it offers a magical experience.
The garden boasts endemic flora and fauna, and is a birders paradise.
Jamaica's national bird (the Dr. bird) is easily seen hovering or posing in the garden.
The garden showcases some of Jamaica's rich heritage.
Ras Natango (Ian Williams) is the creator and resident artist. He is an international acclaimed artist whose work is in over 17 countries of the world.
The Riu Hotels and Half Moon Golf and Country Club own and display many of his paintings.
The gallery boasts fine art based on Jamaican life, culture, flora and fauna.
In addition there is a small gift shop. All items are made on the property providing additional employment for members of the community.
Sit in the Out Post Juice bar and relax as the sweet aroma of lunch or dinner drifts through the air.
We do small weddings and luncheons for a maximum of 50 persons.
Opening hours 10 am - 6 pm Mondays - Fridays. By appointment on weekends.
Entrance to the garden, inclusive of first drink and meal, is US $55 per person.

The proprietors recently submitted a proposal to the JTB to expand this to the entire community, with the goal of employing at least 100 persons directly from within the community.
