About the The Hill Gardens, Cinchona

At an altitude of between 4,500 and 5,500 ft. in the hills of St. Andrew is Cinchona Botanical Gardens. Established in 1868, Cinchona is the only garden of its type in the Caribbean. In its early years, Allen Eyre commented that only the slopes of the Volcan Chiriqui of Panama offers anything comparable for majestic loveliness.
