The Guava River rises just north of the Grand Ridge of the Blue Mountains on the border of Portland Parish in Jamaica.[1] From here it runs east then north and then east again to its confluence with the Rio Grande.[1]

As of 2010 there are no roads or settlements visible anywhere along the river's length on satellite imagery[2] or on the earlier maps.[1]
