Ocho Rios

A reggae lover’s paradise, a nature enthusiast’s sanctuary or a souvenir collector’s dream: “Ochi,” as the locals call it, can mean many things.

Ocho Rios is more than just a popular cruise ship port; it’s a mesmerising, colourful town with a variety of offerings. Developed around a postcard-worthy crescent beach in the surrounding parish of St. Ann, the town and nearby districts boast breathtakingly lush vegetation and a varied landscape of magnificent mountains and impeccable beaches. It makes an excellent base for active travellers who wish to explore the north coasts and partake in myriad adventures such as waterfall climbing, zip line tours, horseback riding and scuba diving.

Back to Nature
With major development being concentrated mainly around one short central roadway, Main Street, the untainted natural landscape of Ocho Rios and its environs lends itself to exploration and adventure. For this reason, Ocho Rios is a nature lover’s paradise.

Rainforest Adventures at Mystic Mountain offers visitors several expeditions that delve into the diverse ecosystem of the mountainside. Their signature attraction is the Bobsled Ride, an exhilarating journey through the mountain at top speeds. The Rainforest Sky Explorer soars way above the trees, where guests can overlook the sweeping mountainside and all of Ocho Rios as they journey to the peak of Mystic Mountain. Though the chairlift moves slowly, the sheer height can take your breath away. Yet another means of exploration, the Rainforest Zip Line Canopy Tour is not for the faint of heart but is sure to leave a lasting impression on the adventurer who flies through the treetops. Another way to take full advantage of the view is by speeding down a 246-foot water slide and splashing into an infinity pool.

From way up high to down below, the Green Grotto Caves offer the perspective of life underground. The main features of the Green Grotto Caves are their large rock formations, their distinct ceiling pockets and covert waterways.

When it comes time to relax, tranquil Ocean Spa at Jamaica Inn harnesses Mother Nature’s bounty, featuring treatments drawn from plants sourced by local farmers and gathered by environmentally sustainable methods.

Top Attractions
The most famed of Ocho Rios’ outdoor attractions is undoubtedly Dunn’s River Falls. Each day, guides lead many visitors on a climb up and down the waterfall, which is surrounded by gorgeous flora and, at its foot, flows into the sea and adjoins a beach where visitors may relax, get a bite to eat or shop for souvenirs.

Near Dunn’s River Falls is Dolphin Cove, which has a natural cove and is surrounded by five acres of tropical rainforest. Considered the Caribbean’s number one attraction, here animals don’t just put on a show for you but want to play one-on-one, inviting adventurers of all ages to swim and interact with them. Whilst its main offering is swimming and interacting with dolphins, Dolphin Cove also showcases the Caribbean’s one and only Night Dolphin and Shark Extravagant Show in the ocean. There is also a water slide, bird feeding, swimming with stingrays and a nature trail.

YAAMAN, Adventure Park at Prospect offers several unique tours out of Prospect Estate, an 18th-century estate featuring a great house and acres upon acres of lush Jamaican vegetation. Visitors can choose to tour the grounds via Segway, horseback, tractor-drawn open-air carriage or even on a camel. Thrill seekers can get their adrenaline rush during the exciting Wet N Dirty Outback Adventure on quick, two-seater dune buggies. You’ll be treated to flying mud and a bumpy ride as you twist and turn your way through hidden trails.

Chukka Caribbean Adventures organises lots of exciting tour experiences, including horseback rides, ATV tours, catamaran cruises and more. For even more Jamaican experiences ranging from the relaxing to the adventurous, Ocho Rios has a host of other popular and reliable tour companies, including Island Routes and Jamaica Tours.
