Ocho Rios is a port town on the north coast of Jamaica. A former fishing village, it’s now a resort with a cruise ship harbor and a busy bay beach that’s lined with hotels. The surrounding parish of Saint Ann is home to rainforest, rivers and waterfalls. Dunn’s River Falls is a terraced, 180m mountain waterfall with lagoon pools, surrounded by trees.
Jamaica Grande Beach is ideal and you can try parasailing here.
Ocho Rios has a beautiful tropical climate with an average annual temperature of 29° C.
Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay are located in the heart of the north-coast region defined by fern-clad cliffs and cascading waterfalls. It has abundant rainfall, verdant landscapes, rolling hills, and jagged estuaries.
Discovered in 1494 by Columbus and was colonized but never created much interest. Ocho Rios, Eight Rivers in English does not have eight rivers in town as you would assume. When the British fought against the Spanish in 1657, they misunderstood the Spanish word las chorreros, meaning river rapids, for Ocho Rios, which sounded close enough.
One of the island’s best-known natural attractions is Dunn’s River Falls, a dramatic 183 m drop of cascading water. A highlight of any trip to Ocho Rios is a careful climb up its limestone tiers, followed by a swim at the beach below.
