Things to do

Natural wonders in Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios is packed with amusement areas, where you can try everything from bobsledding to zip lining, but some of the most popular attractions are the region's natural features. At Dunn's River Falls, you can climb up a series of short waterfalls in a single line, while holding the hand of your neighbor on each side, getting soaked in the gushing water along the way. Elsewhere, in the mountains, the Blue Hole is another spot where you should expect to get wet. Head here for the chance to leap into natural swimming pools, formed by a waterfall, amid a lush, green landscape.


Listening to reggae in Ocho Rios

Thanks to its beachfront locale and cruise port, Ocho Rios boasts endless activities, and there are lots of tour providers on hand to take you to the best spots. You can choose your way to get around here, whether on horseback rides along the beachfront, ATV tours through the hills and wilderness or party cruises on catamarans that pause at prime snorkeling spots and waterfalls. Bob Marley tours are popular here, too, and typically include visits to his childhood home while listening to reggae tunes. There are lots of opportunities to get out on the waves, with water activities like jet skiing and paddle boarding easy to come by.


Winter sun in tropical Ocho Rios

The tropical climate in Ocho Rios means warm temperatures in every season, perfect for beach days and snorkeling trips out on the waves. Since summer is the rainy hurricane season, most vacationers choose to come between January and March, when afternoons in the 80s offer a reprieve from the winter weather at home. Since this is a popular time to travel to Jamaica, you'll want to reserve your Ocho Rios vacation rental early to ensure that you secure your ideal dates. Why not plan a visit at the end of fall, when you can take advantage of a brief window between the rains and busy season?
