Posted on 22nd Feb 2015 @ 10:05 PM

Ocho Rios (Spanish for “eight rivers”) is a former fishing village and was the first town in Jamaica to be specifically developed as a major tourist destination. Ocho Rios has a vast number of duty-free shops, restaurants, night clubs, and craft markets, which allows tourists to experience the country without straying too far from the comforts and conveniences of home. Moreover, Ocho Rios has some of the most stunningly beautiful sightseeing and adventure tour spots in Jamaica, such as Dunn’s River Falls, the White River, and the Blue Hole Secret Falls. Read on to learn more about our top 5 places to visit in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. 


1. The Blue Hole Secret Falls is rated #1 on TripAdvisor for activities to do in Ocho Rios, Jamaica for a reason, as it is a stunningly beautiful, unique and refreshing, off the beaten path Jamaica adventure tour where you can swim, jump, and swing like Tarzan from ropes into the blue crystalline water at the bottom of the falls. In addition, there are also tunnels underneath the falls if you don’t want to jump or swing off of them. And your Jamaica Tourist Board certified tourist guide will make sure that you are completely safe throughout the tour; as well as take your photo too, if you wish!

4. Dunn’s River Falls

Dunn’s River Falls is another extremely popular tourist destination for people visiting Jamaica. However, due to the amount of vast amount of people that visit the falls from the cruiseship port in Ocho Rios, you will want to go on a day when not a lot of cruise ships are docked at the port, so that you can miss out on the huge crowds at Dunn’s River Falls. Nonetheless, Dunn's River Falls is one Jamaica adventure tour you will not want to miss while you are visiting the island.
