Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Ocho Rios on a half-moon shaped cove in the middle of Jamaica's northern coastline. It was formerly a fishing port and was also known for its banana exports. Now it is a resort town with stunning waterfalls and beaches and interesting colonial-period buildings like the Geddes Memorial Church and the Anglican Church. The town's business and commercial center is Pineapple Place.

When not indulging in the many activities available--horseback riding, polo, golf, tennis, shopping, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, swimming or sunbathing--there are a number of interesting sights worth seeing in the environs of Ocho Rios.

Shopping is very popular in Ocho Rios due to Duty Free.  There are several shopping areas within walking distance from the dock and bargaining with a local may help drop down some prices.

Another favorite attraction is the famous Dunn's River Falls. The falls are great to climb up stream. The Dunn's River Falls have numerous rocks terraces on its way to the sea and a beautiful beach. The stepping stones of the falls allow easy access up and down under a stimulating shower.
