Ocho Rios Activities & Excursions
Planning your vacation to a Caribbean island and wondering where to go? Why not try Jamaica, known as a great vacation destination for visitors, returning residents, and locals. Packed with exciting and fun filled places to go, Jamaica offers a calming and tranquil alternative to have you basking in paradise.
From the moment you set foot on our shores you are sure to feel pampered; whether you decide to visit the upbeat capital city of Kingston, the tourist capital of Montego Bay, or the ultra-relaxing city of Negril. If your preference is to discover more about the warmth of the people and the country side, South Coast is an ideal location. The atmosphere, beaches, music, people, sunshine and food, will all put you in a daze which may result in you forgetting any worries or stress. Whilst Montego Bay is the main tourist capital of Jamaica and, Negril, Falmouth and Kingston are all great places to have a wonderful time, nowhere beats Ocho Rios when it comes to diversity in attractions!
Ocho Rios, or ďOcheeĒ as it is known locally, has experienced explosive growth over the last decade that only a few people can recall the sleepy fishing village, bauxite port and stream-laced nirvana that once existed. Today, Ocho Rios is a high density town of concrete hotels, condominium complexes, office blocks, and shopping centers, but still a favorite cruise ship port in the Caribbean. Surrounded by many attractions there is always something to do in Ocho Rios. As part of Couples Resorts all inclusive trips some included tours in Ocho Rios:
