Why Ochos Rios is Jamaica’s Best Destination

We can’t exactly call Ochos Rios, Jamaica a “hidden gem.”

Located on the north coast in the parish of St. Ann, Ochos Rios is, after all, one of the most prominent cruise ship and resort areas on the island.

But it’s a popular spot for some very, very good reasons. If you want to leave Jamaica feeling like you’ve really experienced the best of the island, then Ochos Rios is the place for you.

Everything is here: from adrenaline-pumping outdoor adventures (including Jamaica’s #1 attraction—the stunning Dunn’s River Falls) to dreamlike beaches, to thriving nightlife set to the rhythm of reggae and complemented by some of the world’s best cocktails.

Not convinced? Here’s why Ochos Rios is a top pick for Jamaica travelers, and why you should consider it, too.
