Part of the Parish of St. Ann and located at an hour and a half drive from Montego Bay, on Jamaica’s north coast, is Ocho Rios, Jamaica’s quintessential tourist destination, along with Negril and Montego Bay.
The Ocho Rios area is known as the ‘garden of the parish’, due to its exuberant tropical flora and fauna. A landscape composed of majestic waterfalls, zigzagging rivers and beautiful white sand beaches
Although nowadays it is on the map of many travelers, “Ochie”, as the locals affectionally call it, has exploded from a small fishing village to a world-class tourist destination, capable of rivaling any other in the Caribbean. Duty-free shopping, many restaurants, off-the-beaten-path tours and attractions, port-of-call for cruise ships, ideal for watersports and scuba diving and so much more.
