Ocho Rios Jamaica offers many attractions to check out. The Parish of St. Ann is known as the "garden parish" because of its great beauty. Its parish capital is the market town of St. Ann's Bay. The resort development of this delightful parish, however, has centered round the town of Ocho Rios.
The first thing to check out is the famous Dunn's River Falls, one of Jamaica's most wonderful sights, as well as a national treasure.
Ocho Rios owes much of its fame to Dunn's River Falls, but this is not all that the town has to offer. The Coyaba River Garden and Museum is a small but nice place covering the history of Jamaica.
Another very beautiful attraction is Eden Falls at The Ruins restaurant.
Ocho Rios is also famous for Fern Gully, a rocky gorge of tremendous depth which zig-zags for about four miles from the coast up to the central mountain area of the island. Although it has become rather commercialized in recent years by souvenir vendors, it is still well worth a visit to see the profusion of tropical ferns (over 500 species) and the kind of foliage only to be found in a tropical rain forest. In the deepest parts of the gorge, only faint dapples of sunshine penetrate through the thick foliage and the temperature is about ten degrees cooler.
There are many things to do in Jamaica and activities that offer you a remarkable visit to Ocho Rios. You can have an exciting bobsled ride and zip lining tours within the rain forest of Mystic Mountain.
Ocho Rios also has a wonderful beach for you to enjoy. There is also a very nice small beach right at the foot of the harbor pier that offers good snorkeling, beverages and food.
