Ocho Rios Highlight Tours
Ocho Rios is a favourite vacation destination for visitors and locals alike. What
was once a small, rural fishing village is today one of the major centres of Jamaica’s tourism. The English
translation of the name Ocho Rios is eight rivers, but the name is actually a corruption of the Spanish words,
"las chorreras", or " cascades". As such, while visitors sometimes feel misled expecting to see eight rivers
running through town, their minor disappointment is more than offset by the fact there are more than eleven
rivers and more than twenty waterfalls in the area, most of them located along the north coast road on the
western end of the town.
The largest and most famous of the waterfalls is Dunn's River Falls, where adventurous spirits can climb up over
600 feet of thundering cascades. Other remarkable cataracts can be found at the Shaw Park Gardens, the Ruins
Restaurant, Llandovery, Laughing Waters, and at the mouth of the White River.
Below are combination tours of the many places you can visit while stopping over from a cruise or staying in any of
the resorts from Runaway Bay in the West to Oracabessa in the East.
Please feel free to make special requests for any other combination of your choice.
