Ocho Rios Cruise Port

Jamaica is known for much more than its Bobsled team! The small town of Ocho Rios is the ultimate gateway to a plethora of sightseeing and cultural experiences on the North Coast of the island. Originally a fishing village, Ocho Rios has grown into a noted port of call for cruise ships and a bustling economy has developed around the influx of tourists.

How to Get to Ocho Rios
The cruise port is located in convenient walking proximity to downtown Ocho Rios, a mid-sized town with six shopping plazas and an abundance of bars and restaurants. The taxi drivers around the pier have a reputation for being very aggressive. Be polite in denying their solicitations, but don’t let them intimidate you.

One Day on Jamaica
Although somewhat tourist congested, you cannot visit the North coast without seeing Dunn’s River Falls, one of the most spectacular waterfalls you will ever see. The Horseback Tour will allow you to enjoy the view from a unique perspective and also takes you along the Caribbean Sea.  

Pay tribute to the iconic film “Cool Runnings” and a fun slice of Jamaica’s recent history, and check out the Bobsled Tour at Mystic Mountain. You control the speed of your sled as you make your way through the Jamaican jungle.

You don’t even need to travel far from port to have a Jamaican adventure! The Green Grotto Caves are located right in Ocho Rios and are full of geologic wonders and subterranean history.

Port Information
The official language of Jamaica is English (with that characteristic accent), and the currencies are the Jamaican Dollar or the US Dollar. Watch out for prostitutes and locals hawking drugs around the pier; oftentimes, they are working for the police to nab unsuspecting tourists.
