By Viator, June 2014

5 92 Reviews | Add your review

Once a tiny fishing village, Ocho Rios is now a lively tourist hub and a must visit long-weekend getaway. Here are some ideas on how to make the most of your stay in this charming place.

Day 1: History and Heritage

Immerse yourself in Ocho Rios’ rich history with the Heritage Beach Horse Ride Tour. Begin by traveling to the north coast of Jamaica where you will visit Seville Great House and Heritage Park. Learn about the Taino Indians as you browse a collection of artifacts. Soak in the scenery as you ride by castles, sugar factories and archeological excavations dating back 500 years.

Upon arrival at the beach you will be treated to some fine local produce before wading into the waves on horseback. The return journey will take you past deserted beaches and mangroves, the remains of an 18th century warehouse and an ancient waterwheel that once powered a sugar mill plantation.

Day 2: Musical Memories

Feel the Jamaican’s passion for music on the Zion Bus Tour as your driver-guide captivates you with stories about the legendary Bob Marley. Enjoy a traditional meal at the local Jerk Center before heading on to Nine Mile, the birth and final resting place of the reggae legend. The package also includes a scenic tour of rural St. Ann.

Day 3: Adrenaline, Anyone?

Start your day off with the Irie Adventure Tour.  Afterward, relax as you make your way down the serene Martha Brae River on a bamboo raft. Your tour ends at the world famous Dunn's River Falls. Alternatively you may spend your last day in Ocho Rios interacting with some special sea creatures in the swim, hold and feed the sharks program or one of a kind dolphin encounter.
