Ocho Rios is a Jamaican travel destination that offers more than just the usual resort getaways of lush tropical jungles and pristine beaches (though, honestly, these are splendid in their own rights). Ocho Rios was the first Jamaican town to be developed as a resort, and so it abounds with duty free stores, bars, clubs, and otherwise visitor-oriented commercial escapes. And while this might slake some traveler’s thirst, there’s more adventure to be had in Ocho Rios.
Ocho Rios is couched in amazing tropical diversity. With such an abundant ecosystem at its disposal, there are a great many wonderful outdoor activities in Ocho Rios. Here are some of the best options.

Take a canopy tour -  Ocho Rios lies on the doorstep of Jamaica’s tropical jungle. Strap yourself safely into this harness and whiz through the treetops at unbelievable height and speed. A complete rush yet completely safe, a canopy tour (aka zip-lining) is a great way to spend some quality time outdoors in Ocho Rios.
ATV Safari – Little is as exciting as whipping yourself around the dusty bend on a jungle ATV safari adventure. You’ll cross rivers, splash through mud, and explore the best avenues of the Jamaican jungle on this adventure.

Horses on the Beach
– Who doesn’t dream of riding horses along an abandoned beach? While others are out whiling the day away, you can be galloping through the shallows on Black Beauty – or something similar. An adventure and history lesson in one, you’ll learn about the history of Jamaica as your guide takes you on some of the most special horse trails on the island.

Swim, Hold, and Feed the Sharks – This amazing experience lets you get up-close and personal with the most feared underwater creatures known to man. Swim alongside these creatures of the deep, hold them, and even feed them in this exciting and enlightening experience particular to Ocho Rios.
