Ocho Rios, Jamaica, 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 well-known port of call for cruise ships with its bustling economy surrounding the port.

Most shore excursions from Ocho Rios head for the north coast. Popular day tour destinations include the terraced Dunn’s River Falls, which visitors can climb in the company of a guide for views over the surrounding area. Horseback riding tours allow travelers to enjoy the Caribbean Sea while learning about marine life and the ecosystem. Cruisers can pay tribute to the iconic film Cool Runnings by checking out the bobsled and rain forest canopy chair lift ride at Mystic Mountain. Ocho Rios’ Green Grotto Caves are full of geologic wonders and subterranean history, and the nearby Blue Hole is a popular stop for its azure waters and rock formations. Other Ocho Rios shore excursions include water sports such as river rafting and tubing, catamaran cruises, and kayaking outings.
