Ocho Rios Jamaica Weather - Posted 5/7/2011

So what's the weather in Ocho Rios today?
There's an 80% chance that it's nice and sunny with a few soft overhead clouds drifting by :-)

But seriously though, the weather in Ocho Rios is typical of the rest of Jamaica.

Except for the 'rainy' months, it's usually sunny, with partly cloudy skies and with a gentle breeze, for the better part of the day.

I can probably say the temperature averages about 31 degrees celcius (87.8F)

In the evenings it gets much cooler with temperatures going down to about 24 degrees celcuis (75F). Can't ask for it much better than that huh?

For more information on the weather in Jamaica (including Ocho Rios), please take at peek on my page on The Jamaican Climate.

By the way, did you know that Ocho Rios is one of the top tourist destinations in Jamaica? It does not have the as much commerce as say Montego Bay or Kingston, nor the popularity of say Negril, but 'Ochie' still warm the hearts of many.

Ocho Rios (and the general Ocho Rios/St. Ann area) also host some of the best tourist attractions in Jamaica.

This includes the Mystic Mountain, Dolphin Cove, and the world famous Dunns River Falls.

Here (below) is an extract from Wikipedia on Ocho Rios, Jamaica, read on...


Ocho Ríos (Spanish for "Eight Rivers") is a town in the parish of Saint Ann on the north coast of Jamaica. Although he landed in many spots along the Jamaican coast, many believe that Christopher Columbus first set foot on land in Ocho Rios. Just outside the city, travelers and residents can visit Columbus Park, where Columbus supposedly first came on land, and see maritime artifacts and Spanish colonial buildings.

It was once a fishing village but now caters to tourists.1 It is a port of call for cruise ships2 as well as for cargo ships loading sugar, limestone, and in the past, bauxite.citation needed Scuba diving and other water sports are offered in the town's vicinity.

The name "Ocho Rios" is a misnomer because there are not eight rivers in the area. It is most likely a British corruption of the original Spanish name "Las Chorreras" ("the waterfalls"),a name given to the village because of the nearby Dunn's River Falls.

The north coast highway from the international airport at Montego Bay to Ocho Ríos has been improved since 2000 and the journey is now an hour and forty five minutes drive. On 26 August, 2011, the Jamaican government announced a $21 million revitalization plan for the resort area.

The town has restaurants, night clubs in Margaritaville and Dolphin Cove, where tourists swim and interact with dolphins.

It is perhaps most notable for its use in Dr No, the very first James Bond film, which was released in 1962. It was the home of Miss Taro, played by Zena Marshall, who was an adversary of Bond (Sean Connery) and in alliance with the main villain Dr Julius No (Joseph Wiseman).
