Situated in the parish of St. Ann on Jamaica’s North Coast, Ocho Rios is a resort area with a cruise ship port and 5-star hotels surrounded by rainforests, rivers and waterfalls.

Because of this, Ocho Rios has plenty of things to see and plenty of attractions to visit. Here is a list of the top 5 things to do in Ocho Rios curated by Ocho Rios Authentic Tours.


  1. Dunn’s River Falls

    Located just outside of Ocho Rios, Dunn’s River Falls is without a doubt Jamaica’s most well-known tourist attraction. Dunn’s Falls is a 600ft waterfall that is layered in hundreds of stone steps. The best way to climb the falls is with a fall guide who will help you up the falls and show you secret caves that you may miss.

    Dunn’s River Falls is the only one of its kind in the Caribbean and is a great showcase of Jamaica’s beauty. After climbing the falls, you can enjoy the nature park situated on the premises or enjoy a nice Jamaican lunch. This attraction is perfect for the entire family.

  2. Blue Hole (Island Gully Falls)

    Blue Hole is located in the hills of Jamaica just outside of the resort town of Ocho Rios. Although not as renown as Dunn’s River Falls, it is one of the top attractions in Ocho Rios.

    Blue Hole consists of two sections, the main Blue Hole with turquoise waters and Tarzan swings for you to jump in, and a waterfall section that is just a short walk from the Blue Hole. If you are look for a nature day-trip, then Blue Hole is the perfect getaway for you.

  3. Mystic Mountain

    Mystic Mountain is yet another top-rated attraction in Ocho Rios. Located in the heart of a rainforest rising 700ft above sea level and stretching over 100 acres, Mystic Mountain is the #1 “Green” things to do in Ocho Rios.

    Mystic Mountain gives visitors a chance to explore a tropical ecosystem while taking part in 4 thrilling activities such as the Sky Explorer, Bobsled ride, Canopy Zip Line and Mystic Waterslide.

    In addition, there is a cultural museum where you can learn more about Jamaica’s history and an infinity pool high above the town of Ocho Rios where you can chill-out and relax making it a must see attraction.

  4. White River Tubing

    White River Tubing is a refreshing water adventure located at White River, just outside of Ocho Rios. This attraction features a fresh body of water surrounded by lush tropical scenery.

    The journey takes you down a section of the White River and is a sight to behold! If you are looking for something to do in Ocho Rios that is off the beaten track, this one is for you.

  5. Ocho Rios Garden Tour

    The Ocho Rios Gardens tour features a visit to some of the most beautiful locales in Ocho Rios: the Turtle River Garden, Shaw Park Garden and the Konoko Falls and Park.
