Also known as the “Garden Parish” because of its lush vegetation and beautiful flowers, St. Ann is the birthplace of 2 Jamaicans of international fame, civil rights pioneer Marcus Garvey and Reggae music superstar Bob Marley!

As the name suggests, Ocho Rios is said to be fed by eight rivers and is a nature lover’s paradise with gardens, caves, old forts and white sand beaches combining to create some very romantic settings.

Speaking of romance, contact us help arranging a trip for two to the Bob Marley Nine Mile Museum – birth place and resting place of the “King of Reggae”, where you can still see the single bed he sang of in “Is This Love”!

Destination Profile
& Tourism Highlights

Located in the Jamaica’s largest parish, St. Ann, Ocho Rios offers a variety of activities from watersports to horseback riding to zipline canopy rides.

Other Ocho Rios attractions include Fern Gully, located in the remains of an old river bed, the Dover Motorsports Racetrack, and of course, world famous Dunn’s River Wateralls where you can climb 600 feet to the top of Jamaica’s most popular attraction!

Adjacent to Dunn’s River Falls is Cove, a popular aquarium and pool where you can see tropical fish, stingrays and eels, swim with bottlenose dolphins, or, the more adventurous, touch and feed sharks.

Higher up the Ocho Rios hillside is “Blue Hole”, a tropical escape formed from a tributary of the large Rio Ocho Rios (St. Ann), JamaicaNuevo river, that cascades into several small pools, finally ending in the much larger and deeper Blue Hole.

In St. Ann, you can also take the Jerk Seasoning tour the Walkerswood Plant, a 200 person, environmentally-conscious local farmer’s co-op dedicated to providing irrigation and jobs for the community and home of the world famous, tongue-searing Walkerswood jerk sauces, marinades and seasonings!
