Ocho Rios is definitely the area to stay in if you like activities, and lots of things to do when visiting a destination!
If you are a beach bum, and all you want to do is relax on the beach then check out this post, ‘The Best Beaches in Jamaica’ or ‘The Best Beaches in the Caribbean’.
Ocho Rios offers the famous Bob Marley Tours, Bamboo River Rafting, Jamaican Bobsledding, River Tubing, Blue Lagoon, Dolphin Experiences, Dunn’s River Falls, Swamp Safaris, Horse back riding, Zip Lining, ATV’s, Catamaran Cruises, Luminous Lagoon, and much more!
Keep in mind you will need to travel about 1 1/2 hours to get to Ocho Rios from the airport (Montego Bay MBJ Sangster airport). BUT once you are there, you do not need to travel far to get to all of these activities.
You can also stay in Montego Bay and access many of these tours, but you will have a longer transfer.
