Ocho Rios, on Jamaica’s north coast, is a busy cruise ship port and a base for northern Jamaica’s outdoor fun. Day trippers pour from the cruise terminal each day, hustling to swim with dolphins, retrace the footsteps of Bob Marley in Nine Mile or climb iconic Dunn’s River Falls. Because of this, Ocho Rios tends to feel touristy and unauthentic, filled with souvenir shops and tour operators. Avoid the disembarkation area and explore the lush landscape that surrounds the town.
