Ocho Rios in detail

Tropical splendour is the best way to describe Ocho Rios. Set on Jamaica's north coast between Montego Bay and Port Antonio, the town is surrounded by breathtaking countryside. 

Shaw Park Gardens sits on a hill above the town. The botanical garden features sparkling cascades, tropical plants and flowers, and many exotic birds. Famed British playwright Noel Coward made his home at a modest but elegant estate called Firefly.
The cottage, perched on a cliff about 17 miles east of Ocho Rios, cannot be compared to the island's grand estates, but it is charming in its own way and filled with personal touches. The house is open to the public. In the neighboring town of Port Maria, there are several historic buildings that are representative of 19th-century island architecture. Also nearby are the Llanrumney Estate and Brimmer Hall.
The Llanrumney Estate belonged to Henry Morgan, a privateer who served as lieutenant-governor. Brimmer Hall is a working plantation open to visitors. A visit to the nearby waters of the Martha Brae, perfect for some lazy river rafting and Dunn's River Falls is a must. Located just west of downtown Ocho Rios, the cool mountain waters plunge 600 feet to smooth limestone beds, then stream under the roadway before mingling with the turquoise Caribbean Sea.
