Ocho Rios

— 5 nights
A trip to Ocho Rios, the tourist hub of Saint Ann Parish, offers travelers a staggering amount of activities and cultural attractions.
Escape the urban bustle at Dunn's River Falls and Park and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Coyaba River Garden and Museum and Spas. Change things up with these side-trips from Ocho Rios: St. Jago De La Vega Cathedral (in Spanish Town), Bob Marley Museum (in St. Ann's Bay) and Blue Mountain Peak (in Blue Mountains National Park). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Blue Hole and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

The third most populous English-speaking country in the Americas, Jamaica remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, with the British monarch its official head of state. Jamaica tourism thrives thanks to the island nation's reputation for natural beauty, outstanding cuisine, and lively music scene. The country's landscape is as diverse as its population, its tropical climate supporting varied ecosystems that include everything from savannahs to rugged mountain slopes. For most visitors, a holiday in Jamaica is a largely outdoor affair, with hiking, fishing, golfing, camping, snorkeling, horseback riding, and kite surfing among the most popular things to do.
