A trip to Ocho Rios, the tourist hub of Saint Ann Parish, offers travelers a staggering amount of activities and cultural attractions.
On the 15th (Sun), admire the sheer force of Dunn's River Falls and Park, then stroll around Konoko Falls, then take in the dramatic scenery at Blue Hole, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stop by Jewels & Time Duty Free Jewelers, then take in the natural beauty of Firewater Mineral Healing Spring, then get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and finally trot along with a tour on horseback.

The second largest city in Jamaica, Montego Bay boasts an international airport and a major cruise-line terminal, so it regularly receives a big influx of visitors to the island.
Venture out of the city with trips to YS Falls (in Saint Elizabeth Parish), Bob Marley Museum (in St. Ann's Bay) and Mayfield Falls Jamaica (Original) (in Pennycooke). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Rose Hall Great House, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, play a few rounds at Cinnamon Hill Golf Course, and buy something for everyone on your list at Blue Diamond Shopping Mall.
