Ocho Rios and Negril are the most well known centers for tourist “fun” in Jamaica. Negril is famous for extra long white-sand beaches and “freer living” tourism, while Ocho Rios (“Ochy”) is often called the “fun capital of Jamaica”. There is a large number of “places to see and things to do” within much less than a one-hour drive from Ochy. The photos below give you a virtual tour of Ochy scenes.

To the left is a major centre-town intersection, and to your right you are just outside the farmer's market.


You approach the very old (now unused) town clock to your left above, and you are inside the farmer's market to the right. The latter is patronized very largely by local folk.


Here are two of the brilliant views you get by going up into the hills just outside Ocho Rios. Click on each thumbnail to get a close-up view.
