Things to Do

Shaw Park Garden And Waterfall

Shaw Park Garden And Waterfall

 

Jamaica’s interior beauty includes several botanical gardens. Shaw Park, located in Ocho Rios’ surrounding hillside at up to 800 feet above sea level, is a great stop for families, with a large waterfall cascading through, gorgeous flower gardens and plenty of picnic space. When you want to get away from the heat and chaos of downtown Ocho Rios, head up to the hills and relax here. It’s a US$10 entrance fee and the park is open during regular business hours.

Fern Gully

Fern Gully

One of the most romantic drives in Jamaica takes you just outside Ocho Rios and onto the A3 highway, through “Fern Gully”: a stunning three-mile gorge surrounded by sky-scraping, 30-foot fern trees. You’ll feel as if you’re on a completely different island as you pass through this natural, green tunnel, once a riverbed. Pull off to the side where possible to stop and take in the views, and even a walk. Because this is a road often taken by visitors and is one of Jamaica’s natural wonders, there are vendors lining up the road, but not so many that it spoils the view. Keep an eye on the road at all times—there might be a man on leaf-adorned stilts appearing before you. Never a dull moment in Jamaica.

Irie River Park

Irie River Park

The newly reopened and family-run Irie River Park is a stunning 103 acres of rainforest, flowers, and gardens with pimento and ackee trees, through which a jade river and small waterfall flow. It’s a dreamy spot for a daytime swim and picnic (US$10 entry), away from the tourist crowds yet a five-minute drive uphill from the main road in downtown Ocho Rios.

H’evan’s Scent Limited-Ocho Rios

H’Evans Scent was the first attraction to bring zip-lines to Jamaica. Since then, they have grown to have multiple lines all set amidst the mountains of their luscious location. Whether you want a short sharp scare, a gentle soar or something that will make you scream (with joy), they have got you covered. The 5 Zip-lines (including the longest in the island) are all designed to help you soar through the mountains of Jamaica. H’Evans Scent is home to Paintsplat, Jamaica’s first (and best) paintball experience, with top of the line markers, 3 themed fields and enough paintballs to paint the island. Every day, the chefs cook authentic Jamaican food, from Jerk Chicken and Festival, to Escoveitch Fish served in a Calabash lined with palm leaves to share with guests.
