Ocho Rios Delight
Ocho Rios or "Ochi" in local parlance a sleepy fishing village turned "Mecca" for the lovers of sea, sand and sun, has carved its importance as a place to visit to be regarded as a "been there done that" traveler. And with good reasons... Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove, Irie Blue Hole and Mystic Mountain, along with the experience of just being here in Jamaica, the "land of Reggae and Bob Marley are a few of the reasons why each year thousands flock to this beautiful bay. "Ochi" is not just for visitors, as Dunn's River Falls the town's premiere attraction is a favorite spot for Jamaican's from all walks of life.
So Much to See and Enjoy
But there is more than sea and sand to "Ochi"; from the days of old to modern times, the seaport has been a place of significance for Jamaica; The Battle of Rio Nuevo to the east determined that we would be English and not Spanish; Pirates like (sir) Henry Morgan ensured continued British Sovereignty in the West Indies. Not far from "Ochi" are the birth places of popular national heroes, the great Pan-Africanist, Marcus Mosiah Garvey and Reggae Superstar, Bob Marley who have given global prominence and permanence to the identity that is Jamaican. "Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior...."
