Things to do in Ocho Rios

Zion Bus Line takes passengers on a musical journey to the place where Bob Marley, Jamaica’s most famous native son, was born and raised: the village of Nine Mile in the highlands.

This guided bike trip is a full-day adventure that begins at Hollywell National Park at the crest of the fabled Blue Mountains.

Set in a wonderfully restored Victorian mansion on the eastern outskirts of Ocho Rios, this is the north shore’s top place for both fine art and local crafts.

If you want to survey the local scene, head to Amnesia, which rocks until well past midnight five nights a week. It’s a little rough around the edges, but it’s the best place to dance on the north shore.

This interactive museum and multimedia tribute to Jamaican music tells the story of reggae, ska, rock steady, and other homegrown musical genres.

The longtime polo enclave at Chukka Cove has morphed into Chukka Caribbean Adventures, the undisputed king of outdoor adventure in Jamaica.
