On your second day here, indulge your taste buds at Chocolate Dreams Ltd., then don't miss a visit to Fort Charles, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Port Royal, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Trinity Cathedral.

A trip to Ocho Rios, the tourist hub of Saint Ann Parish, offers travelers a staggering amount of activities and cultural attractions.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bob Marley's Mausoleum and Greenwood Great House. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Firefly and Harmony Hall Jamaica. Go for a jaunt from Ocho Rios to Falmouth to see Reggae Walk of Fame and Museum about 1:50 hours away. There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Dunn's River Falls and Park, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, take in the exciting artwork at Harmony Hall Art Gallery, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Ocho Rios trip planner.

Getting from Kingston to Ocho Rios by taxi takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in December, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) to allow time to drive to Treasure Beach.
