3- Blue Mountains Peak

Blue Mountain Peak is the highest mountain in Jamaica and one of the highest peaks in the Caribbean at 2,256 metres (7,402 ft). It is the home of Blue Mountain coffee and their famous tours. It is located on the border of the Portland and Saint Thomas parishes of Jamaica.

The Blue Mountains are considered by many to be a hiker’s and camper’s paradise. The traditional Blue Mountain trek is a 7-mile (10 km) hike to the peak and consists of a 3,000-foot (1,000 m) increase in elevation. Jamaicans prefer to reach the peak at sunrise, thus the 3–4 hour hike is usually undertaken in darkness. Since the sky is usually very clear in the mornings, Cuba can be seen in the distance. Some of the plants found on the Blue Mountain cannot be found anywhere else in the world and they are often of a dwarfed sort. This is mainly due to the cold climate which inhibits growth. The small coffee farming communities of Claverty Cottage and Hagley Gap are located near the peak.

 

4 – Bob Sledding – Mystic Mountain

Hold onto your hat: this is one wild ride! Inspired by the famous Jamaica bobsled Olympic team, the Mystic Mountain Bobsled near the Dunn’s River Falls is the park’s signature attraction, ranked by TripAdvisor.com as one of the top attractions in Ocho Rios Jamaica. You’ll be safely strapped into a custom-designed, high-tech sled and whooshed down a 1000-meter long track installed into the side of the mountain, completely driven by gravity: yes, Newton, it really works!

 

5 – Falls – Blue Hole

The Blue Hole and Secret Falls is probably the most sought after tourist attraction in Ocho Rios.

There are many unknown waterfalls in Jamaica, but the secret in Ocho Rios is the most accessible one. Travel east of the Ocho Rios town for approximately 4 miles, pass through local communities and then head into the rural hills until we get to the remote Irie Blue & Secret Falls attraction. The Blue Hole is deep and a lot of fun for good swimmers and divers of all ages. The White River’s blue hazy water adds to the beauty of the surroundings.

 

 

6 – Glistening Waters

Starting at sunset, we begin nightly boat tours of the famous Luminous Lagoon. You will see things that will make you appreciate the beauty Mother nature has created for us to witness and experience! Truly, a sight to be seen! If you’re staying in Jamaica, be sure to book a tour with Glistening Waters.

Plan your tour with us at dusk, enjoy a delicious meal and cocktail at our restaurant first, and then take a boat tour out onto the lagoon. As the boat cruises around, the water is disturbed and the organisms begin to glow. You will see an eerie light show illuminating from the back of the boat and all around from the wake. This tour of the Luminous Lagoon takes approximately 35-40 minutes.

 

7 – Zip Line – Mystic Mountain

Mystic Mountain Rainforest Adventures, one of the top attractions in Jamaica, offers an exciting Jamaica zip line adventure in Ocho Rios. Whisk through the verdant rainforest canopy and glide from one platform to another, while you catch a glimpse of the Dunn’s River Falls near Ocho Rios!

 

8 – River Rafting – Martha Brae

The legend of Martha Brae tells of an old Arawak witch, who lived on the bank of the River Matibereon. Having heard tales of the Arawak gold, Spanish treasure hunters captured the witch to lead them to the treasure. Pretending to comply she led them into a cave, then suddenly disappeared. Frightened, the Spaniards ran out of the cave but the river engulfed them. The witch then changed the course of the river forever. Passed on by mouth the legend of this river still lives on today. 

 

9 – Cliff Diving – Rick’s Cafe

Located on Negril’s West End, these dramatic and soaring cliffs were used as a backdrop for the James Bond film “Thunderball.”

 

10 – The Beach – Doctor’s Cave Beach

It began in 1906 when Dr. Alexander James McCatty generously donated his beach property to found a bathing club in Montego Bay. The Club got its name because it was used by Dr. McCatty and his friends, who were mainly from the medical profession and, at that time they entered the tiny beach through a cave. The cave however, was destroyed by a hurricane in 1932. The water which is crystal clear has a temperature range, winter and summer from 78 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, 22 to 28 Celcius.
