When moving here you would have to learn how to adjust very quickly because here is hectic. It’s a moderate size city with lots of places to go and the odds of being lost is 1-5. Our city is filled with a lot of excitement for no reason sometimes and you will find that you fit in very quickly without any pressure.

Ocho Rios is a beautiful tourist city. The town and the beaches will be busy and saturated with outsiders. It is indeed beautiful and provides a close getaway from day to day life. The price will be higher than in a regular city because it is a tourist town.

Someone moving to Ocho Rios would want to know the tourist areas. For example Margaritaville. The other areas could restaurants and beaches which are very popular for most tourists in my city. There is also the craft market that is also very engaging to most of the visitors in my city.

Ocho Rios is home to the world-renown Dunn’s River Falls. It also has some of the most beautiful all-inclusive hotels. The natives are friendly and very accommodating. We have restaurants that serve a wide variety of foods: trying our Jamaican dishes would be a very delectable and awesome experience as variety of flavor would encapsulate your taste buds.
