Ocho Rios


Jamaican city

Ocho Ríos is a town in the parish of St Ann on the north coastal area of Jamaica. Despite that he landed in numerous areas along the Jamaican coast, a large number of people believe that Christopher Columbus first set foot on soil in Ocho Rios. Precisely outside the city, tourists and residents are able to visit Columbus Park, the location where Columbus reportedly first came on land, and see maritime artifacts in addition to Spanish colonial structures. It had been once a fishing village but these days accommodate tourists.

It serves as a port of call for cruise ships and for cargo ships loading sugar, limestone, and in the past, bauxite. Scuba diving along with additional water sporting activities are offered in the town's community. The name "Ocho Rios" is a misnomer considering that there are not eight rivers in the community. It is extremely likely a British corruption of the authentic Spanish name "Las Chorreras" (“the waterfalls”), a name passed on to the village as a consequence of the nearby Dunn's River Falls.
