As if the sugary beaches and alluring blue waters were not enough to make Jamaica the perfect location for romance, Ocho Rios brings the added dimension of lush foliage and beautiful waterfalls. The city is part of the parish of St. Ann, fittingly known as the "garden parrish". The vivid colors and breathtaking scenery make this a truly exotic location for weddings, honeymoons, and romantic escapes.
Many resorts cater especially to the romance with spacious pools that almost rival the beautiful beaches, secluded spas, and luxury accommodations. Two popular ones are the Sandals and Couples resorts, which also have locations in other parts of this gorgeous island.
Besides the beaches best for sunbathing and breathtaking sunsets, the area of Ocho Rios also offers great locations for diving and snorkeling. Cruise ships stop at this gorgeous port almost daily, and the resort town accommodates. It offers many shopping centers and restaurants as well as all kinds of activity and entertainment.
Dunn's River Falls is probably the leading attraction in the garden parish with its shockingly cool waters, scenic Jamaican foliage, and stone steps leading to the Caribbean waters. There are miles of beautiful beaches in the area, many attached to the luxurious resorts and other hotels. Ocho Rios might be the perfect place for your next romantic trip. What used to be a small banana and fishing port has since become an exotic Caribbean dream.
