Jamaica has three different main areas that we offer all inclusive resorts in.  We have resorts in Montego Bay, Negril and Ocho Rios.  When traveling to Jamaica it’s important to know the difference in these three areas to help decide where might be best for your family to stay.

Ocho Rios
:  In Ocho Rios there is a little down town area with an open air markert for shopping and site seeing.  A lot of cruise ships will arrive into Ocho Rios and drop tourists off for the day.  The most popular excursion/adventure in all of Jamaica is “Dunn’s River Falls.”  Basically Dunn’s River Falls is a natural flowing spring that flows out of the mountian side making slide like formations that are smooth enough to slide down right into the water below.  Many people spend hours at Dunn’s River with their kids.  Ocho Rios is the furthest area from the airport, taking about an hour and a half to get there.  A great family resort in Ocho Rios would be the Sunset Jamaica Grande or the Riu Ocho Rios.  If you are wanting to go with a more upscale adult only property, I highly suggest the Couples Sans Souci resort.
