Arrived Ochos Rios midday by overland bus from Kingston - nice bus and trip with the road very narrow and mountainous. I have no idea how the driver did it. The hand on the horn approaching every corner had a very clear message - get out of the way.
With a cruise ship in the harbour on arrival I knew we were going to be up against it (crowds) when visiting the Dunne's River Falls; didn't count on the whole of Jamaica starting school holidays two days earlier than scheduled. On the bright side we were able to get lost among the crowd to not be too much prey to the ever present souvenir hawkers.
The falls climb was good although Lesia was not so sharing in my enthusiasm.
The cruise ship left allowing us (we thought) to have the whole beach to ourselves the next day. It was short lived; by 10am the locals began moving in - they know how to enjoy themselves.
The accommodation, position and excellent weather has made Ochy a great stay.
