Blue Hole, Ocho Rios

4.7
#2 of 115 in Parks in Jamaica
A turquoise swimming hole in the hills of Ocho Rios, Blue Hole remains a secluded and relatively untouristed hidden gem. Splash and swim to your heart's delight in this refreshing natural pool at the base of a pristine waterfall. The area has few amenities, so bring your own essentials and wear shoes appropriate for uneven terrain. First-time visitors should bring a guide to negotiate the slippery terrain and point out safe (and unsafe) diving spots. While Jamaica's larger tour companies rarely take visitors to this unofficial attraction, many of the smaller local operators offer guided walks that include stops at the waterfall. For Blue Hole and beyond, use our Ocho Rios tour itinerary builder site to get the most from your Ocho Rios vacation.

  • I read the tip here to make sure you do not attract anything from the "guides" when you are almost there. Just drive through until you see the fence and official entrance. Here you can just park without any clue from anyone. Once after the fence you pay 2000 JMD PP and 700 JMD for a safe. Put on your swimwear (there are locker booths) and take a waterproof case for your phone. After payment you will receive a strap and a guide assigned. Really a very nice area and well worth it!!
