When you approach a body of water for a swim one of the first things you notice is the hue of its color. The murkier the water, the less satisfying your potential swim may be. Well, at The Blue Hole in Ocho Rios you will likely break into a dead sprint after seeing the inviting color that has earned it such a literal name. Your community pool will forever be a disappointing venture.

As you ride into the interior of the island, you may think we are kidnapping you. Not so! Enjoy the colorful contrasts between townships as you make your way towards a less commercial part of the island where a little paradise has been discovered. This is not for ninnies, as you will find that just the stairway down to the water is a 'trip' in itself. Try to keep your eyes on the irregular steps rather than on the gorgeous scene opening up to you. It is truly a jungle scenario and you will feel a little like Tarzan as you tackle the rest of this adventure.

At the Blue Hole you will have the chance to cannon ball in from 30-foot cliffs around the waters edge or massage your back under the nearby waterfall. These clean blue waters are instinctively inviting, no matter your age a bottled sense of excitement will uncork with every jump or backstroke. For the especially adventurous grab hold of the Tarzan swing for an ultimate splash into the waters below.

Since this location is a bit away from the standard locales we'll escort you back to civilization for a stop at the Ocho Rios Margaritaville restaurant and beach. Here you will have access to beach chairs, water slides, water trampolines and a full restaurant/bar. Soak in a little more of life in the Caribbean before heading back to the cruise ship.
