Create an itinerary including Blue Hole
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.

  • Went to Blue Hole for the first time with my family & it was an amazing experience! I went twice as I was in Jamaica. We had the best tour guide ever. Ask for Coco when you get there. 🙌🏾🙌🏾 He was very attentive to my families needs throughout the entire time & made us feel calm even though most of us were scared to jump from the falls. Also provided clear instructions on what to do to ensure safety. He gave my sister and I a limestone bath which makes your skin nice and soft! If you don’t want to do something, he doesn’t force you. Make sure to bring cash with you, as there are small shops throughout the falls, wear swim shoes and at the end, tip your tour guide well for their great service! It was definitely a nice experience and a nice time to cool off in the hot Jamaica sun! Remember to ask for Coco the tour guide!
  • My adventurous teenagers loved the blue hole jumping. Beautiful spot, safe and trustworthy guides. Take cash to buy souvenirs, beers along the trail and fresh local jerk chicken. Water shoes are a must so take them too. We had to buy some which ate up all our extra cash so go prepared.
  • The Blue Hole was the best experience I had in Jamaica. The tour guide Brennon was very courteous, careful and informative (was recommended to me by a Trini who visited before) The place was breathtaking. The rivers, waterfalls, the Blue Hole 😍 everything wow. I even got a mud bath from mud that the tour guide got from behind the waterfalls. Also note, "I took the jump" I did it afraid 😃
  • This is a must. Ask for TJ the tour guide. He was amazing. He also gave me the mud which makes your skin so smooth and I brought it back home with me. Of course we tipped generously.
  • This is the best ' Blue Hole' in Jamaica! The staff are wonderful & welcoming. They have experienced swimmers for those that need assistance, and even had a guy who dove in the water and found a ladies iPhone that she dropped in the water🤯😮 Ask for Trinii, she has the best sale items & brownies😉. Trinii is located by the jump platform (see 1st photo) on the river.
