Shopping in Ocho Rios

Photo credit: © Rebecca Snyder

Ocho Rios is known for its aggressive sales tactics which can be slightly off-putting for many travelers, but its huge variety of products which are deeply discounted and often duty free.  If you're up for a little haggling and are willing to shop with cash on hand, you will have a great time shopping here.

Downtown there are a few shopping centers and malls with well-known businesses selling duty-free goods like jewelry, clothing, china, crystal, and other housewares.  You shouldn't have to do much bargaining here.  It is at the merchant markets, such as at the Native Craft Market near Dunn's River Falls, where the owners of vendor carts will try and push you into buying their products.  The craft market is the best place to get local coffee and any number of handmade goods.
