What do I need to know before moving to Ocho Rios?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ocho Rios, they said...

"If you have a chance, give yourself plenty time to look for a good place. Call the realtors around, ask friends and acquaintances if they know of a good place. The town is very small and everyone knows one another. So, if you get in the right circle, you are bound to find help in all areas," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

"Ocho Rios is a popular tourist destination in Jamaica, so expats should be prepared for a bustling atmosphere. The local currency is the Jamaican Dollar, so expats should familiarize themselves with the exchange rate before moving. English is the official language, but many locals also speak Patois. Expats should also be aware of the tropical climate, with temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to the mid-90s Fahrenheit. Additionally, expats should research the cost of living in Ocho Rios, as prices can vary depending on the area. Finally, expats should be aware of the local culture and customs, as they may be different from what they are used to," commented one expat who made the move to Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
