Distance from ROR to town, excursions?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how far it was from the resort to town. Am I dumb for asking this? Should i plan to just stay on resort property? When we went to Cozumel it was a 3-5 minute cab ride that cost $6 to get to town for the shopping, restaurants, clubs, etc. What is there to do outside of the resort and how long and at what cost can I expect to get there?

Ocho Rios is about a 10 minute cab ride from ROR. We stopped there on our way to SGOR. There were a lot of outside markets and tons of bars, but I'm not sure if they were touristy places or more for the locals. There's also a Margaritaville. We spent all of our time at the resort, but a couple people in our group ventured out to the town to explore during the day and had a good time.

As Lizz stated, it's a pretty short cab ride. There is a great place to eat called The Jerk Center, we ate there twice! It's not fancy AT ALL but super tasty and authentic. We paid $10pp for a van to take about 20 of our guests there and back one night for dinner. Lots of other excursions are pretty close by too- Dunns River, swimming with dolphins, botanical gardens, fern gully, horseback riding, Chuka tours-zipline & ATV (this was about 15-20 minutes away, the farthest we went). I think we paid $7 or 8 for the shopping excursion.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
