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! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
