    Ocho Rios: Several Options

    Ocho Rios - Jamaica

    The biggest city close to Runaway Bay is Ocho Rios, being the shopping destination of all the tourists staying in the area.

    Not too attractive, neither the city nor the market. A couple of new malls clearly directed to tourists, with prices for American, nor even Fernanda could convince.

    The crafts market was a little more authentic, and justified the visit.

    Generally, the hotels are the most expensive places to shop, but in Jamaica I'm not so sure of that.

    We checked some prices with external shops, and the differences were small. Of course, we didn't try the local circuit, and had no idea of the "real" prices.

    General: The Higher the Better

    by BigBlueOne Written Aug 16, 2007

    It seems as though the farther away from the beach you get the cheaper everything becomes.

    What to buy: Keep in mind, though, that the farther away you get you'll also have fewer selections.

    What to pay: Much cheaper on most things than anywhere I've been.

    Breezes Runaway Bay On Site Shop: Small but sufficient

    by saturnsvu Written Aug 31, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Plenty to Try On

    On-Site Store with essentials as well as t-shirts, necklaces, and Blue Mountain Coffee.
    The only thing I found to be overpriced was film and batteries.

    What to buy: Blue Mountain Coffee - same price as on the street
    T-Shirts for Souvenirs - actually on sale at 3 for $20. Good deal when you have 6 kids waiting at home for a shirt!
    Necklaces with the Jamaican Colored Beads
    Jamaican Rum

    What to pay: Depends on how many people you are taking souvenirs home to.
