Blue Hole and River Tubing

The Blue Hole is a natural limestone sinkhole near Ocho Rios. A deep cavern within the tropical mountains of Jamaica, the Blue Hole gets its name from the deep azure hue of the water. Travelers visit to swim, cliff dive, and make their way through the lush rain forest to Secret Falls.

The Blue Hole features majestic waterfalls pouring into it from the sides and thick rain forest vegetation growing around its rocky perimeter. Since it's not an official tourist board attraction, the site lacks the vendor kiosks and organized queues typical to other natural attractions such as the busy Dunnís River Falls. As such, the Blue Hole feels like a hidden gem.

For thrill seekers, its blue waters are an excellent place to go swimming, try cliff jumping, or use the rope swing. Tour Guides, working for tips, grab up visitors to provide advice on the safest places for jumping and swimming, as well provide information on local flora and fauna.

If you like walking down waterfalls, jumping into small pools of water, having swiftly flowing water splashed over your head, jumping and rope swinging into deep pools of water, youíll love the Blue Hole. Jay and Joyce did.
