Ocho Rios (meaning "Eight Rivers" in Spanish) is a town in Saint Ann parish on the north coast of Jamaica. Outside the city, residents and tourists can visit Columbus Park, the site where Columbus supposedly came on land, and see Spanish colonial buildings and maritime artifacts. Once a fishing village, today Ocho Rios caters to tourists. The town is a port of call for cruise vessels, as well as for cargo ships that load sugar and limestone. 

The name of Ocho Rios is a misnomer as there are not eight rivers in the region. It is most likely a British corruption of the original "Las Chorreras" ("the waterfalls") Spanish name, given to Ocho Rios due to nearby Dunn's River Falls.

Ocho Rios has restaurants, nightclubs located in Margaritaville, as well as Dolphin Cove, where cruisers swim and interact with dolphins. Perhaps, it is most notable for the use in Dr.No, the first James Bond film, released in 1962. It was home of Miss Taro (Zena Marshall), an adversary of Bond (Sean Connery), in alliance with the villain Dr.Julius No (Joseph Wiseman). Ocho Rios also appears as primary location for Piranha II: The Spawning, with many of the scenes being photographed at Mallards Beach-Hyatt, today Sunset Jamaica Grande. In 2016, Rio Chico resort outside of Ocho Rios was featured on ABC's reality TV show The Bachelor 20th season.
