Averages for Ocho Rios in March
March is one of the most pleasant times to visit Ocho Rios, Jamaica because it’s one of the coolest months. During your stay you can expect temperatures to rise up to 29°C during the day, so it’s wise to stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day in order to avoid heatstroke and sunburn. The evenings are much more bearable at around 24°C. Jamaica’s tropical climate means that you’ll probably experience a few rainy days during your stay.
Head to the nearby resort of Kingston during March to see the Jamaica Orchid Society Show. Here you can learn all about growing orchids and their conservation and appreciation.
Ocho Rios is known for its amazing beaches with clear blue waters and soft golden sands. Reggae Beach is one of the most popular and is split into three different sections, run by three different organisations. Although there is a small entry fee, it’s worth it to enjoy the beautiful scenery, fun atmosphere and lively entertainment from the Raggae Beach Bar.
Situated just 25 minutes away from Ocho Rios, Stingray City is the best place to go in Jamaica to swim with stingrays. After a safety briefing, you’ll be invited to get into the Caribbean waters to feed and play with the creatures. Don’t forget to pick up a photo of your visit to show everyone back home.
