Maroon Town Day Trip

Explore a maroon town to truly understand the history of Jamaica. With this day trip from Ocho Ríos, you'll learn about the lifestyle, culture and origins of the Jamaican Maroon community.

Maroon Town Day Trip

At 10 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Ocho Ríos and we'll head east towards Charles Town.

After a scenic hour and a half long journey, we'll reach this traditional Maroon town. Our first stop will be at the famed Charles Town Maroon Museum, where you'll discover all about the history of the Jamaican Maroons.

The Maroons were brought from Africa as slaves and rebelled the British colonisers. Throughout the day, you'll find out all about their history as well as many interesting facts.

An extremely important element of this community's culture, and that of the entire country, is music. On this day trip, you'll have the chance to enjoy traditional dancing- you won't be able to stop yourself from joining in!

After dancing and having fun with the locals, we'll make our way to the Buff Bay River to cool off with a dip in the water.

Before we return to Ocho Ríos, we'll head to a local restaurant where you can enjoy a delicious traditional lunch (not included). Then, we'll make the trip back to your hotel, where we'll arrive at about 3 pm.

If you prefer, you can also take this day trip from Runaway Bay.
