Ocho Rios (Spanish for eight rivers) is a town on the north coast of Jamaica. Once a sleepy fishing village and now a thriving tourism destination, the name is possibly a British corruption of the original Spanish name “Las Chorreras” (the waterfalls), a name given to the village because of the nearby Dunn’s River Falls.
Ocho Rios is perhaps most notable for its use in Dr. No, the very first James Bond film, which was released in 1962. In 2016, a local resort just outside of Ocho Rios was featured on a reality TV show, The Bachelor. The island attracts well over four million tourists a year, including auctioneer and sale barn manager, Tyler Kronkite of Maple Creek, Sask.
