Ocho rios Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
In the town of Ocho Ríos, there is a large open-air marketplace with about 150-200 stalls where local crafts are sold. It's within very easy walking distance of the Renaissance Grande hotel and rather hard to miss. This is a great place to wander, but be prepared before you go as in any similar market: leave all of your belongings behind and take only the amount of money you intend to spend, no more. And keep half of that in your pocket. There is some absolutely gorgeous craftsmanship there, but once it becomes known that you have a significant amount of money you will find it difficult to execute a transaction effectively with your chosen vendor. Practice your haggling skills before you go!
