Shaw Park Gardens

We did not eat locally in Jamaica, we took snacks and then went back early and had lunch at the ship.
However we did take a cab to Shaw Park Gardens (see pictures) and then back into Ocho Rios.
Cab fares are fairly high.
The city of Ocho Rios is only a 10 to 15 min walk from the main dock.
Ocho Rios seemed to be split into two sections. The tourist section of town which was gated and guarded and the local section of town which was an experience into a third world ghetto.
Maybe not a must see but certainly an experience that reminds us of the wealth and prosperity we have in America.
