Known as the tourist capital of Jamaica, the town of Montego Bay is a popular cruise destination. Most hotels in Montego Bay are just steps away from warm turquoise waters, while outdoor reggae festivals and dance-til-dawn entertainment at various clubs keep the party atmosphere lively. Numerous all-inclusive resorts in Montego Bay dot the breathtaking waterfront, many providing their own private beaches and world-class spas.
Out and About in Montego Bay
Plenty of options are available for stepping into Montego Bay's crystal clear water and enjoying the colorful sea life and sugar-white sands. Kiteboarding is offered to both newbies and accomplished surfers, while snorkeling and sunbathing are irresistible at Doctor's Cave Beach. To learn about Jamaica's culture and history, take a tour of Croydon Plantation; you'll sample different varieties of pineapple and other fruit, taste fresh coffee, and enjoy an authentic Jamaican lunch. For pure shopping delight, nothing beats the Gloucester Avenue "hip strip," home to some of the best people-watching anywhere. Many cheap hotels in Montego Bay are located directly on Gloucester Street. Walk from your hotel to the Craft Market, then relax at an outside table with a tall drink and watch the world go by. If your cruise ship puts in at Ocho Rios, about 60 miles east of Montego Bay, you can stay at luxury hotels near Coconut Grove Shopping Village.
Eating and Drinking
Montego Bay has plenty of places to dine outdoors where you can take in the ocean and indulge in fresh, delicious seafood. Many restaurants will also have authentic Jamaican jerk chicken - a dish cooked by marinating or dry rubbing chicken with jerk spice, which includes pimento and cayenne pepper. After dinner, enjoy a classic island cocktail with some Jamaican rum.
