The second largest city in Jamaica, Montego Bay boasts an international airport and a major cruise-line terminal, so it regularly receives a big influx of visitors to the island.
Rose Hall Great House and Blessed Sacrament Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Kids will enjoy Nature & Wildlife Tours and Doctor's Cave Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Negril (Seven Mile Beach, Swim with Dolphins, & more), Tryall Golf Course (in Sandy Bay) and YS Falls (in Saint Elizabeth Parish). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Original Mayfield Falls Jamaica, make a trip to St James Parish Church, identify plant and animal life at Rocklands Bird Sanctuary (Near Montego Bay), and get engrossed in the history at Greenwood Great House.

Start your trip to Montego Bay by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
