Montego Bay

— 8 nights
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Blue Hole Gardens (in Savanna La Mar), Tryall Golf Course (in Sandy Bay) and Falmouth (Boat Tours & Water Sports, Burwood Beach, &more). Spend the 12th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Rose Hall Great House, get a taste of the local shopping with White Witch Golf Course, get engrossed in the history at Greenwood Great House, and take some stellar pictures from Ahhh...Ras Natango Gallery and Garden.

Jamaica travel guide

4.1
Waterfalls · Beaches · Nightlife
The third most populous English-speaking country in the Americas, Jamaica remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, with the British monarch its official head of state. Jamaica tourism thrives thanks to the island nation's reputation for natural beauty, outstanding cuisine, and lively music scene. The country's landscape is as diverse as its population, its tropical climate supporting varied ecosystems that include everything from savannahs to rugged mountain slopes. For most visitors, a holiday in Jamaica is a largely outdoor affair, with hiking, fishing, golfing, camping, snorkeling, horseback riding, and kite surfing among the most popular things to do.
