About Montego Bay, Jamaica

Jamaica’s second largest city sits on the northwest shore, wrapped around a bay that once sheltered pirate ships. Today, the area’s allure is easy: outdoor sports and downright rowdy alfresco bars.

I heard a lot of negative things about Jamaica from anyone who had ever been before. "It's beautiful, BUT..." So I was very cautious and aware of our surroundings. We did the Martha Brae bamboo raft tour. It was absolutely beautiful. It took my breath away. We saw some pushy salespeople who waded out into the river to try to sell us trinkets, but it wasn't anything too intrusive. I never felt uncomfortable. Our raft captain Clive was very informative and showed us things in nature that I had never seen before. Afterwards they dropped us off for a very quick stop at a shopping area, and we bought a Red Stripe and a meat pie that was knock-your-socks-off good. Back at the port we did some shopping, which was very relaxed and felt safe. I hated to leave. I'd like to come back here and spend a week.

We loved Jamaica. Our excursion was tubing down a river. The gentleman who drove the van was a delight. He talked about Jamaica, its people, and its culture the entire time. He explained No Problem Mon meant there were no problems, just situations. My granddaughters brought this concept back to our family! Shrek helped us at the site where we tubed. What a gentleman. I needed extra assistance and he never made me feel that I was an imposition. In face, I was honored to be called Mother in that Jamaican accent. We will visit Jamaica in the future.

Take a tour and stay close to the tour guide try not to interact with the locals who are selling merchandise because they will do whatever to do their best to try to get money from you any way they can. the country is not the nicest, but it is beautiful in some areas. Do a beach getaway here that includes seeing the city and shows the history of the city.

Wasn't sure about this place before our cruise. I had heard so many bad things and how unsafe it was. Well we took an Adult only excursion to a beautiful resort. It was the best excursion of our cruise. Not only was it stunning with ocean and mountains in the background, we snorkeled, took Kayaks out, sailed and all the food and drinks were included. Awesome resort.

make sure to have an excursion for ocho Rios otherwise it's a waste of time in Montego Bay. Otherwise the only thing we enjoyed there was our time at Margaritaville. Had a slide and actives in the ocean. Great food and Drinks!

Easy off, easy on. All-inclusive at Secrets Wild Orhcid resort. Fantastic. Moderate crowd. Service was excellent. Swim up bar in pool was perfect.

Sales people are pushy but I got a lot of cool gifts. The beach was beautiful and we hung out with some of the locals there. We prepaid a cab driver for a return trip and he gave us a business card to use at the end of the day. All we had to do was find someone with a phone in a shop and he came and got us- no issues. I was a little concerned about him coming back but he was very fast and remembered us right away.
