Info about Montego Bay


Truly a nation “out of many, one people” Jamaica is a multifaceted mosaic of international customs and traditions. Our ancestors, from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, have helped to shape our culture, creating one that is uniquely Jamaican. When visiting our island home, take time to experience our culture… it’s what sets us apart from other Caribbean destinations. Reason with a Rastafarian about life, love or politics. Lose yourself in the rhythms and movements of a people who still refuse to be constrained. Visit one of our many theatres or stage shows and delight in our performing arts, showcasing everything from Jonkonnu to jazz. Want to dance too? Join in the wild revelry of Carnival and Augus’ Mawnin or just follow the reggae beat, pulsing from street corners and rum bars island wide. After that, share a meal with us –ackee and saltfish with roast breadfruit, escoveitched fish, bammy and festival – our epicurean feasts will tantalize your taste buds. In Jamaica, you’ll discover new worlds, and familiar ones too, lots to learn about, and even more to love. No wonder we’ve been called ‘the biggest little island in the world…’ It’s a title we can live with.

Overall Guide : Famous For: Good Hope is more than just an estate home; it is, as it probably was in the eighteenth century, a model for elegant country living. The property is now a part of Chris Blackwell's Island Trading... more Group, and has retained its colonial stature and appeal even through its transformation into a luxurious villa complex with all the modern conveniences. Must See: Few words actually manage to describe a sunrise at Good Hope with any accuracy. Breathtaking, spectacular and awe-inspiring come to mind, but even those cannot truly express the wonder evoked from the experience. The sunrise is certainly a must-see… Say Hello To: Many regard David Pinto, master potter, as one of Jamaica's most promising young artists. His work, which has been displayed in the exhibitions of some of the most prestigious galleries around the world, is dynamic and refreshingly inventive. It is reflective of his warm and affable personality. Back in Jamaica after living and working abroad for a number of years, Pinto has established his studio inside one of the former plantation buildings on the Good Hope Estate, where he creates his pieces and occasionally hosts international workshops. Great Houses If walls could talk these stately old homes would share great tales of witches and rebellion, ruin and triumph! Golf With five world championship courses, Mobay is a cut above par. Hit a few with breathtaking mountain vistas or the turquoise Caribbean, creating the backdrop for an exciting round. Historic Falmouth Journey into the Nineteenth Century and tour the elegant town homes of the plantation era in one of Jamaica’s best-preserved historic towns. Glistening Waters Watch mystical waters illuminate a tropical night. Hailed as the brightest in the world, Glistening Waters’ lagoon ignites with each touch…don’t miss this Jamaican wonder. Cockpit Country Legends abound, this vast limestone forest teems with exotic flora and fauna. Explore the hidden caves, trails and waterfalls of Jamaica’s most wild and untouched region. Hip Strip Day & Night, MoBay’s happening hip strip has something for you – great beaches, fine food, trendy bars and a non-stop party vibe that sizzles year round. Duty Free Shopping Find your own treasure among the exquisite collections of Montego Bay’s vast Duty free world. Reggae Sumfest Every summer, the World’s Greatest Reggae Festival brings thousands of music lovers to experience once-in-a-lifetime performances by reggae’s top artistes. Martha Brae Rafting Experience the magic of gliding through miles and miles of this emerald green forest on your own bamboo raft. It’s sure to enchant you into falling in love all over again. Doctors Cave Beach Sun-splashed shores awash with crystal-clear water beckon. Give in to your desire…

Overall Guide : There are no family related activities except for the beaches .... most of the family fun is gone or even casual fun.. There is not much to do that does not have to do with alcohol or eating... nothing persons... more under 18 are free to enjoy and the fun events for persons over 18 are usually spoiled by too much under age persons being there. Need more age appropriate fun... and persons sticking to set stipulations .
