Experience Montego Bay with us

A trip to Montego Bay is a trip to a destination of two faces! On the one hand, you have the sunny paradise setting where palm trees gently sway beside the golden sands of the shore. Where you can encounter dolphins, enjoy sea adventures, and visit stunning lagoons. Even head into the wilds of inland for safari trips! On the other hand, away from the soft tourism touches, you find in every brochure, there's a very different place. Montego Bay is a lively, chaotic place where car horns beep and bustling human life goes about its everyday business at its urban core. Experience both sides, and Montego Bay will soon have you dancing to its Jamaican rhythms.

Our tips for Montego Bay

Make the most of the beach and then…: Spending time at the beach is a must, but also make sure to try something a little different. Why not book a dolphin experience, head out on the golf course or go on safari? We have plenty of options available to make your stay that little bit better. Drinking the water: You’ll be glad to know that the tap water is safe to drink; of course, if you’re not sure, then bottled water is available. Also, make sure to try the local food. Honestly, it’s fantastic!

Good to know

Best time to visit
Head to Jamaica and Montego Bay during the winter months, so November to mid-December. This is when the temperatures are averaging around the 80’s. The peak season heads on into April, but the earlier side of the winter season will mean you miss the crowds. Also, things like room rates are reasonable then too.
Getting around
You’ll probably spend most of your time on the beach. However, if you’re not on an organised tour, the best way to get about is by taxi or walking. There is practically no bus service, so the taxi is your best bet if you really need to get about.
Stay Safe
Like many places, Montego Bay is a safe place to be, although you’ll need to stay alert of your surroundings, especially when you’re visiting the city. Pickpocketing and petty crime are not unknown, so always keep an eye out on your bits and pieces.
Did you know?
Impress your friends with these tidbits of information • Remember the James Bond film Live and Let Die? Bet you’re singing the theme tune right now? Some of the scenes from that film were filmed in Montego Bay. Better watch it again and see if you can spot them. Ian Fleming, the writer, penned many of the novels in the region. • Usain Bolt runs like the wind; perhaps it has something to do with Montego Bay? He went to school in the region.
