Its most famous beach is Doctor’s Cave. The water is crystal clear and sparkles from the healing mineral springs that feed into it. There is romance and excitement in the air brought on a myriad of waterfalls, by the beautiful foliage and fauna married with the golden sand beaches and warm Caribbean breezes.
Montego Bay is Jamaica’s second largest city in terms of population, but it is the most popular tourist destination of the island. The city has three sectors: the resort area along the coast, the city center and the surrounding hillside scattered with villas. The streets of Mo Bay are lively and crowded: full of culture and crafts. The architecture is a collection of wood frame houses, colorful, modern office buildings and Georgian design. Nearby are the deep water piers where thousands of tourists disembark from the grand cruise ships daily.
Montego Bay offers diverse activities. Visitors can visit the local rum-producing estates for a taste of Jamaica’s finest rum. Not far from the city center is the Barnett Estate Plantation, with roots dating back to the oldest plantation family in Jamaica. Down the way is the Belvedere Estate encompassing multiple hundreds of acres, and is still in operation.
To add to the romance, an evening on the Great River should be part of your holiday itinerary. You don’t want to miss torch-lit-banks while you cruise down the river.
Jamaica offers a rich culture, with its own unique music, cuisine and art. Jamaica’s vast mountain tops, lush vegetation, clear waterfalls, and pristine beaches are some highlights of this romantic island. Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean.
