Montego Bay

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fishing Charters & Tours and Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park. Get out of town with these interesting Montego Bay side-trips: Reggae Style Mayfield Falls (in Savanna La Mar) and Burwood Beach (in Falmouth). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Rose Hall Great House, look for gifts at Jewels in Paradise, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, and don't miss a visit to Hip Strip.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Montego Bay trip itinerary planner.

Montreal, Canada to Montego Bay is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. When traveling from Montreal in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Montego Bay: temperatures range from 38°C by day to 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Ocho Rios.
