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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Parasailing & Paragliding and Zipline. Take a break from the city and head to Treasure Beach and Speed Boats Tours. Step out of Montego Bay with an excursion to Black River in Black River--about 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: tee off at White Witch Golf Course, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St James Parish Church, tour the pleasant surroundings at Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, and take an in-depth tour of Greenwood Great House.
