The warm waters of the Caribbean meet white sand beaches and lush jungle here, in Jamaica’s hallowed Montego Bay. Capital of St. James parish, Montego Bay is the second largest city in Jamaica and came to prominence during the slavery epoch as a port town known mainly for its leather, sugar, and lard exports. Those days long gone, visitors nowadays tour the area in style and signature Caribbean comfort, tasting some of the areas excellent restaurants, stopping by its pastel-colored high-end boutiques, or swinging some clubs at one of its several world-class golf courses. Of course, there’s history, architecture, and always the beach, too.

Most of the town’s tourist activity is centered around the old town center, Sharpe Square.Editor’s Note: This recommendation was taken from our Jamaica Things to Do blog.
