Montego Bay, Jamaica
I am glad I went because I am a Bob Marley fan, but I was actually disappointed. Maybe the guides were having a bad day... but on the drive there in the van there was no music - no Marley, no reggae, no nothing! During the drive the main bit of info the guide gave was about all the spending opportunities. Not about the life of Bob Marley or his spirituality. Spending opportunities are the main theme of this destination, unfortunately. Cheap touristy souvenirs abound. We were escorted from one stop to another, each one with an opportunity to buy or donate $. After passing through a tacky gauntlet of t-shirts and ash trays, you stop in front of an amateur band playing painful versions of Bob Marley songs. I guess the point of this was for visitors to give them a tip. Overall, a disappointing tour and most dissapointing way to preserve the memory and contributions of Bob Marley.
Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril, Jamaica
A must-see. There are only a handful of these sites on the planet (maybe 6). The one in Mexico just died, according to the news in late Nov. 2013 (probably from pollution from a nearby chemical plant).
