A trip to Falmouth is a bit like taking a step back in time. Quaint and full of Colonial Georgian architecture, Falmouth has managed to retain the charms of colonial Jamaica during a time when the rest of the world is embracing technological expansion at breakneck speeds. Despite charms of its own that include horse-and-buggy historical tours and the Albert George Shopping and Historical Center, Falmouth is also the jumping off point for much of Jamaica’s wilderness. Those looking to explore Ocho Rios, Dunn River Falls or any one of Jamaica’s numerous rivers will enjoy both the serenity and the prime location of this slow-paced Caribbean town.
Falmouth is located on the northern tip of Jamaica, east of Montego Bay and west of Rio Bueno. The city serves as Jamaica’s newest cruise port, and it is located a stone’s throw away from many of the island’s outdoor attractions.
