A city of two halves. Montego Bay is one-part slick, stylish and luxuriant Caribbean resorts and another part hectic urban environment, known locally as MoBay. In many ways it’s the perfect reflection of both sides of the Jamaican experience.
The best time to visit Montego Bay is between November to mid-December. That’s when the island’s weather is at its finest and accommodation and cheap flights to Montego Bay are easiest to find.

Route taxis with set fares and destinations are the cheapest way of getting around Montego Bay. Just wave them down and, if there is space, the driver will stop to pick you up. Licensed taxis will charge significantly more for tourist trips, with a $10 minimum fare, but will be far more comfortable. So, you have often to decide between comfort and cost. However, many hotels and resorts offer free bus services, so check before you book.
The main appeal of Montego Bay for most tourists are the luxury resorts lining the coast, offering stretches of beautiful beach and warm Caribbean waters.
However, for a real slice of Jamaican life head to the city itself. It’s a bustling, noisy and chaotic place a world away from the resorts but also the place to go for the best Jamaican street food. The strip on Gloucester Avenue offers good shopping and restaurants.
British nationals do not need a visa for travel to Jamaica. The currency is the Jamaican dollar and they are five hours behind GMT.
