Montego Bay feels very poor and run down as you leave the airport. Lots of roadside stalls selling sandwiches, fruit and beer. But lots of people sleeping rough who look very impoverished also line the roads, literally. There's a shanty town of stalls selling tacky souvenirs and tea shirts. This place doesn't feel safe or friendly.

My wife and I took a cruise and one of the stops was the shopping center. Once my wife got started it was hard to pull her away. The weather was nice and the people were very friendly. Would go again if possible..

This shopping centre does not exist now. Everything apart from Iris's little Indian shop has been vacated. It was difficult to find out why there are now no facilities at this port other than the few signs that say they are remodelling the 2 cruise terminals here. Our ship the MV Voyager arrived for an overnight stop in port from... More

This was a nice place had a great tour, I wish that we could have seen more. We was here for about 8 hours from a cruise. Would like to go back and see more of the neighborhoods where people stay instead of just the resorts and businesses that cater to travelers

This was one of the stops on our cruise. We were warned not to go beyond the tourist part, so all we saw was shops and security. I wish we could have seen the beautiful part of Jamaica you see in pictures. This port was not one of them. As soon as you get off the ship, the natives surround... More

There is nothing so much to see in montego bay but trying the Jamaican chicken or pork jerk with beer in a beach is awesome.

This one of the first places I go when I get to Jamacia. I stock up on everything I need. Take a taxi from the airport.Ask for Satchel if he is not available the next person will assist you. Make sure get enough WATA and RUM. If you need any help finding anything don't hesitate to ask. The staff is... More

I was excited to see some nice stores in which to shop, but I didn't feel like I found any bargains. Dresses were pretty but over priced. Souvenirs were priced accordingly, but the rum was way over priced. I would suggest buying liquor at the duty free stores instead and you would save a lot of money.

I am sorry I had to put the shopping centre in but really my review is about the airport in Montego Bay. We left to come home on October 19th and I have to talk about one of the shops that we visited. I purchased a Bolt T shirt so the store can be narrowed down. I have to admit... More
