We grabbed a petty cab to take us around. It’s kind of a dirty city but you have to look past that. The history was extremely interesting. So give it a try. Get off the ship and walk beyond the tourist buying area.

Falmouth was one of our cruise stops. We were told about the "great" deals at Diamonds International, Diamonds Forever, Gold Mine, etc., but nothing could be farther from the truth. Even with our "VIP Card," which "guaranteed" us the best rates on diamonds, jewelry, etc., the prices were double to triple the price we pay for similar jewelry in the United States. Even inexpensive items such as beach bags were more than triple the price in the U.S. ($35 in Falmouth. The same bag in Miami, FL was $9.99). Other than buying a trinket as a souvenir for a family member, don't waste your time here. Save your hard earned cash for when you return to the US where you can support local businesses.

I took a pedicab tour around Falmouth whilst on a cruise. I went with a driver called Everald "Eggroll" his company was amazing always keeping me laughing. He made sure I was safe and having a good time. He took me to "Mama D's jerk shack" where the food was amazing and truly Jamaican. Both the tour and the food will be among my favourite memories from the trip. I would recommend both seperately but the combination of the two made for an amazing day.

There are a number of shops selling souvenirs and other goods in a secure area adjacent to the dock. It is modern and clean. You can also get some snacks, drinks or enjoy dinner. I wish we had walked into the town of Falmouth because it looked clean and safe. We have cruised to Jamaica three times over the past 16 years with Ocho Rios our port on the previous two cruises. I would not venture into Ocho Rios without a tour guide.

We stayed in the 36 acre port shopping area at this stop. I did not expect much but it was my favorite port!! We got some fun t-shirts for our kids, listened to steel drums, saw some amazing crafts, and tried jerk chicken and coconut milk. The music was amazing, the people were so friendly and the port was very clean. I could have stayed several more hours. Also, if you visit, you can bargain with the vendors and, if they have what you want in the craft area, it will often be cheaper than the stores. The stores will negotiate a bit but not as much as the craft vendors. I loved the people and would definitely return to this port again!
