Visit Dunn's River Falls. I am almost hesitant to tell you what you do there (if I had known, I might not have gone), but you should definitely go. It is a hike, but well worth it for the sense of accomplishment. Do the Dreamer snorkeling trip/booze cruise. It’s by far the best "booze cruise" I have ever been on. They offer a nice boat and fun crew. Talk to the locals. One local explained some of the history of Jamaica and that the dialect they speak is a combination of Spanish and English. However, most people involved in the tourism industry will tone down the accent and speak English. Quick Tips: Mo Bay is a poor town. Most of the locals are just looking to make a b...Read More

Built on a man-made beach 5 miles (15-minute cab ride) from Montego Bay, this hotel had everything we wanted: all-inclusive offers, a location on the beach and close(ish) to town, and a reasonable rate.

Just outside the lobby was a large pool with a bar i...Read More

I have been on several snorkeling/booze cruises in Mexico and Florida, but this was by far my favorite. The 3-hour cruise leaves from a pier near beautiful Doctor's Cove Beach. Generally, your hotel will have arranged transportation for you, or you will take a taxi there and have about 30 minutes to look around, while the boat is prepared. This is nice, because Doctor's Cove Beach is the most famous and most gorgeous beach in Mo Bay. Once you board the large catamaran with about 30 other people, you are introduced to the friendly (and really hot!) crew and the bar is immediately opened. While they do have Red Stripe on tap and several types of liquor, the most popular drink is Rum...Read More
