To do something different from the beach-and-snorkellnorm, take the 20 mile trip out of town in search of Croydon Plantation in the Catadupa mountains to discover the island’s agricultural riches – in the shape of coffee and pineapples. All-in, it’s a fascinating glimpse of the island’s past.
Must eat at:
The Houseboat Grill at Montego Freeport serves-up an eclectic Caribbean fusion to an upmarket crowd either inside or out on the deck... and booking is recommended.
Must be there for:
Mid-summer sees the fabulous music festival Sumfest come to Montego Bay... with huge beachfront beats, seriously dirty dancing and a vibe that’s sky high.
· While shops tend to insist on fixed prices, when you’re shopping in the market, anything goes – and, provided you can keep your cool, haggling’s the thing!
· Beware Jamaican driving! If you take to the roads, you’ll battle all sorts of hazards... so you’ll need to keep your wits about you.
