Montego Highlights and Beach Break

Learn Montego Bay's stories and secrets beginning with the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1494. Hear stories about Montego Bay's early days as a sugarcane port as well as its darker days of slavery. Head to the heart of the city and stand on the cobblestone streets of Sam Sharpe Square, named after a national hero who was hanged for leading the revolt against slavery in 1832.

While in the main square you will see other notable spots such as the civic center and the National Heroes Monument. Amid the colorful Georgian-style buildings you will find the Cage, a small stone structure that was once used as an overnight jail for vagrants and drunks. Stop at St. James Parish church to see the elaborate stained glass window installed in 1911. This 200-year-old church is laid out in the shape of the classic Greek cross and is surrounded by centuries-old tombstones.

Conclude your tour with some fun in the sun at the famous Doctor Cave Bathing Beach. The famous British Osteopath Sir Herbert Barker declared in the 1920's that the water has curative powers when he was restored to good health after visiting the beach. Since then many locals and foreigners have visited this beach hoping to cure their ailments.

Book now for an unforgettable look at the past and present Montego Bay.

The tour guides were great with all the information they told us. The other people that book the excursion with us didn't read that there was a small tour of Jamaica and then we would stop at the beach for a few hrs. They were panicked and asked the tour guides to take us directly to the beach I wanted to see the sights first but we only made two stops. The cultural center and a store for shopping. I think we were supposed to stop more places but all in all the beach was so gorgeous I didn't end up minding too much. There is a coral reef there and we snorkeled the entire time after eating at the beach club food was amazing! Highly recommend trying the food. Chairs and umbrellas were for rent we were in the water when we weren't on the deck eating so didn't need them. Took beautiful pics of the reef and purple fish highly recommend an underwater phone case (not pouch) I got off Amazon.
