MONTEGO BAY is caught in contrast.
Sprawling across the Bogue, Kempshot and Salem hills, Montego Bay contrasts from its center to its edges. Especially touristy at Gloucester Avenue or the "Hip Strip", a beautiful bay with miles of coral reefs and shores excellent for any beach rest, yet in its remote "downtown" strip you won't meet any visitors.
Montego Bay demands a visit for you to solve this tension. Be it a room in cheap hotel in Montego Bay or one abundant with luxuries all available at Booked.net. We have hotel offers with maps, photos and secure forms to book your stay.
Strolling the "Hip Strip", you will find the very heart of the city life. This dazzling bay is dotted with yachts taking turns with beachfront cafes, hotels, and restaurants stretching along the three main public beaches. There you can experience all pleasures of Montego Bay's seaside location from sunbathing, swimming, diving and snorkeling and boating.
In fact, you can visit Montago Bay without ever leaving Gloucester Avenue, but no trip to the city is complete without sightseeing.
Croydon Plantation, a birthplace of Jamaican national hero Samuel Sharpe
Even though the most tourists never make it past Gloucester Avenue, there is much to deal with in downtown. Recognized for its rough qualities this place centers around Georgian architecture with Museum of St James and unique Sam Sharpe Square.
Along with architecture stands the industrial face of Montego Bay. The city is usually taken as mere summer retreat, but in reality it is based in the shipping trade with the best shopping at Caribbean. It means that shopping is a must in Montego Bay along with jerky chicken eating at local restaurants and a night of gambling in the Coral Cliffs Casino.
In the recent years Montego Bay developed a more tourist-oriented economy and this is of great benefit as it means very affordable prices - here you can equate US$20 in Jamaica with $100-150 in America.
This makes Montego Bay a very attractive destination for all travel types and you can book the best hotel for you with Booked.net.
