With it’s sparkling white sand beaches, assortment of water sports activities and tours, pulsating nightlife and alluring cuisine Montego Bay is undoubtedly one of Jamaica’s most popular destinations. Some visitors choose Montego Bay as their destination, get there and simply let their feet tell them where to go, it’s easy to find a beach to dig your toes into or even a beach bar and grill to grab a drink and some food. Or simply kick back and enjoy the captivating beauty of the Caribbean Sea. Here’s what some of our fans on Facebook had to say when we posted Travel Resources: 5 Things to Do in Montego Bay, Jamaica:
“It’s been three weeks since we were there, and it will be 6 months til we get back. Wish I could go every three months, twice a year isn’t enough.”
“I called it home for 18 months (ironshore) then I got married on the beach (doctors cave) then had a few Red Stripes at Walters. its (Mobay) the home in my heart. once you go…you know!”
Jamaica is undoubtedly one of the most romantic islands in The Caribbean and there are so many reasons for this. From intoxicating secluded beaches to serene botanical gardens, enchanting waterfalls, soothing Reggae rhythms and not to mention the warm, inviting nature of its people the list could go on for days.

Fun and excitement blend with rest and relaxation within the astoundingly beautiful garden parish of St. Ann and it is here that you will find its captivating capital, Ocho Rios. This week, we posted our article Weddings & Honeymoons: Honeymooning in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and asked whether anyone celebrated their honeymoon in Ocho Rios. Here’s what one fan posted in response:
Stacy Bagwell Robertson:
“YESSS!!! In 2001!!! Stayed at Sandals and it was AWESOME! Met wonderful people, went to the market, Dunns River Falls (just a very relaxing time) and would like to go back one day soon (celebrating 10 years of marriage this April)!”
Located approximately 9.25 miles (15 km) east of the beautiful beaches of Montego Bay, Rose Hall Great House is one of the most famous and intriguing historical structures in Jamaica. Built in 1770 by George Ash for John Palmer, Custos of St Thomas, and his wife Rosa.
According to local legend the Great House is to this day haunted by the malicious spirit of Annie Palmer, “The White Witch”, the tempestuous widow of John Palmer’s grandnephew John Rose Palmer, who eventually came to own the estate. Here’s what some fans posted in response to the article Where to Visit: Rose Hall Great House, Jamaica:
“Have been there about 15 times and never get tired of it. The story of Annie palmer is so fascinating, everyone needs to read “the white witch of rosehall”. The 2 golf courses they built on the property are 2 of the finest anywhere. its a must see if you are taking a trip to Jamaica.”
“Yes, quite intriguing. Got some really cool video in the basement and a photo of a mirror that does not show my reflection…interesting indeed!”
