Default Help Help Help!!!!!!!

I will be going to Montego Bay Jamaica and need to know some things before I go:

1. is it as bad as Ocho Rios when it comes to drugs?

2. Any good Straw Market type shopping close?

3. Where is Jimmy Buffett's margaritaville at?

4. Any thing that is NOT to be missed while we are there?

Thank you for your help.

Margaritaville is close...straw market is by Dunn's River Falls. Lot's of folks say it isn't to be missed. It is a ride from Montego Bay, that's why I've never taken that excursion. I don't think you would be disappointed if you went to the falls. Drugs are everywhere, just say no and keep walking. Stay with a group. Don't take independent taxi's.

Hi Tinkerbellgirl0425,

It's been a while since we were in Montego Bay, but as I recall there's a straw market right at the port. Margaritaville would be a taxi ride away.

Personally, I wouldn't do Dunn's River Falls from Montego Bay. Most of your time would be spent on a bus. Save that tour until you go to Ocho Rios !

Yes, you'll be offered "ganja" everywhere in Jamaica! As Melody said, just say "no thanks" and keep moving !

If you're going to take a taxi be sure it has the red JUTA license plate.

Here's a good site about Jamaica:

Have a wonderful cruise!
