ABOUT JAMAICA AND MODEGO BAY:

If you're flying into Jamaica you will most likely land at Donald Sangster
International Airport in Montego Bay. December is the best month for you to
visit Jamaica and in particular Montego Bay. Lying on the north west coast,
Montego Bay is a bubbling center of activity. "Mobay", as it is referred to
in Jamaica, receives the brunt of visitor arrivals. Not only do most
airborne visitors disembark here, but many cruise ships make this their port
of call. Mobay is also a fun place to relax and enjoy the sights. There is a
lot to do though most resorts will cater to your every need. There are
several craft markets and duty free stores abound. Bring in a return plane
ticket and you can purchase tax free items such as liquors, perfumes, and
jewelry. There is plenty to eat in Mobay. Authentic Jamaican cooking and
some American mainstays like hamburgers. Breakfast here is terrific.
Margaritaville is a party waiting to happen fit with a slide into water
though once it ran out of margaritas. Many hotels offer boat rides in the
bay. Private companies also have party yachts on which to cruise away your
worries. A nighttime cruise through the bay is very pretty as the mountains
rise up over the city and tiny points of light mark Jamaican homes. Mobay is
a good point of operations to use if you wish only to explore the nearby
area. Just east of town Rose Hall Great House and Greenwood Great House. To
the south is Barnett Estate, you've never seen so much sugar cane. A great
attraction to Mobay is the annual Sumfest music festival. Sumfest is a
relatively new reggae celebration that is slowly replacing the traditional
Sunsplash of years past. There are several very nice resorts in Mobay. One
is the Rose Hall Wyndem. Located outside of town near the great house of its
name, the Wyndem is blessedly removed from the all night parties in town. It
is fairly luxurious with its own beach and golf course. Half Moon takes
luxury up to the next level. Golfing and horse back riding is available.

The Capital of Jamaica is Kingston. It's the capital of reggae and home to
the Bob Marley Museum, the National Dance Theatre Company and the University
of the West Indies. Museums are also a way of life in Jamaica and we can
visit the Arawak Museum, which exhibits the food, tools, religious artifacts
and carvings of the indigenous inhabitants of Jamaica, the Arawak Indians.
The historic old cities of Jamaica must not be missed. Port Royal was once
known as the wickedest city in the world, with its inhabitants consisting
mainly of Pirates and Buccaneers. In 1907 half the city was sunk underwater
by a vicious earthquake, testament that the eyes of God were watching.
Spanish Town, the former capital of Jamaica, showcases the rich architecture
of the period when Spaniards ruled this country.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN JAMAICA!
