Montego Bay is a major port of entry for tourists who visit both by plane and cruise ship, and over the years the town as transformed to a simple residential area to a full on tourism mecca.  From a busy shopping and dining district to the beaches, the streets are always crowded with people.  While this can be off-putting for people looking for a quiet getaway, there is no shortage of activities available here. 

It might be hard to even thinking about doing anything other than reclining in a lounge chair on the beach, but you'd be missing out if you didn't venture inland for a little sightseeing, a day on the golf course, shopping the Montego Craft Market, or doing some adventure-seeking.  Kayaking, zip-lining, tubing, rafting, and ATV tours are all great ways to do this.
