Montego Bay Itinerary - Tours and Activities
Updated: Aug 3
Montego Bay or MoBay is Jamaica's second largest city and a major tourist destination. It is booming with all-inclusive resorts, restaurants, attractions, beaches and nightlife. It is also a major port of call for cruise ships. This tropical paradise is suited for all types of travelers. It has great cuisine for the foodies, beautiful beaches for the loungers, great night life for the parties, and exciting activities for the adrenaline junkies. So lets dive into my extensive collection of things to do while in MoBay.
Part of the job of a travel agent is to save clients time and money. I looked through hundreds of tours and picked out the best tours to book in various categories that are both the best in quality and price.
Unless otherwise noted, prices listed for each activity are for a single adult and are subject to change. Rates are typically discounted for larger groups and children, so use the links provided to see the exact cost for your specific scenario and book what is of interest to you.
If you plan to spend a few days in MoBay's neighboring city of Negril, you can take a look at my list of things to do while there.
