Things To Do and Activity Guide for Jamaica Vacations

The Montego Bay area of western Jamaica has many beaches, restaurants, nature preserves and historic sites. Taking the time to see just a portion of them will easily fill up a vacation week. For the sports enthusiasts, you will also find championship golf courses, well-maintained tennis courts, jet skis and lots of water sports options. Your WIMCO Villa Specialist can recommend things to do in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and then make the reservations for you.

Montego Bay Sights and Activities

Tours to Mayfield Falls

The nearby historical landmark Bellfield 1794 Great House and general sightseeing tours can be arranged with the concierge at Round Hill and Half Moon Bay Club.

Belvedere Estate

Travel through Jamaica's mountainous interior and catch a glimpse of the old Jamaica when you visit the Belvedere Estate, a 1000 acre working plantation and historic village. Tour the ruins of the former Great House and Sugar Factory, visit the plantation herbalist and blacksmith and wander through the landscaped botanical garden along the Great River.

Mountain Valley Rafting

Here you float lazily down the Great River aboard a 30 ft. bamboo raft built for two. Your captain will detail the colorful folklore of the region and you may swim alongside your raft, or explore the lush tropical riverbanks as you wish.

Black River Safari

Take a native boat ride along Jamaica's largest river as you explore mangrove swamps where you'll see birds and even crocodiles in their natural habitat. Then on the YS Falls where you enjoy a short jitney ride before reaching this isolated and beautiful spot deep in Jamaica's hills.

Mayfield Falls and Mineral Springs

Hike up the river, swim in twenty swimming pools and natural jacuzzis, walk along the mountain slope and listen to the sound of water rushing through the stones. Mayfield Falls, just 50 minutes drive from Round Hill through the hills of Hanover Parish, is one of Jamaica's little treasures.

Montego Bay Highlights

See Jamaica's second city and tourism capital, pass its harbor and take in the sensational panoramic view that surrounds the Bay. Shop at the Montego Bay Craft Markets, enjoy a scenic tour of Ironshore, the largest villa development on the island.

Rose Hall Great House

Restored by John Rollins which harbours the intriguing legend of Annie Palmer also known as the "White Witch".

Ocho Rios Sights and Activities

Dunns River Falls

A delightful ride along Jamaica's beautiful North Coast to Ocho Rios, the shoppers paradise, and the site of Dunns River with its majestic cascading waterfalls. Have a great time climbing the falls to your own natural whirlpool and come away feeling refreshed and relaxed. Ocho Rios also boasts the beauty of Fern Gully, which, as the name implies, is an ancient river course which is covered with ferns of all descriptions and empties out into the heart of the town.
