Visitor Information

Welcome to Jamaica and Montego Bay! 

Jamaica is the third-largest island in the Caribbean Sea, about 90 miles south of Cuba. The island is comparable in size to Connecticut (in the United States) and is made up of coastal lowlands, a limestone plateau, and the Blue Mountains. Jamaica’s size and varied terrain allow for a diversity of growing conditions that produce a wide variety of crops.

Montego Bay, the capital of Saint James Parish on Jamaica’s north coast, is a thriving cruise ship port with numerous beach resorts and golf courses outside its commercial core. The sun-soaked beaches, historic plantations, tropical gardens, and a lush countryside rippling with jungle peaks provide a peaceful escape.  Montego Bay is a vacation destination for those seeking adventure in the midst of paradise.
