Angela A's City Tips

  • Just in case you're a newbie traveler, "duty-free" means that you will pay no tax on those purchases made at a duty-free shopping center or outlet.
  • Taxis are easy to find, and it only costs a few U.S. dollars to get to a lot of the most popular destinations in Montego Bay.
  • Montego Bay can easily be explored on foot once in the city center.

    Angela A Says:

    The Shoppes at Rose Hall may just be the best shopping option in Montego Bay. If you are staying at the resort, visiting the Great House, or checking out the beach here, it is also very convenient. It boasts 12 duty-free outlets and 31 shops, along with a restaurant and coffee shop.

    Angela A Says:

    The Crafts Market is a flea market-style shopping area, where a lot of local goods are sold by the residents of Montego Bay. You will find a lot of handmade items here — as well as typical souvenirs — and while many vendors sell the same products, you're still more than likely to find something you like.

    Tips

    • Definitely check here first for souvenirs as the pricing is generally lower than at the retail shopping centers.

    Margaritaville is not all about the burgers and the margaritas sold here but when you visit, you're likely to have such a great time that you'll want to commemorate your experience with something from the wide range of items in the gift shop. From T-shirts to shot glasses, be sure to stock up on your Margaritaville memorabilia!

    Gloucester Avenue is known as the 'Hip Strip,' and this is where you will find the largest collection of locally-owned stores, selling everything from snacks and grocery items to clothing and souvenirs. You can easily spend a day ducking in and out of these little shops!
