Montego Bay Sangster Int. Airport

Airport Car Rental

Jamaica’s second-largest city and arguably its most popular tourist destination, Montego Bay is a fun place to visit. Naturally, it is best known for its Caribbean coastline, but Mo Bay also boasts other types of attractions for the curious traveler to explore. Better yet, the city can also serve as a hub for exploring the rest of northwest Jamaica. With that in mind, these are three of the most interesting attractions in and around Montego Bay:

  • The beaches. Plenty of beautiful beaches and resorts are located around Montego Bay, all of which can be easily accessed with a rental car. These include popular spots such as Doctor Cave’s Beach, Cornwall Beach, and Walter Fletcher Beach. Most of these beaches charge admission, but the prices are fairly reasonable. Montego Bay is also a popular hub for kitesurfing and diving.
  • Dunn’s River Park & Falls. Located in Ocho Rios, another notable town on Jamaica’s northern coast, Dunn’s River is one of the most popular day trips from Montego Bay. A scenic waterfall, it can either be observed from below or even climbed under the instructions of a local guide. The trip to Dunn’s River takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  • Negril. Another tourist hotspot, Negril is just as scenic as Montego Bay but perhaps a bit slower-paced and relaxed. Negril is known for its great snorkeling, and locals also claim that it has the most beautiful sunsets in all of Jamaica. The trip from Montego Bay takes about 90 minutes.

The villa was situated on a private beach (Bengal Beach) which was beautiful. Snorkelling, kayaking and swimming in the sea was fun. We enjoyed climbing Dunns River, the white sands of Negril, pretty town of Falmouth, Ochio Rios, the amazing views driving up the mountains towards Clarendon. Sharkies restaurant was fabulous with great food and good music.

We have a house in Portland parish which is a fair ride from Montego Bay the roads are excellent in the north tourist area but as you go further around the coast the roads are quite bad and you have to navigate huge holes and uneven surfaces but the coast and countryside are lovely

Negril is my favourite place on the the island. We drove from MoBay along the coast and it was such a beautiful scenic drive. We also drive to Mandeville to visit family, which took us to the hills/countryside where it is much cooler at night, but still beautiful. Can’t wait to come back again soon.

Although little time was spent in Montego it served as an important hub for short stay directly after arriving and just before departing. The car rental was close to both airport and accommodation. Having the freedom of the road is essential to seeing the beauty of Jamaica, you can get to places quickly and efficiently this way. The cars are good on fuel so it should not hit your budget compared with taking taxis. The main road and highway are a pleasure to drive and despite many of the back roads looking in need to work, the scenery that you drive around is worth driving albeit steadily and carefully. We stayed in Negril, St. Elizabeth and Portland which are so different from each other - all wonderful in their own unique way.
