Jamaica recently had to declare a state of emergency due to the increased levels of gang activity within the area. Surprisingly, this has not put a dent in how much tourists love to visit their breathtaking resorts by any means. Destinations such as Montego Bay still remain a traveler’s favorite, bringing tourists exquisite yet personable experiences such as vendors that sing and play various instruments to passers-by. Those who visit Jamaica can even embark on journeys through the Great River on traditional bamboo rafts.
- Jamaica’s Montego Bay offers a range of great activities for a vacation, including the Greenwood Great House.
- Another highlight of Montego Bay is the biodiversity – there are many beautiful plants, exotic birds, and other wildlife.
- East of Montego Bay, the Ocho Rios resort offers horseback riding and other more rugged adventures.
“Even though the country’s president declared a state of emergency to address a wave of gang violence just two months ago, Montego Bay feels as bustling and as friendly as ever”
