Montego Bay: Jamaica’s second-largest city, Montego Bay is a market center for visitors and packaged tourism. The town has a storied past that dates back centuries to the arrival of the original inhabitants, the Taino Indians, and later Christopher Columbus and Spanish control in 1494. For 300 years after, the British ruled Montego Bay, and the town was a center for plantations and the slave trade. It wasn’t until the late 1800’s that tourism really began to gain a foothold there.
Popular attractions include the Rose Hall Great House and Doctor’s Cave Beach.
