Flight and hotel Montego Bay

Diving into Montego Bay

Undoubtedly a Jamaican gem, Montego Bay combines the allure of protected stretches of azure ocean, Rastafarian culture and historic Palladian villas. Snag yourself a flight to and hotel in Montego Bay and sip your rum punch in a sun-saturated hammock, or discover some of the most spellbinding interiors in the country during your weekend in Montego Bay. Mesmerising stained glass at St James Parish Church dates from the 17th century, while the tropical cocktails at Doctor's Cave Beach are ultra fresh, and definitely what the doctor ordered.

What you should know before visiting Montego Bay?

It couldn't be easier to book a flight to and hotel in Montego Bay. You can catch a direct flight from London to Montego Bay, and flights from Manchester will also deposit you close to Montego Bay's sparkling waters. Regular shuttle services transport you directly to the port on the island's northwest coast.

You will likely need to apply for a Jamaican visa ahead of your trip. Jamaican dollars are available at a favourable exchange rate for UK citizens, while the five-hour time lag eases you into what will inevitably be a blissful Jamaican vacation.

When is the best time to visit Montego Bay?

Flights and hotels in Montego Bay become cheaper during the island's two rainy seasons in May and October. You'll also find that the island becomes much quieter during these times, which can make them attractive for city breaks in Montego Bay. While hurricane season lasts from June until November, the island's weather patterns are forecast via satellite and locals are accustomed to taking the necessary precautions. Little rain falls in high season, though it can be chilly in the evening.

What is there to do in Montego Bay?

Whether it be an insight into its Rastafarian roots or diving on its pristine reefs, city breaks in Montego Bay offer something for all comers. Beneath the surface of the glittering water of Bogue Lagoon, bright corals wave their frilly arms while a variety of fauna sneaks through the nearby mangroves. Experience traditional Rastafarian culture beyond the dreadlocks and stereotypes at Montego Bay's Rastafari Indigenous Village. Tours encompass insights into the faith and treks to perfect swimming pools.

What you can discover in Montego Bay

Begin your explorations of Montego Bay at Sam Sharpe Square, which is overlooked by a monument to the national leader and instigator of the Christmas Rebellion of 1831. Alternatively, transport yourself back into the fascinating history of Montego Bay at National Museum West, where you'll learn about the indigenous Taíno, the slave trade, and numerous uprisings.

Meanwhile, at Bellefield Great House & Gardens, you can see 18th-century colonial life in full swing. Dating from 1735, the homestead is a jewel of city breaks in Montego Bay. As you explore the house and its gardens, shaded by ancient trees, you can sip rum punch and enjoy a lunch buffet served on the grounds. Make sure to arrange tours of this fascinating attraction 24 hours in advance.

Jamaican jerk and other mouthwatering options

Besides liberal libations of Jamaican rum, you'll want to savour the local flavours served up at HouseBoat Grill, which proffers top-notch Jamaican cuisine. Tuck into your supper as you float in the salubrious surroundings of Bogue Lagoon in this converted houseboat. From tiger shrimp in zingy curry sauce to smoked marlin, the menu supplies sublime flavours that you'll savour long after your Jamaican adventure.

Package holidays to Montego Bay aren't complete without a pilgrimage to Pork Pit for spicy jerk delicacies. While its offerings may not be haute cuisine, you'll have the chance to devour your meal beneath a 300-year-old cotton plant.

Souvenirs of Montego Bay weekends

Gift yourself or a friend with memories of package holidays in Montego Bay at one of the many colourful Rastafarian-style souvenir shops in town. Some of the best exports to pick up on your weekend in Montego Bay include:

  • Wooden carvings fashioned from indigenous cedar and mahogany.
  • Appleton Estate rum, believed to have medicinal value.
  • Jamaican root tonic, made from tree bark and native plants, another healer.
  • Blue Mountain coffee, which is one of the world's best-loved blends, at a fraction of the price.
  • Jerk spices, which let you transport some of the warmth and colour of your Jamaican getaway home with you.
