Explore Montego Bay's surroundings by going to Reggae Style Mayfield Falls (in Savanna La Mar) and Fishing Charters & Tours (in Falmouth). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Rose Hall Great House, buy something for everyone on your list at Whitter Village Shopping Mall, make a trip to Hip Strip, and play a few rounds at Three Palms.
