Falmouth is a little town that has its own nice and shabby areas. We walked around the Water Square, farmers market in the downtown area, and near the cruise ship pier. Shopping in the farmers market is a nice experience. Gift shops nearby are very pricey.

Lots of local people milling about, and there are historical signs everywhere telling you about the significance of the place.

It is difficult to understand the Jamaican mentality. This feature is advertised as an historic and significant feature and milestone in Jamaican history. It is not looked after, was full of caps from coke bottles or similar and desperately uncared for. I was looking for a bit of Jamaican culture in making this trip. I guess I should re-calibrate my...

Defunk water feature does not a town center make. The only interesting point was that there once were working tunnels under the buildings. We couldn't imagine that. Traffic is very dangerous. There seem to be no rules and no concern for preserving life. Interesting courthouse nearby with extremely steep stairs.

This is a nice little square but the municipality needs to work on renovations and improvement. It is not taken care of and for a town that gets lots of tourist it is not attractive. Plenty of shops around, and lots of vendors asking your to take a look at their merchandise. It can be so much better.

So because of the cruise ship they have turned Falmouth into a walk through town. The square is dirty and not well kept for its name. Some buildings have been restored but persons from the market sell in the square. The fountain and palms surrounding it are not maintained as they should be. At nights the square is transformed into... More

The Bend Down (Bendun) market on Wednesdays is a kick. The cruise ships are in and it's a busy place.
