“Montego bay town center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Dedicated to the Jamiaca hero Sam Sharpe located in the town center which is next to the civil center. Good tour by our driver Allan who kept us informed, safe and used his knowledge to show us local hidden spots.

“Many shopping opportunities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We found it ok for shopping but as in many places in Jamaica, you are a bit overcome by the local's efforts to make a sale...we did use a guided tour so our leader took care of where to go etc.

“Downtown Mobay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Self guided walking trip from the hip-strip to Sam Sharpe Square. It's only about 20 minutes from the hip-strip and made for a nice way to take in the local scenery. Sam Sharpe Square is very crowded and poorly maintained. The area is full of shops, restaurants, and street vendors. It was not as high pressure to buy as the hip-strip is. Very few tourists, just locals going about their daily business.
