After a nice afternoon of church and then touring in Montego Bay we enjoyed the craft store. The people are very pleasant even if you do not buy. Yes there is pressure but in the end the is "respect" as they call it.

This place was a huge disappointment. We stopped here hoping to pick up some souvenirs of our first trip to Jamaica. When we rode past the day before it looked very promising with its MANY bright colored small wooden shacks. When we arrived mid day...More

Had fun hating with vendors. They did not seem as aggressive as I have found in other parts of the world...but. At times you wish they'd let you look at the goods.

You want culture, this is the place. We wanted some Jamaican gifts to bring home and were told to come here. It is outdoors , one booth after another. Mostly the same things. The vendors were somewhat pushy. If something was $20, it was probably...More

I would suggest taking a cab. This will allow you to spend more time there. The tour is ok but they have a time limit on esch attraction.
