First time to Montego Bay Jamaica!

Can someone name 10 must sees or do's, some great places to shop with good prices, and how to get around cheap? Do to left hand driving we don't want to risk it and we don't want to take taxi's everywhere. I understand you can hire a driver for the day...what is an acceptable charge for this? Thanks everyone! So excited to go!!

"how to get around cheap?"

In most cases, other than transfers from the airport and your hotel, taxies are the cheap option. Tour operators will normally take you to see the sights by bus or van but otherwise most people, Jamaicans and visitors, use taxies for most trips within a town like Montego Bay.

"I understand you can hire a driver for the day"

Very true. Your hotel can arrange for a qualified Jamaican driver to take you anywhere on the island you would like to go.

"Can you get drivers without the hotel help?"

There will be people outside most larger hotels who will offer there services as drivers.

"How trustworthy?"

That is an open question.
