Reviewed August 5, 2014

If you go into town make sure to travel with a local it is very busy and dirty. It wojld be easy to get lost and taken advantage of.

“Visit to downtown Montego Bay”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Traffic is horrible and streets are narrow and over crowded. Not good for shopping, but good place to find Juciy delicious beef patties.

“Go in a taxi”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Interesting from a historic point of view, but this is very much a locals area. You do need to be on your toes and watch belonging. Local kids will want money just for pointing out the statue !

“Worth a quick visit”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

It is the town square of Montego Bay and needless to say, it is very busy with both people and traffic. Worth a visit to see the local color and the hustle and bustle of the vibrant town. Beware of your valuable if you go.

“Filled with Culutre!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

For the culture hungry traveler! This place is always hustling and bustling! Lots of history here as well. Locals welcome sharing that history with you. Travel in a group or in pairs and have fun. You don't need a lot of money.
Quick taxi ride to the hip strip if that's where you're staying.
This is a great place to people watch during the day!!! There are sometimes events held in the square as well. If you're lucky, when you travel you might get to enjoy that cultured filled experience as well.
