Jamaica’s second-largest city by area offers visitors a little bit of everything, from luxury resorts and duty-free shopping to nouvelle cuisine and unrivaled natural beauty. To explore some of that natural beauty in action, visit Croydon Plantation. Nestled in the foothills of the Catadupa Mountains, this working estate is known for its pineapple and coffee. Property tours include samples of both. Further out from the city is Dunn’s River Falls. Located near Ocho Rios, about 60 miles east of Montego Bay, this well-known waterfall is the perfect place to take a dip while taking in the area’s natural beauty. This splashy spot is home to 600 feet of cascading water. Don a bathing suit, climb the stone steps, and see for yourself. If you’ve seen enough flora and crave more fauna, visit the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. Hand-feed hummingbirds on a guided tour of this avian oasis, home to thousands of birds and located about 10 miles south of Montego Bay.

Lovers of plantation architecture should make sure to see the Rose Hall Great House. Built in 1770, this 18th-century plantation is one of the West Indies’ great architectural gems and a top Montego Bay attraction. Take a tour of the house (which has seen a few updates in recent years) and its gardens to hear tales about its infamous owner Annie Palmer. If you need a break from the sun, visit the Gallery of West Indian Art, an art emporium where you can peruse the works of Jamaican and Caribbean painters, sculptors, and more.
