Top 5 / Caribbean

You may be able to drive from one end of Jamaica to the other in five hours, but there is plenty to do along the way. Begin in Montego Bay, capital city of St. James Parish and home to protected waters, coral reef repair projects, beautiful beaches and calm tranquil waters.

Doctor’s Cave Beach

Once the most famous beaches in Montego Bay, Doctor’s Cave Beach is a fun destination to float in the water with a drink, bounce on the sea trampoline and relax in the sun.

Nightlife and Dancing

The nightlife, live music and vibrant dance scene in Jamaica is hard to miss. Look out for special events and dance parties during your stay, or get ahead by visiting the tourism site for an inside look.

Jerk Cuisine

Take a car from the airport into downtown Montego Bay and take in the brightly painted shops, restaurants and hotels. Your driver will have a few suggestions of where you should eat, but definitely try the Pig Pit. The local favorite doesn’t look like much from the outside, but it’s worth a visit.

Rose Hall

Take a tour through the restored, slightly haunted mansion of Rose Hall. Walk along the incredibly creaky floors, exploring the old house and listening to your expert guide detail the incredible, while slightly fabricated, history of the plantation. Hear all about the late mistress Annie Palmer, more commonly known as the White Witch.

Adventure

Book an adventure tour through Montego Bay and take in the beautiful surroundings by zip line, sail boat or Jeep. There is so much to see, do and a lot of land to cover and a professional tour is the best way to try it all.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
