Jamaica: Sing Me Montego Bay

By the time you read this, I'll be on an airline heading back to Jamaica, where I started my life. I'm spending the first few days in Montego Bay so I thought I'd give you some quick highlights.

Rose Hall Great House, Montego BayWhether you're in Jamaica for conferences, business meetings or incentive travel, one trip is not enough time for your group to fit in everything that there is to explore. When your business meetings are over and you're not relaxing on the beach, playing golf or riding horses, your group can:

  • tour Rose Hall Great House that is reputed to be haunted by Annie Palmer its former owner
  • go bamboo rafting on the Martha Brae
  • learn about Jamaica's history and culture at Outameni
  • visit Luminous Lagoon at Glistening Waters

If listening to Bob Marley's music has made you curious about Rastafarians, visit the Rastafari Indigenous Village.

Is your group in search of a more rugged adventure? Head for the hills to explore the Windsor Caves in the Cockpit Country. At the Windsor Research Centre, researchers will give you an overview of the flora and fauna that are unique to the area.

Half Moon Resort, Jamaica
At night, dine at your resort or try the Sugar Mill Restaurant, a restaurant with a working wagon wheel at Half Moon Resort, Julia's Italian Restaurant or, for casual fare, Jamaica Bobsled Cafe. Then, give lady luck a try at the casino at Coral Cliff before heading across the street on the "hip strip" for dancing Margaritaville, the 3 level nightclub on a cliff inspired by the Jimmy Buffett song.

Search the Cvent Supplier Network for all-inclusive beach resorts and 5 star hotels to fit your event budget.
