December is the best month for you to visit Jamaica and in particular Montego Bay. Lying on the north west coast, Montego Bay is a bubbling center of activity. "Mobay", as it is referred to in Jamaica, receives the brunt of visitor arrivals. Not only do most airborne visitors disembark here, but many cruise ships make this their port of call. Mobay is also a fun place to relax and enjoy the sights. There is a lot to do though most resorts will cater to your every need. There are several craft markets and duty free stores abound. Bring in a return plane ticket and you can purchase tax free items such as liquors, perfumes, and jewelry. There is plenty to eat in Mobay. Authentic Jamaican cooking and some American mainstays like hamburgers. Breakfast here is terrific. Margaritaville is a party waiting to happen fit with a slide into water though once it ran out of margaritas. Many hotels offer boat rides in the bay. Private companies also have party yachts on which to cruise away your worries. A nighttime cruise through the bay is very pretty as the mountains rise up over the city and tiny points of light mark Jamaican homes. Mobay is a good point of operations to use if you wish only to explore the nearby area. Just east of town Rose Hall Great House and Greenwood Great House. To the south is Barnett Estate, you've never seen so much sugar cane. A great attraction to Mobay is the annual Sumfest music festival. Sumfest is a relatively new reggae celebration that is slowly replacing the traditional Sunsplash of years past. There are several very nice resorts in Mobay. One is the Rose Hall Wyndem. Located outside of town near the great house of its name, the Wyndem is blessedly removed from the all night parties in town. It is fairly luxurious with its own beach and golf course. Half Moon takes luxury up to the next level. Golfing and horse back riding is available. The Capital of Jamaica is Kingston. It's the capital of reggae and home to the Bob Marley Museum, the National Dance Theatre Company and the University of the West Indies. Museums are also a way of life in Jamaica and we can visit the Arawak Museum, which exhibits the food, tools, religious artifacts and carvings of the indigenous inhabitants of Jamaica, the Arawak Indians. The historic old cities of Jamaica must not be missed. Port Royal was once known as the wickedest city in the world, with its inhabitants consisting mainly of Pirates and Buccaneers. In 1907 half the city was sunk underwater by a vicious earthquake, testament that the eyes of God were watching. Spanish Town, the former capital of Jamaica, showcases the rich architecture of the period when Spaniards ruled this country. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN JAMAICA!
