Jamaica - Montego Bay & Northwest Coast (Chapter)
This is the Montego Bay & Northwest Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jamaica guidebook.
Montego Bay serves as both a gateway to Jamaica for countless travellers, and a backdrop of some of the island’s most obvious contrasts. The city is a typical Jamaican resort town, divided between an unapologetic tourist-oriented stretch of gaudiness and a rough-and-real city center.
