Montego Bay The Second City.

Montego Bay is Jamaica's second city and has been a tourist Mecca since the 20s when early visitors sought out the healing waters of Doctor's Cave Beach. From the days when ''King Sugar' ruled, Montego Bay has been a bustling commercial centre and shipping port.
The resort of today is spread out from Rose Hall Great House in the east to Tryall in the west, with a choice of accommodation from guest houses to convention facilities.
The resort town of Montego Bay is as far from the 'real' Jamaica as you can get, though behind the narrow coastal plain is hill country where you can immerse yourself in mountain-village life. The region boasts a greater concentration of well-preserved colonial houses than any other, many of which are working plantations that welcomes guests on guided tours. And several championship golf courses, a number of horse stables and the island's best shopping add to the region's appeal.Montego Bay is known for the hotels and beaches Lets go sight seeing.

U.S. entrepreneurs, John and Michele Rollins, restored it to its original glory, complete with furnishings from the same time period. Charming Jamaican hostesses will chill your blood with tales of the evil Annie.
