Culture and History

Jamaica’s Montego Bay region is located on the north coast of the island and known as the resort mecca of the country. With 10-miles of shoreline surrounded by tropical vegetation, this area attracts regular visitors. For those who prefer a bit more “off the beaten path” the South Coast region of Jamaica is relatively untouched by the tourism boom, and described as the natural part of this island. Located about 2-hour drive from the Montego Bay Airport, South Coast’s seclusion provides pristine beaches for quality R&R. Discover Jamaican culture, in the sleepy fishing villages and un-commercialized splendor this region offers.
