Find the best place to stay — Montego Bay

Enjoy that laid-back Jamaican lifestyle at its finest

If you're looking to kick back on the perfect beach vacation while still enjoying the convenience of city life, a Montego Bay vacation rental just might be the ideal place for you and your travel crew. There's an oceanfront sandy stretch for everyone, from spring breakers to those craving a week of beachy solitude. From thrilling water sports and top-notch sightseeing, to a lively shopping and nightlife scene, the possibilities are endless. So, sit back and soak up the sun (with sunscreen, of course)—you might even encounter a witch if you're lucky.

You'll be literally swimming with the fishes in no time

The sea is the big draw in Montego Bay, and there's no shortage of ways to enjoy it. Pull up a beach blanket and dip your toes in, or go for full immersion with a snorkeling or diving adventure (Widowmaker's Cave is particularly fascinating). From family-friendly water sports to adult-friendly catamaran booze cruises, you're sure to find the right thing for your group. There's plenty of duty-free shopping in town, along with endless places to dance the night away. If all that's not enough, try some sailing, fishing, and parasailing, or check out the local spas.

Colorful birds, blue waters, and white witches

The beaches are obviously a big draw, but they're far from the only attractions you'll find near your Montego Bay vacation rental. Make some new feathered friends at the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. The young (or just young at heart) in your group will enjoy a day splashing around at AquaSol Theme Park. Another popular landmark is Rose Hall Plantation, a Georgian mansion dating from the 1770 with stunning grounds to explore. It's said to be haunted by the famous White Witch—they even named the neighboring golf course after her.

You'll quickly become a fair weather fan of Montego Bay

It's reported that Columbus first named the area Fair Weather Gulf (Golfo de Buen Tiempo) when he first visited the island in 1494, and one day at a Montego Bay vacation rental will tell you why. You can expect temperature swings that don't go higher than 20 degrees all year long. High temps are always in the 80s, while lows consistently sit in the 70s. You can forget about snow, but you might see rain, particularly from May to June and September to December. Check ahead for hurricanes if you're heading here in the fall.

Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go

Jamaica may be farther off the Florida Keys than the Beach Boys implied, but the scenery couldn't be more perfect. Pristine white sand beaches contrast beautifully with the crystal clear aqua waters that are teeming with tropical fish and marine life. A thriving town shares its name with the bay, offering a good balance of city life and nature. There are plenty of nearby caves to explore, of both the above-ground and underwater variety. Birdwatchers won't want to miss a chance to visit all the colorful species at the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary.
