1.The Good Hope Estate – Jamaican tour company has converted the grounds of historic Good Hope Estate into a playground for thrillseekers while preserving the stately home for tours. Ziplining, ATV tours, river tubing, and a challenge course are part of the tour package, which also includes a house tour, rum tasting, and a chance to dip into the estate pool.

2. Glow for It at the Luminous Lagoon –  famous bioluminescent bay is a fun nighttime experience — the darker the night, the better. Tour boats and cruise into a quiet corner of the lagoon inhabited by microscopic sea creatures that light up in response to movement. It’s cool enough to see the effect when the boat moves through the water, but the real thrills happen when you jump in and see the glowing swirls and eddies created when you move your hands and feet.

3. Go to Scotchie’s or the Port Pit – Spicy Jamaican jerk cuisine is world famous, and Montego Bay has two of the best purveyors on the planet. Scotchie’s is a tumbledown roadside stand serving jerk chicken, pork, and fish with sides of yam, breadfruit, rice & peas, and festivals. The backyard flavor of the place is enhanced with an open bar where you can order Red Stripes and rum drinks to sip on chairs made from old beer kegs.

4. By Any Name, Rose Hall Great House Tells a Ghostly Story – day and night tours of the majestic Rose Hall Great House are available, but we’d recommend the evening tour to set the proper mood for the story of this haunted 1770 plantation hour’s dark history. The former dungeon, where slaves were held for punishment by the cruel White Witch of Rose Hall, a plantation owner’s wife, is now a pub.

Savor the Flavor of an Appleton Estate Rum Tour – Jamaica and Barbados hotly contest for the title of rum capital of the Caribbean, but when in Jamaica the clear rum champ is Appleton Estate, which produces fine mixing rums as well as sublime sippers. It’s two hours on back roads from MoBay to the estate, but once you’re there you can tour the distillery, sample a variety of rums.
