A coastal getaway from coastal getaways, Port Antonio offers a break from the more touristy retreats in the west of the island.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Mon): stroll through Winifred Beach, then contemplate the waterfront views at Blue Lagoon, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Frenchman's Cove. Keep things going the next day: browse the fresh offerings at Boston Jerk Centre and then stroll through Boston Beach.

To find ratings, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Port Antonio trip planning app.

Phoenix, USA to Port Antonio is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Phoenix to Port Antonio due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Phoenix in July; daily highs in Port Antonio reach 91°F and lows reach 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Ocho Rios.

Montego Bay

Montego Bay ©
The second largest city in Jamaica, Montego Bay boasts an international airport and a major cruise-line terminal, so it regularly receives a big influx of visitors to the island.
Change things up with these side-trips from Montego Bay: YS Falls (in Saint Elizabeth Parish), Negril (Negril Cliffs & Seven Mile Beach) and Boat Tours & Water Sports (in Falmouth). Spend the 23rd (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Rose Hall Great House, explore the activities along Martha Brae Rafting Village, buy something for everyone on your list at Blue Diamond Shopping Mall, and take in the dramatic scenery at Mayfield Falls Jamaica (Original).

To find other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Montego Bay trip planner.

Take a bus from Ocho Rios to Montego Bay in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. In July, daytime highs in Montego Bay are 92°F, while nighttime lows are 77°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
