Runaway Bay

Once a resting point for escaped slaves, Runaway Bay makes up for a lack of cultural attractions with an abundance of natural beauty.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Green Grotto Caves and Bamboo Beach. Get outdoors at Dunn's River Falls and Park and Blue Hole. Explore Runaway Bay's surroundings by going to Ocho Rios (Fern Gully, Konoko Falls, & more). It doesn't end there: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

Baden-Baden, Germany to Runaway Bay is an approximately 26-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Baden-Baden to Runaway Bay due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Baden-Baden in January: high temperatures in Runaway Bay hover around 34°C and lows are around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can drive to Montego Bay.

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.
You'll get in some beach time at Doctor's Cave Beach and Red Stripe Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Black River and Cinnamon Hill Golf Course. Go for a jaunt from Montego Bay to Clarendon Parish to see Good Hope Plantation about 50 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Rose Hall Great House, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, experience rural life at Croydon Plantation, and stop by White Witch Golf Course.

Plan my day in Montego Bay using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by car from Runaway Bay to Montego Bay takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and bus. In January, daytime highs in Montego Bay are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can drive to Negril.

Negril

Once Jamaica's hidden gem, Negril has significantly expanded its infrastructure without losing its casual way of life.
Get outdoors at Half Moon Beach and Seven Mile Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Negril Lighthouse and Barney's Flower & Hummingbird Garden Jamaica. There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Booby Cay Island, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Mary, Gate of Heaven Catholic Church, explore the striking landscape at Negril Cliffs, and learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour.

You can drive from Montego Bay to Negril in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In January, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
