Montego Bay — a Caribbean classic. The Jamaican tourism stronghold remains a major draw for travelers, with adventures to satisfy any area of travel desire. Here are five of my favourites.

Spa Unwind Must

You are jet-lagged, still a bit frozen from the polar vortex or you are tired from Caribbean Marketplace preparation? No problem, you have found yourself in the ideal place to restore and rejuvenate your body! There are many spas located within the vicinity of the Montego Bay Conference Center and your hotel. Visit The Fern Tree Spa at Half Moon A RockResort (If you are not already staying there) and you will be delighted to find a 68,000 square-feet sanctuary offering signature treatments fused with both modern spa techniques and ancient remedies. Or, take a relaxing drive to Round Hill Hotel and Villas (If you are not already there) and allow yourself to be transformed at The Spa with the Round Hill Signature Hot Stone Massage that uses heated stones taken from the Caribbean Sea, this will definitely thaw any Polar Vortex.
