What people are saying about St. James Parish

The beach was exceptionally! It was so clean. Service was great. The vendor went out of their way to find me transportation from a local partner. The driver was very informative & accommodating. I think this way by far no of the most beautiful beaches in Montego Bay.

Great experience! From our hotel, the drive was slightly long, but scenic. Got to stop at a few places along the way! Margaritaville & Rick's Cafe were two of the main stops and we had a great time at both! Overall a good day out!

Didn’t have the most positive driver he was telling us how bad it was to live in Jamaica and laid it on thick about the tip situation.

It was awesome the people were friendly the food was better than resort
