Luxury holidays in Montego Bay
When to go
High season runs from December to April – expect peak temperatures and beach-bound crowds to match. Those in the know aim for November to mid-December, when the weather is warm and the beaches less bustling. It’s best to avoid going between August and October, the height of hurricane season.
PlanesMontego Bay is served by Sangster International Airport, with direct flights, as well as intercontinental connections, touching down from North American cities including Chicago, New York and Toronto. From there, it’s around a 15-minute taxi ride to the city centre and about 10 minutes to Ironshore, the main resort area.
AutomobilesSet-route taxis are a handy option for navigating the city centre or heading to and from the suburbs, with fixed, generally reasonable fares – look out for their red number plates and the routes written on the driver’s door.
