Experience many of the area’s natural and historical highlights, with time left over to immerse yourself in local culture and take an excursion or two. Here’s how to get the most out of three days in this Jamaican city.
Aquasol Theme Park
Aquasol Theme Park, Montego Bay, Jamaica
Families wanting to keep children entertained are in bliss at this kid-oriented theme park. Children thrill to fly over the water on a banana boat or Jet Ski, spy on reef life with a snorkel mask or from a glass-bottomed boat, or get goofy on the beach, where inflatable water slides and water trampolines offer hours of fun and distraction. Landlubbers have options too. There’s beach volleyball, table tennis, and two professional tennis courts with pros on hand for lessons. Over at the go-kart area, kids and adults alike tear through a challenging circuit, competing for first place.
On weekend nights, the venue changes gears as it turns into a nightclub. The outdoor stage features local and national reggae and pop acts.

Nearby Fort Montego
Before or after playing at Aquasol, catch a bit of Jamaica’s colonial history at nearby Fort Montego. About a 5-minute walk from the theme park, this 18th-century fort was built to protect the island from marauding pirates and the fierce naval forces of the Spanish and French. Walk amongst the atmospheric ruins—now an open-air museum—from its more active days, such as four cannons and lower-caliber guns. Admission is free.
