I agree with Mike M. The "Taj Mahal" Market is a safe "Gated" Shopping area. They have alot of different types of stores. We shopped there and obtained some good bargans. Ocho Rios is not a very safe area to be walking around down the streets. We went to the "Dunns River Falls" tour and afterwards they took us shopping to the "Taj Mahal Market: shopping area.
On Grand Caymen Island, we went on a shopping tour, went around the entire island. We went to a little town on the other side of the island kown as "HELL". They have their own Post Office there so you can send your friends and or you boss a post card that reads "Go to Hell". We also toured a "Turtle Farm" and afterwards they took us shopping down town "George Town".
Both Ocho Rios and Grand Caymen Island, you can bargon. We had a good time in both places. Make sure that you try the "Jerk Chicken" and have a "Red Stripe Beer" in Ocho Rios. Dave & Diane...
We love anything assocated with crusing and traveling. We are retired U.S. Navy...and loving it, "Been there...done that"! (almost).
