Montego Bay Craft Market & Shopping
 
Has anyone been to Harbour Street, Craft Market, in Montego Bay? Any info is appreciated.

Hi,

I went to Jamaica, can't remember which port it was however, if the ports share any similarities, you'll be swamped with very aggressive sales people. It's almost intimidating and frightening; at least it was for my girlfriend.

I do believe this was on our tour of Mobe...if this is the right place, they have brightly colored stalls, with crafts, etc. Many people stayed on the bus, due to the bit of climbing to get to the area...

I think this was the excursion that we took on our Cruise 2 years ago. The craft Market was scary. People literally dragging you into their booths, and the "Modern Shopping" was a small strip style shopping center that was run by oriental people. They did take us around on a short tour of the island that was semi interesting.. But personally I wasn't impressed. We ended up back at the terminal where we bought our souveniers and then reboarded way earlier than we though we would. Should have known it was bad when we got there and the terminal had barbed wire fences around it! :shock:
