Default Shopping in Montego Bay

This is our first cruise and we leave on Sunday 9/5. We have been told by several people that it is not worth shopping in Montego Bay because they will hound you to death and follow you around. Has anyone else had this experience?

Pennie,
We went to montego bay as an uschedualed stop, the dock at costa maya had been damaged the week before. The people were very pushy and frankly the little shopping area was surrounded by barbbed wire, that was scary to me. We were off the ship for about 1 hour total. I did get a very pretty lace hand embroidered Christmas place mat that I loved for about 3.00 american. I would not plan on spending much time out there.

Good luck

Kim

I bought some beautiful wood carvings there, but it was at the shops near the port. I bought about 6 for around 12 - 35$ a piece and they are gorgeous! However, I don't advise going off on your own anywhere, they bother you constantly on the street, and I don't care to repeat the experience of being offered drugs on the street when I have my children with me.

Shop at the airport if you can I got a deal on an 18k tanzanite ring. Paid $335.00 was valued at over $700.00 just be sure you bargain and don't accept the first prices offered.
