  • Sam Sharpe Square is a little gem in downtown Montego Bay. It gives a small insight into the slavery past of Jamaica and the struggle to end it. It is also a beautiful square to see outside of that.  more »

  • Was surprised how many people there had supposedly met me at the airport, even though I came in by boat ... be careful these guys will walk and talk with you for a while and then claim a fee for having served as a guide!
  • The center of the town of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Fantastic central water fountain and statues of heroes and home to the civil center. Scenic .
  • I'm looking for a man named Charles Watson aka " Paul".He used to live at 38 Church street, Mobay. ..Does anyone know him? Or he lives?
  • Sam Sharpe square never sleeps
