Lick off the day by going back to school for a cooking class!  As you know your villas has a  special chef and if you ask nicely nicely you’ll be able to learn a few secrets.

10:30am A Little Shopping

Head to Blue Diamond to one of the souvenir shops there.  Or even you driver can take you to a craft market if you don’t mind a little gentle persuasion from the shopkeepers.  Remember that they are a little pushy but a firm ‘Good Morning and No Thank You’ can settle the matter easily.  If you are buying don’t be shy about pushing for a discount especially if you buy a few things.

12:30am Beach and Lunch

Head to Doctors Cave beach on Jimmy Cliff Boulevard in Montego Bay.  There is a fee to enter the beach but it is used to keep it clean and you wont be bothered by vendors here.  There are bars and grills here for beers and a bite to hold you.

Take your sunscreen, hat and sunnies and remember: don’t get too much sun!  Take a walk along the strip there for a Starbucks or some souvenirs. Enjoying the sun and the beach is definitely one of the best things to do in Montego Bay!
