A Morning at the Bay
The chirping of exotic birds starts with the rising sun, followed by the melodic rattling of bicycle chains as the mobile vendors set off on their tour. Soon the smooth sound of reggae beats joins in. Every day is a new chance to enjoy life the Caribbean way in Montego Bay, Jamaica's second largest city. But for that, you first need to some fortification. The traditional Jamaican breakfast Ackee and Saltfish is prepared with cod fish served with akee fruit, onions, bacon, vegetables, and plantains. In Montego Bay, people eat a hearty meal in the morning; you can try the national dish at Castle Vue B&B in the city centre, for example.
A Beach Bar to Fall in Love With
The sun is setting in Montego Bay, and although the sound of the birds is fading with the light, the reggae music is just getting louder. The first people are beginning to dance in the bars and clubs on the beach and Hip-Strip, while some are still enjoying dinner in the restaurants nearby. A Jamaican speciality is meat with jerk marinade, which each family cooks following its own recipe. You can get the best jerk meat at a casual restaurant called Scotchies, which looks like a big beach bar. They serve spicy marinated chicken, beef, and fish on a huge wooden grill, accompanied by breadfruit – just delicious!
