randomadventurer13 is correct that there is about a block leaving the gated, sanitized port area where you are aggressively approached by several people offering tours, rides and even marijuana. However, you can quickly move past by saving no firmly and keep walking. Don't Stop. When...More

A Royal Caribbean built/owned port. Very well done with ample shopping and dining choices. If you want the true flavor of Jamaica you must leave the port area. Lot’s of music, food, street vendors and clean restrooms. This is a beautiful port area. We enjoy...More

We enjoyed walking and shopping around the Water Square. There has been a lot of money spent to make this area beautiful.

Water Square is beautiful and peaceful. It gives you a serene feeling outside the hustle and bustle of the town of Falmouth. Great place for taking pictures!

We did not spend a lot of time here, but this area has a great history of the water flow used for the area, as well as some small shops you can shop. Good for a pass through visit but not an all day area.

My husband and I tried to walk through town outside of the port for a bit so we could experience the actual country and perhaps learn about it. This is not the place to do it. We were swarmed by locals pretending to be friendly,...More
