Safe to go to Montego Bay??

Reading travel advisories about Montego Bay being unsafe for tourist travel? We have an Aug trip booked at all-inclusive Riu Palace. Any advice?

Read the forums. As far as I know the state of emergency will be lifted on 5/2. I’m going to Montego Bay next weekend. If anything I feel safer knowing there’s a larger police presence.

There is a large police presence, we stayed at the Reggae, which is surrounded by chain link fence and barbed wire. We did have a great time but we also noticed the illegal activity taking place.
