Welcome to South of Montego Bay
The hill country inland of MoBay is speckled with villages clinging to rocky outcrops, narrow roads and large fields of fruit, vegetables and, deeper in the interior, ganja. This is friendly country, where locals aren’t as jaded with tourists as their counterparts on the coast. Be on the lookout for brightly painted shacks decorated with off-the-wall bric-a-brac (pottery, feathers, whatever) – these are often the homes of witchcraft-practicing bush doctors. There are a few scattered attractions in Jamaica's interior – from zip lining and whitewater rafting to a bird sanctuary, a working plantation and a village known for its German heritage. The southeast quarter of St James parish culminates in the wild Cockpit Country.
