Labadee is a peninsula leased by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines on Haiti for their private use. The entire day is
spent on Labadee with RCL providing a BBQ style lunch and entertainment. There are plenty of beaches and water
activities available. We chose riding wave-runners, parasailing, shopping and relaxing when we were there in 2008.
For some of the best bargains in Jamaica, head to the port town of Falmouth and start shopping. The Albert George Shopping and Historical Center, located in Water Square, features craft stalls and ancient artifacts dating back to the 1800s. While you're in Falmouth, tour the historical town center for a visit to the former residence of slave owner John Tharp, or the townhouse of Edward Barret. The crocodile farm and the Greenwood Great House, where the famous poet Elizabeth Barret Browning once lived, welcome visitors on a daily basis. Located about 20 miles from the popular Montego Bay, Falmouth is easy accessible via cab or bus. For the heart-conscience traveler, the walk or bike ride to Falmouth is a great way to burn some calories. Kingston flights to Falmouth are the easiest way to reach the resort town. Once here, travel by boat, bike or let your feet take you anywhere you need to go at this remote resort getaway.
By Taxi & Bus Most cabs in Jamaica are older vehicles. Taxis in Kingston don't have meters, so agree on a price before you get in the car. In Kingston and the rest of the island, special taxis and buses for visitors are operated by JUTA (Jamaica Union of Travelers Association) and have the union's emblem on the side of the vehicle.
Look for a red Public Passenger Vehicle (PPV) plate, red plate with white letters starting with the letter "P". Taxis can be flagged down on the street or summoned by phone. Rates are per car -- not per passenger. Technically, JUTA cabs are supposed to have meters, but most are not in working order. Therefore, again, agree on the price of the trip before booking.
Cab fares should be posted inside the taxi; if you don't see them, you have the right to request a copy from the driver. A 10% to 12% tip is usually added. Avoid pirate or unlicensed taxis. Not only are they not metered -- they are illegal.
