Half Moon Shopping Village

This collection of upscale boutiques selling quality crafts is most often visited by vacationers staying at Half Moon and other luxury resorts in the area. The showpiece here is "The Reggae Experience", entirely dedicated to the legendary Jamaican native Bob Marley. A short documentary dedicated to him is played on loop through the day, and pieces from his own clothing line, Tuff Gong Collection, are also on sale here.


Duty free shopping is one of Montego Bay's primary attractions; deals can be had all across town, from boutiques on upscale resort grounds to shopping complexes in town, such as the reasonably priced City Centre Building (do check for hidden taxes prior to making a purchase). Jamaican art and crafts are sold throughout, and vary in quality greatly. At markets, haggling is a must.
