Owner description: Cobblestone square in Montego Bay named after national hero Sam Sharpe and featuring the Cage, which used to be a jail for runaway slaves.

It is the town square of Montego Bay and needless to say, it is very busy with both people and traffic. Worth a visit to see the local color and the hustle and bustle of the vibrant town. Beware of your valuable if you go.

For the culture hungry traveler! This place is always hustling and bustling! Lots of history here as well. Locals welcome sharing that history with you. Travel in a group or in pairs and have fun. You don't need a lot of money.
Quick taxi ride to the hip strip if that's where you're staying.
This is a great place to people watch during the day!!! There are sometimes events held in the square as well. If you're lucky, when you travel you might get to enjoy that cultured filled experience as well.

This site could have so much potential, but I'm glad we just drove by it.

The area is very crowded, due to its location in Downtown, MBJ. So much history, but it seemed as if it was not a big deal.

We hired a driver to take us into Montego Bay on a late Friday afternoon. It was great to get out of the cocoon of the resort. There are tourist spots within the city where people go, but unless you are with a big group, I wouldn't recommend going out into the city alone.
