    Falmouth, Jamaica

    August 28, 2014 in Jamaica ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

    Yesterday we docked at Falmouth Jamaica, I've been to Jamaica before but never to Falmouth, so I decided to have a look.
    To be honest there's not much to see, the port area is specially built for RCCL cruise ships and is just shops, outside the port area the town is ramshackle and very run down.
    I wore my Jamaican uniform, that being a Bob Marley T-shirt and to be honest I was very surprised at the amount of people who shouted "hey Bob Marley " and wanted to high five, or fist bump me.
    I suppose they where either very friendly, or just thought I was a knob to be a white guy with a Bob Marley T-shirt walking around on my own, probably the latter more than the former, lol. Must admit I did feel safe walking on my own but you do get pestered the further you go into town, as the police/security presence gets less the further you go, so less police means more beggars I suppose.
    Glad I went but wouldn't bother again.

    Falmouth, Jamaica

    November 8, 2016 in Jamaica ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    The majority of people I speak to don't seem to like Falmouth and they tend to stay in the port area.
    The port area is very nice, it's all new and pristine, with lots of stores and bars like Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville, the locals cannot get into the port unless they work there.
    So the cruise passengers feel safe there, but, it's not the real Jamaica 🇯🇲.
    Outside the port gates things change drastically, and the poverty is apparent everywhere. When you leave the port you do get pestered by tour operators and taxi drivers and the like, but once away from the port things settle down and nobody bothers you.
    The town itself is very run down, but the people are friendly enough.
    There are lots of local bars and restaurants, although I must admit that the bars don't look very welcoming and I personally wouldn't eat in any of the restaurants, as they didn't look to clean.
    All in all I found Falmouth an ok place to walk around, not a great deal to see, but still interesting to see how the locals live.
