Shopping Tips from an experienced Jamaican Souvenir Retailer Karina’s Gifts & Tees in Falmouth, Jamaica.

  1. If you’re buying T-shirts and are looking for larger sizes such as 3XL, 4XL, 5XL, or 6XL, expect to pay a few dollars more.  These will have been custom-made and contain more material.
  2. The Wood carvings are hard to price; they have been lovingly hand-made, so it’s the carver’s time, years of expertise, and skill.  So bear that in mind when you’re negotiating with the wood carving artists.
  3. Oil Paintings, the same principle as the woodcarvers, made by Jamaican artists, negotiate with an appreciation of their time, effort, and work.
  4. Regarding the Rum Cakes, Rum, Coffee, and hot sauces, you can buy variety packs that the retailer has put together.  For example, Aanchal of Karina’s Gifts and Tees does a pack of 2 oz coffee, a small rum cake, a small bottle of Rum, and a bottle of hot sauce for $20.00.  Such a bargain and you get a taste of everything Jamaican to take home.

Docking in Ocho Rios:

Taj Mahal Shopping Center is a 3-minute walk from the Terminal.

Docking in Montego Bay, Jamaica:

Shoppes at Rose Hall – a taxi ride or the Hop on Hop off bus – 20 minutes in light traffic.

If you are in Montego Bay, then there is some shopping right by the ship, but not much.  Shoppes at Rose Hall; there is the Hop on Hop off the bus click here for the latest reviews.  Not such a great service, so I would recommend taking a taxi there and taxi back; there are a couple of stops along the way so that you can have a couple of hours on a beach before or after your shopping spree.  Before you spend your time heading out there, check the latest reviews on Facebook. Click here or visit the Shoppes at Rose Hall website; click here.  Montego Bay is a quieter port, so the shopping just by the ship might yield what you are looking for in terms of basic souvenirs.
