What is Falmouth Jamaica Like?

welcome sign at falmouth

Answered by Isheba Cornwall, Associate Writer

Falmouth, which is the chief town and capital of the parish Trelawny, is one of the most unique destinations in Jamaica.

On a typical day, Falmouth is a buzz with commerce and tranportation. Not only does it have several private and public sector businesses, including banks and insurance companies, several self employed individuals can be seen peddling their wares - as typical of most Jamaican town centers.

Falmouth is also the hub between Montego Bay and other towns in an around the St. Ann/ Trelawny area. These include Discovery Bay in St. Ann and Clarks Town and Albert Town in Trelawny. As a result, several local taxi operators can be noticed on a daily basis.

Although known for its rich Georgian architecture, this town is literally where some of Jamaica's best adventures converge - Yes! right there on the north coast of this beautiful island.

If you live for adventure and you want to get a good taste of our local flavour, coupled with our real Jamaican culture, history and leisure then Falmouth, Trelawny is definitely the place for you.

Weather In Falmouth

And what about the weather? Don't worry, the weather is good all year round. June is considered to be the warmest time of year with an average temperature of 84 °F (29 °C) - while the coldest (or should I say cooler) is January at 79 °F (26 °C).
