Earlier this year there were dire reports about the new facility at Falmouth regarding illegal activities and pushy panhandlers. I was quite pleased with our tour of the town and saw many passengers wandering the streets. I heard no reports of trouble. The Jamaican people we met were quite pleasant to us. I admit to being one of those with a low threshold for pushy vendors and panhandlers, so it was quite refreshing.
Still, it is a jumping off point for tours as the town is nothing special. My biggest disappointment was that the 'secure' port facility is not even close to being finished. At best only 50% of it is complete.
