The island of Jamaica is a world famous Caribbean vacation destination. It offers everything and more as a place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily routine. Jamaica, with it's warm climate, beautiful white sand beaches, nice resort towns, great food and warm friendly people is the perfect setting for a tropical holiday retreat.
Negril is one of the favorite places to visit by many of the tourists to Jamaica. It is still a small town that has some of the most diverse accommodations in Jamaica. From small cottages on the beach to luxury hotels on the 7 mile beach, Negril has something for all types of tourists. It has singles hotels, honeymooner hotels, family hotels and student hotels. It has student hostels and bed and breakfast accommodations in private houses.
There are many things you can do in Negril and there are near by attractions to fill your every tropical vacation fantasy. The white sand beaches are second to none. The blue-green waters of the Caribbean are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, or fishing. There are all types of restaurants and local food stands that offer great culinary pleasures at very reasonable prices. There are night clubs and night life in the resort hotels and in the town. Most nights are spent on the beach where live Reggae bands perform nightly as you experience the warm night with food, drink, dancing and mingling with new friends and the local people.
Take excursions to near by villages and towns and experience what each area has to offer. A caution, do not hire your driver or guide off the street. Have your Concierge or hotel host make the arrangements for you. This is a safety precaution because there is crime in paradise.
There are so many option as to what you can do, you will have to choose what you want to experience such as a walk up a river with water falls, a river boat trip to see and feed alligators, swing on a rope over a waterfall, buying delicious freshly prepared food by local ladies sold at stands along the road, eating at local outdoor cafes, visiting sugar plantations or watching local cliff divers and so on.
Negril is a fantastic vacation experience which I have enjoyed and look forward to returning to in the near future.
