    Day road trip to Seaford Town

    by PopPopMorgan Written Mar 10, 2013

    A road trip to Seaford Town will take many back roads. Stop at all places that interest you. Very interesting witnessing how locals in the back country live away from the tourist spots. Seaford Town is really unique with a fascinating history. Go visit the Vocational School, shop a local grocery/bar/stand off the roadside. Watch out for live stock standing in the road.

  • Massage on your patio

    by rdschluter Written Dec 27, 2012

    We had Oya come to our patio at Blue Cave Castle overlooking the water. She works out of Catch A Falling Star but will come to wherever you are. She has a new phone number 876-363-7587. One hour for $70 us. Highly recommended.

    Rafting

    by solopes Updated Dec 20, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our trip to Negril was the opportunity to, in the way back, descend a river in a raft. It happened in Martha Brae, near Montego Bay, and it was calm and nice. It seems that each trip costs about $100 which is very expensive.

    We were expected to add a tip (and we did), and the guide had no problem to start suggesting $20. OK, we enjoyed it, because our final price was only the tip, but wouldn't buy it.

    Pirate's Cove

    by solopes Updated Oct 11, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the highlights of Jamaica, is not an astonishing place, but a merging place, because... it's historical.

    We saw (and lived it) first from the see, and then from the top, and... OK. Good calm times, with lots of happy(?) people around us.

    Katamaran

    A trip along the coast, with good music and cool drinks, was our apperitive to some minutes snorkelling in Pirate's Cove.

    I read that it is expensive (we were in all-inclusive basis), but... what is not expensive in Jamaica to foreigners?

    We took it facing Margaritaville but don't know how and where to book it.

    Blue Hole mineral springs

    by dustmon Written Jun 23, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really cool place in the hills above Negril on the road to Little Bay. They have a nice bar and a huge pool next to a smallish hole in the ground where you can jump in or watch the guys do it for you into a 35 foot deep pool of water "good for the skin and bones". Cool breezes from being up in the hills make for a good getaway from the heat.

    Visit with Rasta Jah-ba

    by dustmon Updated Jun 23, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have known Jah-ba for over 35 years now---he lives next door to where I used to stay with my Jamaican mother Daisy on Lighthouse Road in Westend Negril. He has raised his family in the same spot by renting snorkeling equipment and such to tourists, and also in the past used to make patties, including akee and veggie ones, the best on the island! He is older now (about 70ish) so doesn't make the pies unless he knows you, although if someone asked him he probably would.....You can see him playing Dominos most days or sleeping in his hammock in the yard...His son David now runs a bar/restaurant in front of the compound. Stop by if you are walking the road and say Rusty sent you (My name is Dusty but I have never after 30 years been able to get them to call me that!)
    Jah-ba is next door to one of the road grocerys and close to my friend Tony's Tykes Bikes
    cycle rental. Not far from Ricks Cafe if you are going there for sunset....
    updated Oct/2010---Jahba still with us---found him sitting across the road at a doorway into Tensing Pen Resort----he is 71 this year and still feisty---stop and say hello if walking past his compound. Also saw David on his bike a few times-----

    updated june 2012---Jahba still around and turning 74 on June 27 this year! He now has a bar set up at the front of his compound so stop in and have a cold one with my old friend.

    Get a great massage!

    by dustmon Updated May 2, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oya is a great massager in the Negril Area---she can bring her table to your cottage on the cliffs or at the beach. She was trained for muscular massage, sports related and such, and has done wonders for my shoulder on my visits to Negril over the years.
    updated April 2011
    Oya is still practising her mastery of massage on the cliffs. I got a wonderful one hour massage (aching shoulders and hip) for $70 US---she will bring her table to your location---I got the massage outside facing the ocean!

    Oya, Massage Queen Oya doing her magic amazing location for a massage!

  • GLASS BOTTOM BOAT TRIP

    by caribluver Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taking a glass bottom boat trip out to the reef, going snorkeling or just cruising along the Beach or Cliffs is something you should really make a point of doing, there's so much to see and it's a great way to check out other resorts too.

    The water is so clear you can see down to over 50 ft, along the Cliffs the rocks and corals rise up and in places get so shallow you can see why the Lighthouse was needed

    We went snorkeling to the big reef (take bread to feed the fish) one day and took a picnic to Booby Key on another day ...... great time had by all, the dolphins swimming in front as we came back from the picnic were a bonus

    We used a new boat this year both times, 'Family Bread', friendly crew and typically Jamaican, everything was "No problem" ..... we'll be back guys!

    Their boss House (aka House of Black) was very knowledgeable about where we should go and an absolute mine of information

    Rhino Safaris are a gas!

    by american_tourister Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rhino safaris offers you a chance to take a really fun semi-inflatable high powered boat on an at sea ride for over 3 hours. You ride about 45 minutes on open ocean and then cut up the Black River into the Mangrove swamps before heading back and stopping for a snorkeling session. It was the most fun tour we took in Negril. It is not for children but for adults it is a blast.

    They will pick you up and drop you off from your hotel. Don't bring anything that can't get wet.

    Entrance to the Black River The Rhino and a During the ride. Snorkeling for two.

    Currency change, bike rental

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Banmark has been in the same location for a few years now so seems like a good choice if you need to change money up on the cliffs, or rent a bike, although I think Tykes Bikes does a better job for motorcycles and scooters, run by my friend Tony Vassel----
