May 2, 2013 - 6 Days in Negril, Jamaica

Right off the plane we felt that now our holiday had begun. The Jamaicans are a little too laid back though. It took 2 hours to get from the airport to the hotel when it should have taken 1 hour and 10 minutes. We planned to organise private transfers back to the airport with Elvis Bike Rentals back.(Sherwin - 1876 425 4588). I really found the "Hussle" as the Jamiacans call it, a painful experience. After we negotiated price for jet-ski's, the cheeky buggers tried to short change us and after a stern word he asked for a tip. On the first...

Jul 10, 2007 - Jamacia Mon and Miami

Travelled some 30 odd hours to get there Negril Jamaicia, diving here at the Resort was bland, vis was great but nothing really to see, highlight was some wild dolphins that swam with us but that was it, maybe a live aboard would be the way to go... Over to Miami ft lauderdale after my stay here.

Searching for an ATM took us more than an hour and it was already getting dark. Finally we got on the jet skis and hit the sea. In about half an hour it got dark and we had to get back. The jet ski owner did not refund any money (we'd paid for one hour), and Sanketh and OG got into an argument. It was quite funny the way OG argued using some Jamaican slang. Jayanthi tied to show some heroism but was...

Feb 1, 2005 - What Happens in Negril Stays in Negril

In one rather out-of-date hotel in MoBay, I was amused to find a waterstained poster from the 1970s, extolling the 'sweet solitude' of Negril and its 'empty, expansive beach.' Back then, Negril was a farflung counterculture mecca, celebrated by beach-loving pilgrims for its 'far-out' setting and aura of permissive indulgence. As we shall see, the Negril of today is a rather different place. The seven-mile-long beach and Norman Manley Blvd, the artery that runs beside it, now is lined with restaurants, hotels and bars.
