My husband and I are traveling to Negril in March, 2017. We are not sure if we should plan to use credit cards a lot? Do most restaurants even accept them? Or should we get cash changed to Jamaican or US dollars (we live in Canada). If cash is what is most widely accepted should we have some Jamaican and some US? Also is it best to change it once we arrive in the airport, or should we get it changed at a bank before we leave? Thanks in advance!
A party of 3-5 is trusting you for suggestions for a lovely restaurant for more refined birthday dining. Seafood is a choice for some, and we may have one person who prefers not to eat meat or too heavily. Help!
Traveling from Negril to Kingston (one way), with a stop at Black River Safari on May 26th; anyone want to share a ride to Kingston? Independent taxi/driver is arranged, as appears to be least expensive way to travel. If anyone has other cost-saving suggestions (other than the Knutsford Bus Company-they go the wrong way), please let us know.

I'm visiting Jamaica in May, starting in Montego Bay and then spending a few days in Negril. From there I'd like to go to the Blue Mountains and fly out of Kingston. I know this is a lot of driving!

We will be spending 3 weeks at Jah B's Cottages, arriving Jan 25 2012, from Winnipeg (its freezing here!). We are early sixty-somethings anticipating a get-down local experience, but want to go prepared as much as we can. Does anyone have anything to suggest about (1) electrical adaptors for hairdryers (should I even bring one or is this a waste of time?) (2) any problem plugging in a cell phone? (3)is it better to buy bug lotion and laundry soap, etc. down there, or should we bring it with us? (concerned about travelling "heavy") (4) is Jah B's on the cliff? Hard to find a picture of it from a distance. Looks fabulous though...love the idea of the dogs living under the cottages! Thanks for any replies, One Love Mon...
