I'm planning a trip to Jamaica this December. I have seen quite a few posts saying that Negril is a great place to go for first time travelers. How far is Negril from the airport in Montego Bay? What are some exciting activities to do in Negril? How expensive are meals typically in Negril? Thank you so much!
The ride from Montego Bay to Negril took us 1 3/4 hours the last time we visited via an airport shuttle.
Can't help you with food as we've only stayed at all inclusives
Lots of daytrip options available, you can check with your resort or prebook something with an outside provider. We did a daytrip to Mayfield Falls on one trip, YS Falls on another, you can visit the Appleton Rum plantation.
The trip is about 90 minutes. You can visit ricks cafe for sunsets. They are expensive to drink and eat at. You can also do cliff diving if you dare from there. Food in the area is about US $10 per person for each meal at the most. Plus drinks of whatever type you like. Hotel bars are expensive through. Best get is to stay in all inclusive so you don't have to worry about food and drink prices.
