10 Things You Should Not Do In Negril

DON’T GO INTO AREAS AT NIGHT THAT ARE POORLY LIT – Always err on the side of caution.

DON’T RENT SCOOTERS/CARS/BIKE – The rules in Jamaica is to travel on the left. Therefore, if you are not familiar with curves, turns and left side of driving, this can cause you to have a very short vacation.

DON’T JUST EAT AND DRINK THINGS THAT ARE FAMILIAR – Try the local foods and drinks, such as ackee, curry goat, stew pea, cowfoot, oxtail, irish moss, JB rum, ting, and many of our local cuisines.

DON’T FALL IN LOVE IN NEGRIL – Negril is the capital of casual, and many of the men and women on the beach are all about sex and money. They will fool you with their lyrics, and it is very intoxicating. Take it for what it is worth. Enjoy what they have to say and move on.

DON’T TAKE  RED PLATE TAXIS THAT DOES NOT DISPLAY JTB (JAMAICA TOURIST BOARD) STICKER ON THEIR WINDSHIELD.  These taxis without the JTB stickers  are more convenient, because they are everywhere, and can get you anywhere you want to go. But, they do not carry Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) liability insurance. If you are adventurous and don’t mine the risk. Taking one of these taxi is an experience.

DON’T GO ON A BIG  BUS FOR A TOUR. If you are traveling in a very large group, you might have to go that route. Because taking individual private transportation will be costly. On the big tour buses, there are too many people asking different questions, some want to stop, while others want to go. You will never get all what Jamaica has to offer when you travel on a tour bus.

DON’T GO SHOPPING IN THE CRAFT MARKET. Unless you know what you want, you will be very frustrated with the number of vendors selling the same things, and rushing you from stalls to stalls. Go to the duty free shop or asked your driver to take you to a place less hassling.

DON’T JUMP FROM THE CLIFF AT RICK CAFE – If you are having any health issues, or don’t know how to dive from a diving board, visit and watch the locals.

DON’T WALK THE BEACH LATE AT NIGHT – It is very dark and lonely and can attract unscrupulous character.

DON’T WALK ON THE CLIFF SIDE OF NEGRIL AT NIGHT- Due to limited side walk, poorly lit roads, and very sharp corners. Drivers are always utilizing walking space.

Montego Bay Airport – Taxis Services

There are several airport transfer operators at Montego Bay Airport. However, there are two taxi companies operating at Sangster International Airport that are authorized to meet customers inside (they wear red pants) the lobby. All other operators wait outside the airport to your right waiting for private paid arrival customers, or if you are taking a shuttle, then you proceed to the desk inside the airport where they will lead you to the shuttle services waiting for arrival customers.

The two companies share a common Authorised Airport Taxi desk located just outside the Customs exit. The names of the companies are JUTA and JCAL.

All private taxi and tours operators including the authorized airport taxis are members of these two organization. Therefore, when you hire a driver, his or her car will also have JUTA or JCAL written on their vehicles.

Some operators also put the name of their company on their vehicles, while others don’t. Not having their name on the vehicle is not required. What is required are: Jamaica Tourist Board licensed (JTB), a red plate, insurance and a licensed operator.

The authorized airport taxis are a bit more expensive. For example a private taxi from Montego Bay airport to Negril range from $65-$75. While the airport taxi is $100. Why the difference? 1) They must pay a fee for the privilege and 2) They live in Montego Bay so the extra commute is costly on gas.

The airport taxis are best for short run around the Montego Bay area, and the resorts in Montego Bay.  Those prices are competitive.

So when you book your flight and hotel, compare airport transfer prices. Regardless, of who you choose, we all work together to get you to your resort.

Montego Bay Airport to Negril Transportation Team

Taxis From Montego Bay Airport

Once you clear custom and enter into Montego Bay arrival hall, you will be approached by many tour operators. They are selling their services for the best price possible. They will provide safe shuttle transportation from the airport to your hotel. However, if you want private transportation, sometimes it is not so easy for the price you are willing to pay.

Therefore, it is best to arrange your private transportation prior to landing into Montego Bay. The prices varies depending on where in Jamaica. Here are some guidelines in US$ for private transportation for up to three people:

  • Montego Bay airport to hotels in and around Montego Bay – $35 to $50 one way
  • Montego Bay airport to hotels in Ocho Rios – $80 to $95 one way
  • Montego Bay airport to hotels in Negril – $65- $70 one way
  • Montego Bay airport to Grand Palladium in Lucea – $50 to $60
  • Montego Bay airport to hotels or friends in Kingstons – $230 -$300

Many adventurous people attempt to take taxis that are not insured, nor certified. We don’t recommend those forms of transportation because it can create a problem. Here are a few reasons:

  1. If there is an accident, there are no recourse
  2. Prices varies and once you get into their cars, anything can happen
  3. Stops along the way at local shops are frequent
  4. Clean cars with air condition is not an option
  5. They are not certified to transfer tourist around the island

Therefore, follow the same rules in your own country. In Jamaica taxing tourist around the island  is a form of survival. Many of these people are safe drivers, and good people. However, without the proper license and insurance, you actually place your wonderful vacation at risk.

If you would like to use our services from Montego Bay to Negril or to any of the resorts around the island, excellent. We can also refer you to other licensed transportation operators.
