Getting Around in Negril: There are several ways to get around in Negril.
1) JUTA taxi and tours, MaxiTours or JCAL
2) Route Taxi
3) Rent a car
The safe way is using JUTA, MaxiTours or JCAL located at your hotel. If there are not available, then your next best way of transportation is a red plate route taxi. Check their windshield to make sure their vehicle is license and insured.
JUTA taxis and tours, MaxiTours and JCAL all should have JTB on their vehicles, which represent Jamaica Tourist Board licensed. These licensed and insured JTB vehicles are $3-$6 higher, but penny wise and pound foolish is not worth it in the end. The difference in cost is your safety insurance.
Bikes are NoNo.
Rent a car is okay, however, you don’t want to get in an accident. If you are at fault, you are going to pay through your noise. If the other vehicle is at fault and they are Jamaican, you can kiss any settlement go by. It will take years to settle.
Call your Montego Bay Airport to Negril driver first, if he or she is not available, they will send a license and insured taxi for you.
Enjoy your time in Negril! Relax! Be Safe!
