Negril Itinerary - Tours and Activities

Updated: 3 days ago

Negril Jamaica is home to the famous Seven-Mile Beach, voted many times as one of the best beaches in the world. With it's amazing sunsets, turquoise blue waters and sandy shallow bays, it is easy to see why. The beach is lined with numerous bars and restaurants, the most famous one being Rick's Cafe, where people get their adrenalin pumping by jumping of its cliff. There much more to Negril than Seven-Mile Beach and Rick's Cafe. So lets dive into my extensive collection of things to do while in Negril.


Part of the job of a travel agent is to save clients time and money. I looked through hundreds of tours and picked out the best tours to book in various categories that are both the best in quality and price.


Prices listed are when booking for a single adult and are subject to change. Rates are typically discounted for larger groups and children, so use the links provided to see the exact cost for your specific scenario and book what is of interest to you.
