    My fiance and I will be in Jamaica from March 26, 2010 through April 5, 2010 (possibly longer) which is 10 nights. We plan on relaxing but also checking out all the "to do" things in Jamaica. I know there was a thread just started about Rick's Cafe and Dunn's River Falls, but if anyone can provide any information like your experience and suggestions about the following that would be great!!

    Rick's Cafe

    Dunn's River Falls

    Glistening Waters

    Beach Horseback Riding

    Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville

    ATV adventures

    Zip Lining

    Black River

    Appleton Estate Rum Tour

    And anything else that I missed that would be worth while.

    P.S. I have seen the websites that offer information for all of the above, but I would like your input whether you were there firsthand or heard it from a friend, relative, etc. who experienced these things firsthand.

    Thanks!!!

      Definitely do the Zip Lining, Its awesome!! We also enjoyed the dune buggies. Dunn's river was okay, its something that is associated with Jamaica, so it was nice to say we did it, but its really far from Negril. We stayed in Ocho Rios, so we didn't get a chance to go to Rick's Cafe, but I've heard is awesome. Look up Chukka Tours, thats who we used.

        Rick's Cafe

        Dunn's River Falls

        Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville (I went to the one in Ocho Rios) but there is one in Negril

        If that is your first time going, I would def say go to experience it ..so you can say you went ..

        There are comparable falls to Dunn's River in Negril .. Mayfield I think is the closest, and then YS .. You can climb both I think ..probably double check on the websites .


        If you feel comfortable ... Jungle (nightclub) on Thursdays in Negril is ladies night lol ... but packed with tourists too

        You'll prob spend more time in town and at the hotel than doing tours .. your days go by so fast, after you have done 1 or 2 you pretty much toss the others out the window ...

        i would def do the catmaran cruise to Rick's .. you get some snorkeling time in, time to see the sunset, then booze cruise back ..

          We are planning on the zip line, Dunns River Falls, and horseback riding for Ochos Rios. Rick cafe, river tubing(with my 8 year old), Jungle club(night before wedding i& it's Thurs./ladies night), and checking out either the Mayfield/Y Falls.

          Also, keep in mind there are things that you can also book on the grounds of your resort. I scheduled a "surprise" massage at the RPTB beach hut for my FI @ 10am-11am on our wedding day. This will keep him off the swim up bar for a bit before our 4pm ceremony! lol My evil plan. Then he can hit the buffet for lunch and shower/change.
          When we are at the Sandals Ochos Rios, I want to plan a dinner on the beach for the night before we leave Jamaica.
          Maybe you could do a couple's massage on the beach the day after your DW?
          I contacted my travel vendor, Travel Impressions, and they are having a 50%off excursions through Chukka Tours for the zip lines and river tubing. So, maybe get ahold of your vendor and see if they're offering anything for a discount.
          Good luck planning! Great ideas.
