A friend and I stayed at the Holiday Sunspree in Montego Bay. We took a cab to Rick's Cafe. There was four of us. However, if there a alot of people going perhaps you want to stick with the resort tour.

Rick's Cafe is great! My FI and I went there when we were in Negril in November. Loved it. The cliff diving is awesome and the sunset was AMAZING!!! But the drinks are pretty expensive and the music is a little "club like" which is just a warning for you in case you are bringing people that arent much into the loud thumping rap. It was part of the program and didnt bother me, but I can see how some people might find it a little annoying.

 

All in all I think it is a great place to go.. but it was a 20 minute cab ride for us.. so that is a little different then taking 3 hours to get there.

I also spoke to my cousin about this recently because she stayed at ROR and went to ricks. She said they took a catamaran there and when they got close to the cliff at Ricks they went snorkeling and then let them off to eat and hang out there for a few hours. It was only about 30 bucks pp she said and it was a tour company that they found at one of the set ups at ROR.

Yea I know that's what I said too because even from Mo Bay to Negril I heard it was like 50.... she said she had more info about it and what tour company it was stashed away somewhere so she's gonna find it for me.



Also she said it didnt.... but I think when your Jamaican you get things cheaper because they know not to rip you off (i may be completely off by saying this) BUT when I went to Mo Bay with friends and cousins a few years ago and we took two cabs... they charged me and my friends more (no accent) than my cousins (accent).... coincidence??

I think it will be a long drive. With a fun crowd and an informative driver, it would be great if a narrated tour was incorporated. With the drive being about three hours, I can only imagine a boat/catamaran would be even longer. Plus, people might get sea sick.

I just did that trip in February and it took 2.5 hours. It really didn't feel that long and the sunset is definately worth it! We did this Negril Sunset tour through sunquest at the resort and it only cost us 50 bucks for the whole day ; left at 7:30am and returned at 9 pm. We got to spend the whole day on the beach and then go to Rick's

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
