There are various kinds of family vacations that take place in Negril. Starting from the vacations of young married couples and those who bring along their very small children on up to families with older children or some with both younger and older children. Finally, it's a great place to combine a vacation with a family reunion of a few generations.
The great thing about Negril for kids of all ages is that its beach is shallow all along its 7 mile length and out for about 40 yards, so when it is calm (as it usually is in the winter) it is safe for even the smallest children to frolic around in as long as someone keeps an eye on them.
It is not uncommon in Negril find a responsible couple sitting at a beach bar right by the water's edge, relaxing and enjoying an afternoon drink together while watching their kids play in the sand and in the beach's safe shallow water.
If a family bringing small children can afford it, an all-inclusive resort such as Beaches can be ideal because these resorts offer so many extra services catering to them (such as Sesame Street Character entertainment and baby sitting). For obvious safety reasons, cliff resorts are not reccommended when a family brings small children.
On the other hand, families with older children can pretty much stay at any beach or cliff resort they want or maybe they can even take an adventure vacation involving back-packing, camping and inland hiking / biking. Some families with older children will even river raft or visit the Great Morass which is located on the east side of the 7 mile beach, within which may be found some of Jamaica's crocodile and bird sanctuaries.
Because of internet congestion videos sometimes will not play properly or they will not have audio. You may try refreshing the page to get them to run properly. If that doesn't work click on them to try them on You Tube itself or please return here another time or bookmark them for viewing later when they will play properly. Also, as soon as we become aware of any videos which indicate that they are no longer available from You Tube, we will replace or eliminate them.
Negril.com's message board and Trip Advisor's Negril Forum have many daily threads that provide travelers with much up-to-date tourist information.
Owners, Managers and Patrons of All of Negril's Enterprises
All encyclopedias rely upon experts to provide them with authoritative and true articles about their subjects and this video encyclopedia is no exception. However, the articles that we use here are in photo and video form, so the experts whom we must rely upon to produce them are Negril's enterprise owners, managers and their patrons. After all, who is better quailfied to provide good visual information than these folks who have valid, first-hand knowledge about each of Negril's resorts, restaurants, clubs, shops, road stands, attractions and activities?
Therefore, we here request Negril's enterprise owners to record for us a brief digital video welcoming people to their enterprise and describing its attributes (preferably with them and some of their staff and / or their patrons in it). This will humanize their enterprise to the public by being a very friendly and inviting way of encouraging people to come to Negril for their vacations.
Other Videos and Photos
Enterprise owners (and their patrons) may also provide us with separate additional videos of some of the unique, interesting things that occur within their enterprises.
