Downtown - Negril Jamaica

Negril's downtown area of a few square blocks juts out, facing north with a view up the western ocean front towards Negril's 7 mile beach resorts area.

Downtown in Negril may be found the police department and the fire brigade, a supermarket, a Burger King restaurant and a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant as well as a few shopping plazas. There are also many small shops where local Jamaican goods af all kinds are sold. Below is a video of a motorscooter journey on Route A1 and from the to the round-about which seperates the beach from downtown and the west end.

We encourage tourists to shop downtown and in the arts crafts area just across the Negril river so as to put some of their money into the hands of the local Jamaican people, not just the resort owners. We also encourage tourists to tip the locals who serve them well for the same reason.

The beach resorts of Negril are all located on the 7 mile beach straight north from the downtown area up Route A1. The oldest Jamaican owned resorts (circa 1960's and 1970's) are nearest to downtown Negril because they were built first. The all-inclusive resorts are farther north up the beach, where Negril beachfront land for their construction was still available.

Negril's cliff resorts area rises up from the west side of downtown and winds south and east along the oceanfront cliffs all the way to Mount Pleasant.

This area is fittingly called the "West End".

Negril's villas are located in scattered scenic locations all over the town and its surrounding areas.

Negril's residential areas are situated to the east of downtown.

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?

Welcoming Videos

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.
