It has many, many colorful beach resorts fronting on its famous 7 mile long stretch of cool, white sand beach within 2 large ocean bays. A few of Negril's beach resorts are very large, very magnificent all-inclusive resorts. But many are mid-size and small but quite colorful boutique resorts that allow their guests to experience more of the actual Jamaican culture.

Negril also has a number of very scenic and lush cliff resorts stretched south along the town's western cliffs. Here guests can step outside of their resort's walls and immerse themselves in the real Negril's Jamaican culture.

The most expensive time to visit Jamaica is during their best weather winter season which is from December until May (after and before hurricane season).

During this period the intense heat of summer has passed (which generates their hurricanes and their rainy season) and temperate, balmy weather ensues. So, don't expect any vacation bargains during these months because this is Jamaica's high tourist season and the time when they make enough money to stay in business year-round.

To get good rates and low air fares though, try to book up your airline flights and your resort stay 6 - 9 months ahead of time. Air fares normally go up as you get near to your trip dates so start checking in February or March for airline reservations for a vacation in November or later.

Tours of Jamaican attractions can also be booked well in advance from Rocky's Taxi & Tours.
