Now that I've got a pretty solid idea of where we will be going, would anyone care to share some things to do that are off the beaten path And not in the travel books??

We will be on the island June 11-25 and spending 3 days in negril, 4 in Belmont, and 6 in port Antonio (then to mobay the day before our flight)..

Really stoked on the stay in Belmont.. Staying at shades cottages, seems like a cool rasta..

Thanks guys

Belmont is one of my favorite corners in JA----sweet runnings and a fine beach right there @ Bluefields. I love to stay there and have it as a quiet base for just hanging out. Because I take a rental car, I head there on my yearly trip: after maybe 2 days of taking care of business in Kingston, I usually leave there for this fishing village in Westmoreland.

Belmont also has Peter Tosh's crypt----it's a place where there's 'not a lot' going on, but that's a plus in my book. Well out of the industrial tourist area, but with a fine view of the ocean and the hills steeply rising over your shoulder. No hustle.

Going to Port Antonio is also a smart move---what a beautiful town! While there, try & check Blue Lagoon near Fairy Hill, Frenchman's Cove(astounding beach), and take a ride up the steep road to the Bonnie View Hotel---that's the setting in the movie where Peter O' Toole & Joanna Cassidy have breakfast with this extraordinary view of Port Antonio below.

Bet you have a fine time....

I don't really have a specific driver when I go to Jamaica so I'll take down this number.

I could use a SAFE driver thats for sure. Last visit my wife and I almost got killed on our way to Negril from MoBay. We ended up going three abreast at 60mph to avoid a head-on and our driver was partly at fault. Talk about a buzz-killer!

Thanks for sharing this info
