1. Whoopsie Park (Negril): the owner, Dennis Lynch, put up a number of hammocks around the trees. The ‘park’ itself oversee the ocean; but being on the hill side of Negril, there is no sandy beach. There are rock steps leading down to the ocean water, just in case you want to dip in. What’s best about this place is the circular wooden hut which functions as the open-air bar. Dennis is a great bartender, he’s so nice and always has stories to tell. He also has a restaurant with his son as the cook and his specialty is the BLT sandwich w/ French Fries. Dennis’ specialty? Orange juice and rum.
  2. The Border (between Negril and Treasure Beach): There are food street vendors for about a mile long specializing in fish/seafood dish. On our way from Negril to Treasure Beach, just at the border of these two places (hence the name), we stopped for a quick lunch. Fried red snapper, seems to be the popular menu among the other stuff (try the conch soup… it’s good!)
  3. Frenchman’s Cove (Port Antonio): tropical lush garden, beautiful sandy beach for sunbathing (there’s more shallow part for the little ones), also good waves for body surfing.
  4. Mandeville: Combination of the road going up and down the hills, the crazy Jamaican driver, and the narrow road with deep holes here and there, make the drive a one of a kind experience.
  5. Boston Bay jerk stand (Port Antonio): the jerk capital of the world. They smoke the meat right there, smell so good, and taste great too!
