Once Jamaica's hidden gem, Negril has significantly expanded its infrastructure without losing its casual way of life.
Get outdoors at Half Moon Beach and Barney's Hummingbird Garden Jamaica. Explore hidden gems such as Swim with Dolphins and Negril Lighthouse. Go for a jaunt from Negril to Black River to see Black River about 1:05 hours away. There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, step off the mainland to explore Booby Cay Island, and stop by Irie Art.

For other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Negril trip itinerary planner.

Houston, USA to Negril is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Houston to Negril. When traveling from Houston in February, plan for a bit warmer days and much hotter nights in Negril: temperatures range from 85°F by day to 72°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Fri) so you can drive to Ocho Rios.
