Negril

Once Jamaica's hidden gem, Negril has significantly expanded its infrastructure without losing its casual way of life.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Black River and Half Moon Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Booby Cay Island and Barney's Flower & Hummingbird Garden Jamaica. There's much more to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, enjoy the sea views from Negril Lighthouse, and stop by Irie Art.

To find ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Negril trip itinerary builder site.

Houston, USA to Negril is an approximately 9.5- hour combination of flight and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Houston to Negril.
