Hey Joe- congrats on the engagement! Have you been to Negril before? I assure you the 'taxi experience' is part of the fun! Save your loot for red stripes! Its super simple-look for a red plate and just hail em down. For excursions outside of Negril- I would say have someone already in mind to contact.
Ive met alot of funny cats hailing them down off the streets- just adds to the whole jamaica experience jah know
The best was SHABBA- who pulled over and we had a late night dance party in the middle of the road hahaha
