Thanks Christine! I'm definitely going to go that route then.
Thanks Lady Jane! - 4 days on the cliffs (Catcha) and then 1 day on the beach (Nirvana) - My family is staying an additional day. I'm flying out before them because I don't have any more vacation days to take.
Congrats Clarity!! Awesome news!
I like Negril in the summer, wll be there in 2 days for an extended stay! Can't wait! Water is warmer (so it feels to me) like a warm bath, rains a bit but is a nice cool off from a hot day, not as busy, nice, I like it.
Have a great time with the fam!! So fun! Enjoy!

You can go ahead of them and be waiting for them in Negril. You have the longer flight. I'm happy for you to be able to spend the time with your parents and sisters. You have a great boss. I've been in August don't worry, you've booked now pack and goooooo. Have a wonderful time. Sorry Markus is not going. So a trip report to finish then a new one.
I thought that you'd find yourself there when your family was going after I read about that phone call with your dad in the car. That's awesome!!!
I was in Negril in July. Not August, but close. It was lovely (hot, but that's fine). It did rain a little bit in the afternoon almost every day but we lived in Florida for many years so that seemed normal to us.
yay! so happy for you, Daisy!! I just knew you weren't going to pass up a trip to Negril with your whole family!! I was waiting to see this post, I guess I knew you were going before you did! haha! We have been to Negril in August and it was great! Water was nice and warm, and it seems a lot of Europeans also like to spend the month of August there. How nice for your family to have you there to show them around. Can't wait to read this trip report! I'm sorry that Markus can't get away and join you, too. :-(

Thanks Northerncaligirl! Have an awesome trip! How long are you going to be in Negril?
Thanks Angel! - I would love to be there to experience their first drive to Negril but you're right, I'll be exhausted after 9 hours in the air and a 5 hour layover in Atlanta. I think I'll definitely go straight to the hotel and try to squeeze in a nap before my family arrives.
Thanks Sbeth! - A little afternoon shower sounds nice after a hot summer day. I'm just crossing my fingers that there isn't a tropical storm. I would be happy in Negril no matter what, but I want my family to experience the beautiful sunshine and turquoise waters.
Thanks Eden - It seems like everyone knew that this was definitely going to happen before I did. I just figured that expectations lead to disappointment. If it was meant to be, it would happen. If not, then it wouldn't. I'm so glad I am going though. I can't stop smiling!!

Juta Negril is not always a bus, Lulu and I met you in April, we picked Juta and they gave us a car...just the two of us and the driver...each way for the 18 dollar fee, per person, so for 36 we got a car, by ourselves and driver stopped when we wanted to, same guy came back to Bar-B-Barn for our ride out of Ja!
That is awesome! Absolutely love your trip reports, thanks so much for sharing with us.
A while ago someone started a thread about round trip to Negril for $30.
Below is the link to the website he mentioned.

We were ALL pulling for you, and I am so very happy for you and your whole family.
You're going to have a wonderful trip....and I can't wait to hear all about it.
So happy for you <3
