    Why do we visit?

    After reading this article in CNN...
    https://edition.cnn.com/travel/artic...cmb/index.html
    ...and, of course having my own reasons for returning frequently to Negril & then eventually moving here...

    I'm curious to know why you've all returned to Jamaica & particularly Negril on a regular basis? 🌺

    The people. It’s truly that simple for us.
    Don't waste your time with explanations, people only hear what they want to hear.

    Family and friends and to live during the summer months once our house gets built.

    It’s definitely the local people and the vibe they create. Especially love the casualness and warmth of the cliffs. ����

    Definitely the people..the vibe..the food...& after 27 years for me I haven't seen much of a change in the lay of the land & I like that way...the rustic old Negril..the simplicity..I'm a Cliff dweller & always have been & I like spending a nice day at the beach but always look forward to coming back to the home to my little Cliff resort..catch a shower & go up to my bar for a beverage & wait for a beautiful sunset over that awesome warm Blue Caribbean Mother Ocean..what a way to spend the day in little Negril..That's what keeps me coming back all these years..Although I will say that I took a 4 year break to check out other countries in the late 90's & they were nice but just didn't have what I always get from my Negril visit so I haven't a need to look any further for my winter getaway.

    Cool Re: Why do we visit?

    It started with me, and once I got married my wife, but for us it's the laid back casual Irie vibe, the beautiful beach and sea, the food and of course the warm Jamaican people. There's also the fact that you can have 2 vacations in one, half beach and half cliffs, very easily.
    I was born to sand gravitate, it's in my blood, and last but not least nobody can find me when I'm there.

    Our first trip in 1983 was the first of countless trips over the years. Back then everybody had their "likkle ting" going on and although some of it was illicit (weed & shrooms mostly) it seemed like there was a sort of grapevine and "watchy-watchy, hushy-hushy" going on just below the surface that served to keep you out of trouble and impart what you needed to know to get you in the know ("see dem two guys walking the beach? They're undercover from MoBay. Never talk to them"). It was an adventure every day. Maybe it's still like that I don't know. We left the beach hustle and switched to the cliffs many years ago. One thing abides...the long-time friendships we've developed over the years. We're booked for the last two weeks of August and I can hardly wait to see our friends and generate what commerce we can around our spot on the cliffs. Oh, and the food, vibes, music et al.
