    Getting around Negril

    What is the best inexpensive way to get around Negril while staying at Travellers Resort? E.g. Travellers to Patsy's Coffee Shop etc if you don't want to walk?

    Ratty2141,

    Just got back last night from a week in Negril.

    I was up on the cliffs and there were very few Route Taxis, day or night on the West End.
    Many more Route Taxis downtown and on the beach road.
    In a week I think I used two route taxi's on the west end, maybe two more on the beach side or downtown. I don't recall what the fare was, but due to the government NOT raising the rates since gasoline has doubled I always paid $500 J per passenger to offset the cost of gas.

    I usually used charter taxis for getting around. I usually paid $20 US to pick me up at Seastar, pick up another person, drive anywhere on the beach, Red Ground or Downtown, drop us off and come back later and pick us up.
    Almost all drivers use WhatsApp for communications.

    I'm guessing since September is slow season, most drivers weren't operating their vehicles due to lack of business.

    Enjoy,

    VVHT

    I have the numbers for a few trusted red plate drivers I use if you’re interested. These are people I use when I’m in Negril.
