Our tour guide Blake was really friendly and welcoming, he did a great job explaining all the towns that we passed through on the way to Negril. The drive was a bit over two hours long from Montego Bay due to traffix but enjoyable because it's so scenic along the coast. We were really worried about rain but Blake kept a positive attitude and told us it should stop and it did.
We wanted to walk along a part of the 7 mile beach, so we stopped by Margaritaville since we were hungry. It was a nice hangout spot for tourists to start from. When it started to mist for like 30 minutes. Blake took us to shop as requested and knew the spot to go to where you can get pretty good deals compared to other giftshops we been to.
It began to dry out again so we walked along the beach which was nice to check out. Lots of vendors who are pushy but you just say a firm no a couple times and they leave you alone.
We came for the view of 7 mile beach, unfortunately the weather really has to be gorgeous to really see that amazing blue color you see in photos. Part of the beach in the distance had it so I can only imagine the whole place that color.
Afterward, we went to Rick's Cafe for late lunch. Luckily we got there early because it became very busy so quickly. It's a cool tourist spot with nice views and a DJ playing music, you have to check out, nothing like you probably seen before with cliff divers, my husband jumped off a smaller ledge!
Food was pretty good but pricey, but it is a tourist spot so what do you expect. We could've stayed for the amazing sunset everyine talks about but we had to make it back in time for dinner reservations.
Overall, the trip was nice to experience a different part of town. You really have to set expectations and know that weather affects the experience but it's hard because it can be unpredictable. I recommend this trip if you can set that in mind and really give yourself time to enjoy the sunset. I give it five stars because Blake was great. He did show up a few minutes late but apologized and made up for it with his customer service. The weather is out of anyone's control but would be perfect if the water was that famous blue I see online but still a nice time.
