Exotic Travels in Negril
There is a place in the Caribbean where the waters are warm,
the beaches are unspoiled and the weather is moderate year-round.
More and more people arrive every year to enjoy it's white sand,
stretching for more than seven miles. The locals are friendly
and the flora is lush. This place is called Negril.
Negril is situated on the western shore of the island of Jamaica,
and is probably the most attractive and pristine place on the
island. All along the coast of Jamaica, large resorts have popped
up over the last 20 years, and none more than in Negril, and for
good reason. Ask any Jamaican where the most beautiful beaches
on the island are lcoated, and they'll all tell you the same thing
- in Negril.
In no wonder that these large resort chains have all been attracted
to Negril. If you've ever been there or seen pictures of it's
spectacular scenery, you'd know why. Large all inclusive resorts
have made quite an impact on the tourism industry in Negril in
recent decades, but those who know better choose to steer clear
of the large resorts and invest in an experience that puts them
into the heart of what Jamaica really has to offer.
Jamaica has a complex culture rooted deep in the islands history,
and you'll certainly be unable to connect with any of this islands
unique culture by bottling yourself up in a resort. Most of the
large resorts in Negril actually discourage their patrons from
leaving the resort grounds. They will even tell travelers that
Jamaica is unsafe, so as to keep their and their tourist dollars
within their resorts.
But in actually, Negril is probably the safest, most laid back
place within the whole of Jamaica, full of freindly locals nd
wonderful experiences to be had. For visitors who are stuck within
the large resorts, there is a whole world of fun and excitement
that they are missing out on. Many of these large resorts do offer
great food, fun and entertainment, but none of it is what you'll
find in Jamaica. So why come all the way to Jamaica to miss out
out on what Jamaica has to offer.
Those who know choose to stay in a villa in Negril rather than
the many large resorts that dominate areas of Negril Beach. But
don't worry, Negril Beach is over seven miles long, and there's
plenty of Beach left for those who want to experience the real
Jamaica. In fact, Negril Beach is large enough that you can even
escape the many Jamaica villas that run it's length, and settle
into a peaceful spot where you can relax in the Jamaican sun if
that's what you would like to do.
Another element of Jamaican culture that you'll miss out out on
when you choose to spend your Jamaican Vacation in a large resort,
will be the incredible myriad of unique and delicious Jamaican
food. Jamaican cuisine is a collection of dishes that have their
roots far into the island's past, beginning with the Native Indians
who first inhabited the island, to the Spanish conquerors who
followed, to the rest of the caribbean cultures throughou the
region. But the people of Jamaica have put their own stamp on
their unique collection of dishes created from this rich history,
and you'll certainly find non of it on the menu in a large resort.
