What's the Craic in Montego Bay

Getting married at secrets in feb and have a few Lil questions if anyone could take a few mins I would be very grateful

What's the weather like in feb???

Is it safe to get taxis from outside the resort???

Is it worthwhile taking tours to negril or ochio rios

would it be easier to hire a private driver and do a couple of attractions in one day???

would u need to be a strong swimmer to go snorkelling ???

Thanks :0)

Its hot and sunny. 29c low 24c, 85f low 75f. It is safe t ogo off the resort. There should be taxis right outside the gate. Use taxis with red plates, ask the driver the charge before driving off. Would go to Negril for the day. Reggae Tours is great. You dont need to be a strong swimmer to swim off the beach. If you go out to the Marine Park via boat, you should be a pretty good swimmer. They do give you a life jacket to wear.

It's recommended to get taxis off the resort and not on the resort. You'll save yourself some money. As stated, just make sure they have red plates on them and negotiate your final price before getting in.

Either location is worth taking a tour to. And you can either book a tour through the resort or hire a private driver and have them take you. We've done it both ways and each have their benefits.

There is a list of recommended drivers listed at the top right of the page. Contact a few before you go and see what they can set up for you.
