I booked a flight for my wife and I to fly into Montego Bay in the 3rd week of June. Originally I was set on going to Negril for the beaches but I'm not really sure if that's the best place for us to go anymore.
We are a married couple in our late 20's with no kids and we are staying for 5 nights. I'm starting grad school in August so I want a nice relaxing vacation but I don't want to be bored either. We've traveled a bit before (Maui, Puerto Rico, USVI, Costa Rica) and we pretty much never stay in the hotel so I like to save money on the hotel and spend more on activities and renting a car. Knowing this, I would prefer to spend less than $100 a night on a safe place to sleep and put our belongings but we can afford spend more than that if it's worth it. Obviously, we won't do an AI with that price, plus we don't even drink alcohol.
I love to snorkel and my wife loves to lounge but she's a good sport when I take her on activities like biking, rafting, boating, etc.
Does Negril still sound like the best choice or Ocho Rios?
