Just came back from mobay and you are definitely correct. We visited negril did a tour outside the main city of mobay and visited 9 mile. You definitely see the differences between authentic jamaican culture and the commercial version. Don’t get me wrong we did goto kfc which is a must compared to what we get out here. We had a private driver that took us around. As for OP always be careful our driver showed us places that he would not even get out of his car for.
I’m gonna sum it up pretty easily, your experience will be mostly dependent on who you choose as a driver/tour operator. Some tour operators stick together the usual, I know a who are not the usual. They will take you to the corner food stalls, sometimes they have a house party and cook for their guests. In terms of attractions. Appleton rum tour, Ys falls, black river safari, Floyd’s pelican bar, rafting on the Martha brae..etc
Thank you for the summary. Couldn’t agree more - hopefully I can find a hidden gem, you have any company recommendations for drivers? I generally find those who go above and beyond however are independent or part of smaller/family companies so imma do my research forsure. Tourist attractions sound proper however. any recommendations for events/day-to-day life of the general pop?
You can check our morelife_tours, downtoearthtours, mikes_transportation_ja, or travelwithdavidricketts on Instagram, these are tour operators that I know personally. They will make sure you have a memorable vacation.. dad to day life if we not going to work we are chilling by a river or at the beach, for others it going out for food..
