I remember Chicken Lavish. My first trip to Negril was in 1980. Not much happening there at that time.

Yeah, Jamaica has gotten pretty expensive. Banana Shout is still relatively inexpensive, I think.

We are about to book the Coco la Palms (is it just me or is that a great stripper name?) for March 2- woot!

But after 21 trips for Don and 16 for me, with only one other measly trip for me to Cuba, we figured it was about time we expanded our horizons, just a bit.
Guess what? The price of that Cocolapalms package just went up this morning by $350 per person. We knew we should have booked it Sunday! But something else will come up...we will look for a nice place on the cliffs. If only our stupid airfares from here weren't so $$.
Great report Maggie...

I cant wait to hear about your next trip...I have got an envie to try some place new as well.

My husband and I have been to Negril 3 times and have always stayed at Couples Swept Away. Cocolapalm is right down the beach, and looks like a great place! I'm sure you guys will have a wonderful time. Seven mile beach is GORGEOUS! If you get a chance take a trip to Pirates Cave to watch the sunset and snorkel in the caves, pretty nice little afternoon activity. You made the right choice choosing Negril, we were in Ocho rios over Christmas, and really missed the beach in Negril.

Thank you! Negril has always been the only place I want to go in Jamaica (other than day trips, I mean, to stay at)...because of the beach.

We are actually staying at Rooms Negril now, we went to book Cocolapalm and it was booked up for the week we want to go. But it sounds like Rooms is just our type of place, too.

Thanks for the tip about Pirates Cave, too.

Hi, great report! My wife and I are spending 2 weeks next January in Los Ayala and I was wondering if you had a chance to check it out. I understand it is a ten minute walk to the south of Rincon just around the point. I am a very avid fisherman and was wondering if your husband enquired while you were there.

Again, wonderful report and pics!!

Thank you!

I believe Los Ayala is just another town in walking distance from where we were staying in Guayabitos, just over the hill to the south, yes.

That is where there is a second beach club for this hotel we stayed at, but other guests told us it was pretty much the same as Rincon, just less busy/smaller town. But since it was xmas week it was just as crowded as Guayabitos was! So we actually never went there to check it out!


Although Don went kayak fishing a couple times, and he says it looked pretty nice and very quiet....after the xmas week crowds would be a far better choice to go to this area, it was just so busy.

I am sure you will have a wonderful trip....make sure to walk over and chek out this bay too. And Sayulita and/or San Pancho would also make good choices for day trips as well.

Thanks Rissask

Friends of ours have spent the last five years in Los Ayala but aren't much for fishing so I thought I would ask, and yes we will certainly will be checking out the rest of the bay as I can only sit and soak up sun without snooping around for so long.

I just realized I never really answered your question!

I think the best fishing in that area is out at the Marietas or another banks area about an hour ride out from the PV marina- but you can just chat with some local fishermen in Los Ayala too and arrange to go out with them for a few hours one morning.



We also have gone fishing twice with Fidel of 'Fidel's Tours' in Sayalita- about a 20 minute cab ride south of Los Ayala- so that is a possibility too.

Contact info here:

The amount of fish they were bringing in and making makeshift fish markets along the beach in Guayabitos that xmas week was staggering! Piles and piles of shrimp and oysters and all types of fish.
