Tensing Pen is a cool place to stay, especially for couples. The cabins are simple, but beautiful, contain everything they need (a bed, furniture to sit on, and even a refrigerator) and the surroundings are a pleasure to the eye. It is quiet, personnel does not bother you if you do not want to be bothered, and the restaurant serves high quality food, although a little limited in choice. But that provides you with the opportunity to check out other places, down the road.
We arrived in Montego Bay, where we had rented a car at Thrifty. Service at Thrifty is below par: they had not filled up the tank, which we found out only when we were well on our way, because all your attention is needed to focus what happens on the road. Driving on Jamaica is not for the faint of heart: it is supposed to be the third dangerous country in the world to drive a car in. But it is doable, especially when you take it slowly, , driving on the wrong side of the road and facing the local drivers with a death wish. However, it meant that it took us nearly two hours to make the rip from M'bay to Negril (60 miles).
