We have booked a room at the Shaw Park Beach Hotel, and I am wondering if we will need a car? We are not staying all-inclusive, so we will want to go to town or to other restaurants. We are flying into Montego Bay Airport, and if taxis to Ocho Rios are super expensive, it probably makes more sense to rent a car. (but I have no idea of the cost of either taxis or rental cars)
Also, I would love any recommendations on favorite restaurants or excursions as this is our very first time to Jamaica!
