My husband and I went to Ocho Rios for our honeymoon two years ago, and are heading back to JA (Negril this time) 4/23 for a family vacation. One of my favorite things to do was to go across the street from our resort to visit the vendors who had all the awesome (AND CHEAP!) wood carvings, beach attire, jewlry, etc. We had a blast negotiating with the local vendors - even my husband did! We ended up bringing a bunch of stuff home with us and it really added some extra fun to our trip. Just for example, we bought a 28" X 15" beautiful hand carved wood tropical fish that was completely finished for under $20!!! Anyway, I'm wondering if any of the Negril regulars can tell me if there are little shops like that close to Beaches Sandy Bay. I know there will be vendors on the beach, but I didn't find the selection that way, and they didn't seem to want to negotiate as much. Besides, we made friends with some of the vendors and went back several times.
Your response is appreciated!
...3 weeks to go!!! :)
