Planning my first trip to Negril, Jamaica in mid August 2013 (5 nights). We plan to experience different local food and drinks so we are leaning towards a non AI setup. I have read great reviews about the Idle Awhile hotel. Looking for a good balance between one on one time and party time.
Is it worth it to go for a cheaper AI just to cover drinks? We pan to almost always eat outside the resort.
If we go the non AI route, how much money should be budgeted for food and drink(2 people) per day?
Any recommended excursions?
Recommendations for travel around the island? I have read it will be a 1.5hr taxi ride from the airport.
Please offer any additional thoughts. Thanks!
