This is strictly for tourist. The prices are in US currency but they give you Jamaican currency as change as if they have no US currency. I purchased a bag from the store and watched the lady taking US currency out the register to the back.Upon purchasing the bag the lady handed me Jamaican currency as change. I told her no!!! I want my change in US currency. She act as if she didn't understand and didnt have anything but Jamaican currency in her register. I very nicely said " Ma'am I just saw the other associate taking US currency from the register". She said I'll be back. She removed herself from the store lobby and went to the back to retrieve my change. Please pay attention to this things especially at Rick's. Also the locals hang out right outside and make you uncomfortable

Went to Negril for a day tour from Runaway Bay. LOVED Rick's cafe and the cliff diving. Friendly staff, amazing vibe and energy. Clear blue waters. A must see, definitely

Went to Rick's on an excursio from MoBay. Loved the atmosphere! The food was ok...We ordered the sampler platter and was told they did not have the cheese nips (mozzarella stick type things) and instead would be getting chips and salsa...not exactly a great trade but whatever. Fried shrimp were really good though. Loved watching the cliff divers! I jumped off one of the smaller cliffs, the bigger one was just too high and I didn't want to injure myself. They have a pool to relax in and cool off and still have a view of the jumpers which was nice. it was a cloudy day so our sunset was nice at "Ricks" best but it was still beautiful! It is very touristy...but I would definitely go back. Our trip to Ricks included some time at Margaritaville and shopping, which next time I would skip....Rick's was the highlight!

my friend recomended we go to ricks as she has been she said its nice to sit and watch the divers.
so thought its a day out bit shopping etc.
But when i got there to ricks it was buzzing the place was full of good vibes nice people
music was chilled staff happy to serve.
OK a little pricey but its worth it
we stood by the diving rocks and its amazing how when there jumping of the highest part people wont to talk to you ( i shouted for nearly every one )
then spider climbs up a tree to the rockiest piece of wood i have ever seen and for $20 he will dive into the see for you that gives it more atmosphere again
sunset was fab and i loved the old Reggie group sining and jamming to gether
made me wish i had of been there for the whole of my holiday.
sadly we had to go tour over my next time it will be in negrill 1 mile from ricks
forgot to mention the bathrooms are spotless x

Nice view. Prices vary for the same beer at Rick's. If you are over 40, you might want to forego the dive and consider it a spectator sport.
