How to Spend 2 Days in Negril
With two days in Negril, you’ll have plenty of time to relax on the beach, plus enjoy some of the outdoor opportunities that await in and around this resort town on Jamaica’s western edge. Here are a few ways to create a 48-hour itinerary that suits your interests.
Day 1: The best of Negril
**Morning:**Get your bearings in Negril on a private sightseeing tour that introduces you to the area’s top attractions. If you prefer to be on the water, hop on a catamaran to nearby destinations such as Floyd’s Pelican Bar.
**Afternoon:**Hit the beach for sunbathing and swimming; try parasailing, snorkeling, or bodyboarding; or go on a glass-bottom boat tour. Alternatively, cool off at Kool Runnings Water Park, across the street from the beach.
**Night:**With its west-facing location, Seven Mile Beach is the ideal place to watch the sunset. Or, embark on a sunset cruise to Rick’s Café, a popular bar atop coastal cliffs that spring breakers love to jump off. Then, if you’re in the mood to party, head out on a nightlife tour of Negril’s best bars and clubs.
Day 2: More of the island
**Morning:**For a break from the salty ocean, take a dip in Jamaica’s fresh water. Spend a few hours at Black River and YS Falls, where you can climb the waterfall’s seven tiers and take a pontoon ride. Some tours include a stop at the Appleton rum estate.
**Afternoon:**Time for a little adventure. Drive along the mangroves in an all-terrain vehicle; explore the beach on horseback; or zoom around the jungle on ziplines.
**Night:**Learn about Jamaican cuisine—and how to make a few dishes—with a dinner experience at Zimbali Mountain Cooking Studio, just inland from Negril. Alternatively, head to the island’s north coast for a boat ride across the Luminous Lagoon, where shimmering microorganisms make the dark water glow.
