BTW - in Jamaica, inless you're on an organized tour, I would highly discourage leaving the resort to explore on your own... its downright dangerous. Same with Punta Cana...

Jamaica is not safe in my opinion. I went for the first and last time a few years ago. I was in Ocho Rio's at a Sandals. Maybe Negril is better. Been to a lot of the Caribbean and Jamaica is LAST on the list for a return. You can do much better at a dozen other place, heck throw a dart and you will be better of than there.

100% agree - No offense to those that like Jamaica, but I think it sucks (like I do Mexico outside of Cozumel).

We never left the resort in Negril except for the booze cruise, a zip-lining trip, and a few walks off the property to other beaches. Never any incidents and I was never too worried about it. I spent a week there and never ran out of things to do. The south side of the island has way better water too.

headed to Maui next month, and scuba with hammerheads, then I read this...

the 30 ft from shore and 10 feet water depth don;t seem to add up to me for some reason...

I've been to both, and didn't have issues either place!

Deciding if an all inclusive would be worth it? We don't like being stuck on a resort unless there's plenty of things to do. We would rather be exploring. Also does anyone have any sites they reccomend for booking the trip? I usually use orbitz.
So, what did you decide on....?

Nothing yet haha. Sounds like Bahamas is where we will go. We've always wanted to go to Atlantis.

Rockhouse in Negril is one of the coolest places I have ever been - The Stones used to stay there back in the day. It's on that '100 places to see before you die list.' A couple of Aussies own it and it is all little cabanas built on cliffs, you take little bridges everywhere. I spent a little too much time there in my 20s...a guy can get in a lot of trouble with a few bottles of rum and a hankering to get into a dominoes game with some locals. Long story short, bought a goat and took it to my friend's wedding, met up with a bridesmaid and the 3 of us woke up embarrassed by the pool in the morning. Can't beat it.
