The Blue Hole Mineral Spring/blog/things-to-do-in-negril-jamaica/
Located in the hills, the Blue Hole Mineral Spring is one of the best off the beaten path things to do in Negril, Jamaica. It sits beneath a hollow opening in the land and is completely enclosed by Karst limestone. The naturally occurring minerals in the limestone act as an underground filter. This creates the steady surge of water, leaving behind a luxuriously pure bath of minerals for visitors to enjoy.
Catamaran Sunset Cruise
A holiday to Negril is not complete without witnessing a Jamaican sunset! For the most magical experience, take a catamaran cruise. You and your loved one can watch the beautiful sunset from the deck as you sip on delicious rum punch. The best part? The cruise will be entertained by a local musician – just him and his guitar. A perfect way to end a day in the Caribbean sun, this really is one of the romantic things to do in Negril Jamaica.
A playground for adults, Margaritaville is the ideal place for those that want to let their hair down with a day of margarita sampling and beach fun. Start your day off by kicking back and relaxing in your private beachside cabana. Cool off in the sea and watch the comings and goings on Seven Mile Beach. Later hit the bar and restaurant where you can sample all types of margaritas and tasty dishes, such as ‘Jerk BBQ Pork Tacos’ or ‘Coconut Shrimp’.
