The road to Negril was cut just 50 years ago. People came to the small fishing village, saw the now-world-famous beaches, the sunsets, the reefs, and then just, kind of, hung out for a while, y'know? It took almost 20 more years for the first resort to open up, and that pace pretty much sums up the vibe of this Western Jamaica town.

Cruise into the Westender Inn in Negril, a 2012 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice award winner, by way of that half-decade-old route from Montego Bay for a five-night stay for two in an Oceanside Deluxe room ($442), pleasantly tucked away from the tourist drag in a private cove in the peaceful West End.

Get up, stand up, and wake up to the sound of waves lapping at your personal beachfront with a cup of Jamaican coffee and complimentary breakfast. Then, slap on the sunscreen (a shot glass-full every two hours) and join an expenses-paid excursion to the renowned Seven Mile Beach. Just off the shoreline, the nearly 100-square-mile Negril Marine Park offers excellent reefs and wrecks for snorkeling and diving.

Head for higher ground on your included trip to West End Road, and take in the reggae and westward views, Red Stripe in hand (hooray beer!), atop the 40-foot sea cliffs at Rick's Cafe. It's the area's first public bar, opened in 1974, and for those looking to show off their real courage—not of the liquid variety—Rick's boasts a number of cliff-diving platforms with deep, crystal-clear water below.

Like the music, which you'll hear everywhere, Jamaica's fare cannot be missed. For some local flavor, try the jerk chicken and pork—heavy on the allspice and Scotch bonnet peppers—from Jenny's while you mingle with native Jamaicans.

Accommodations and beaches and food and people—they're all part of it. But, at it's core, vacationing is about experiencing a change of pace from your normal routine, and, well, Negril, mon, it's definitely got that, y'know?

  • "You'll soon find yourself falling in love with Negril's insouciance and its scintillating 11-km-long beach sliding gently into calm waters reflecting a palette of light blues and greens."
