We are spending a few days with friends at a resort near Montego Bay. Then transferring to Hedo for 5 days. Any advice on how to arrange transportation between the two resorts? (and back to the airport?)

My #1 recommendation would be Rocky's Taxi and Tour Service. I've known Rocky and used the services of his company for may years and firmly believe he has a highly professional and reasonably priced operation.

You can book their services online, call them, or contact them via email. All their info, and rates, are on their website at:

Another vote for booking a private taxi. Cost for that is around $60-70US plus tip. We've used 2 drivers many times each. PM if you'd like contact info. The way to arrange transport is to book it ahead of time. You can do that by phone for virtually any driver (like ours), or go with a larger company on-line. They'll pick you up at your resort whenever you choose. Easy as pie.

Rocky's certainly get plaudits from many, and so does "Mr Reasonable" Linley Grant at linleygrant@yahoo.com. I've used Linley for years--timely courteous etc.

This question will get as many different answers are those who post a reply.

I have used http://luxuriouscaribtoursjamaica.com for years and years. Safe drivers, never late for a pick up, clean cars, drink on the way to the resort, priced attractively.

They offer one way transport from MBJ (or any where in Montego Bay) to Negril for just US$60 for up to 4 persons. Now, if your resort "near Montego Bay" means it is in Falmouth, Oyster Bay or Ocean Coral, then the transfer rate will be higher.

Just a reminder that I ask that prices not be posted on the message board. I've run into situations where people take those prices as gospel then bitch at me when they find out there was a price increase.

Thanks.

I highly recommend Rocky's. Great drivers, safe, and have all of the appropriate paperwork per Jamaican regulations. Super nice people and I wouldn't use anyone else.

I've known him a long time and think he's a really good guy. He and his organization will do anything they can to help you and provide excellent service. If you haven't done so already, you can tell them whether you'd prefer cold water or cold beer for the ride down to Hedo and he'll make sure it's available in the car when they pick you up.

I know this thread is a few weeks old, but there is another on moving between resorts or going off property.

Did you have any hassle staying in mobay then moving to negril for part 2 of your trip? Thanks!

Right now, you are not allowed to do more than one hotel/resort without staying 14-days in the first location. That can change at most any time.
