Getting around the islands can be half the adventure of discovering new rum.

Default 10 days in Jamaica

Vacationing for 10 days early this September. Planning on hitting the Appleton Estate Tour. Making my way down the coast from Montego Bay-Negril-Treasure Beach. Several questions for any veterans, previous visitors..

Any recommendations on cool bars, smooth drinks, knowledgeable bartenders or jerk shacks I shouldn't miss?

If I were to bring home some rare and/or good value bottles of rum, what would I search for?

Has anyone shipped packages via DHL from Jamaica to USA or Canada??

Any comments appreciated...

Cheers!

We spend twice a year in the Negril/Treasure Beach area (May and November)
Is this your first trip?
Will send more detail when I get back home this weekend. Check out Negril.com or webcasts on Realnegril.com

Have been to Appleton twice.
Do you already have reservations in the Negril Area?

I met these guys at the Bacardi Museum at Rum Rennaissance in Miami. They are serious rum lovers and have a great hotel in Negril:-

If you do not have a place to stay, try this site negrilonestop.com....good people and lots of places to review and all with good pictures on the website . In Negril, we never do all inclusives, but there are many choices..with great food (cheap) and lots of great bars......either beach or cliffs...We stay on the cliffs at Tensing Pen mostly but have stayed a numerous places over the years.

Yes Aqua has a serious rum bar, I plan on trying in November...over 50 types of rum, . If you are in need of a driver (I would not ever suggest renting a car) I can provide a great and safe one...and he does great tours into the mountains, Treasure Beach area...and to Appleton, Black river or the Pelican Bar. Feel free to email me for more info.

Had a blast in PR. It was hard work being right after Miami, but well organized and worth the trip. Might try and get to Negril next summer, taking the rugrats to Orlando this summer, then off to Cayman to see some rum underwater!! Are you still on the Edwin Charley? I have yet to crack mine, now have 3 of the 4. Trying to get it here, but W&N won't sell it to us yet.

We usually stay at Tensing Pen in Negril and they have the EC Collection...have not tried the rum, but the bottles are fantastic...quite a collectors item.
