    We felt that the best excursion was from our room down to the beautiful beach

    Here’s a post about the Black River/YS Falls/Appleton Estate Tour and Cosmo’s:

    "Try the Black River Safari/YS Falls/Appleton Estate tour. We took it from CN 3 yrs ago. It was only $95/pp and totally worth it. You travel along the southern coast thru a few towns to the town of Black River. First is the river safari, which is pretty cool, and you eat lunch at a local cafe right there. Then you travel into the hills to YS Falls, which is absolutely beautiful, and finally to Appleton Estate, the rum distillery. You get to see a wide variety of the Jamaican countryside, far away from all the hotels and mega-resorts, but you are only in the van for maybe a total of 4 hours all day. I've heard that the Dunn's tour is about 3-4 hours one way and is NOT worth the long drive from Negril. I've been told to save that tour for an Ocho Rios trip.

    If you just want some killer Jamaican food off-site, but close to CSA, you have to try Cosmo's. We went there with 3 or 4 other couples and had a blast. Plus, the food is AWESOME. I had the curried goat, even though the others shied away, and it was incredible. They also have a great selection of fresh seafood and many other Jamaican dishes. It is only a 5 min ride south of CN."

    Probably wouldn't consider Rick's an excursion, but you could definitely go for a sunset.

    I did some research on the zipline canopy tour and here's that post:

    "We are planning on doing this in Nov, while we're at CN. I called Chukka Caribbean and they said the closest zipline to Negril is the Montpelier Jungle Outpost, which is south of MoBay in the hills. It is 1hr 20mins from CN, so about the same from CSA. The experience lasts about 2hrs. The cost is $90pp, which includes transportation from the resort, and you can get more info on their website. If you do this one, please post a review when you get back. Have fun on your trip!"

    hire a personal driver head to mayfield falls only abt 40 min away then go to whitehouse (small fishing village) or bluefield beach then have the driver take you too the lighthouse (just past ricks) then on to ricks for the sunset then back all in a dayyoull be able to stop wherever you like for food drinks etc and really get to see Jamaica

    Wow, hope you aren't going to try to do all of those things! Just relax and let the sand gravity take over. Don't "overplan" your trip to paradise. Let things happen as they happen...Take advantage of the resort activities. That's my best advice. And one more thing, go for an early morning run on the beach. or a walk. Just get your day started right to help absorb all those extra calories..!! Don't be afraid to take a little snooze in the afternoon, to get you energized for the night!
