Ride to Negril and time difference from States to Jamaica
I read on the FAQ page that the ride to Negril is 1 hr 15 min, however I think I also read on the message board somewhere that the roads are being worked on and that the ride is considerably longer than that. Can anybody that has recently came back from CN let me know if the road work is an issue and how long the ride was?
Also, what is the time difference right now between Jamaica time and EST? Someone said it was an hour back but I also heard it wasn't, so I'm a little confused.
I was just there 2 weeks ago. The ride is still about 1.25 hours. There was a tad of road work, but it didn't hold us up. The time difference is, yes, one hour behind EST. I thought it was the same also, but nope.
We just got back from CSA on Saturday and the shuttle drive there which was on a Monday around 1, it took about two hours due to construction being done. They stopped half way, was a nice ride though. Coming back on a Saturday only an hour and a half.
Some like the Tim Air flight which has a cost associated with it. Many others prefer the bus or van ride as it lets you see a side of Jamaica you don't see from the air.
The crowded city road as you wind your way out of Montego Bay. The many various shops full of Jamaicans and tourist alike shopping. The scenic drive along the coast on the way to Negril shows alot of the unspoiled beauty the island has to offer.
