Diving off the cliffs at Negril from Rick’s Café
Jamaica Villas – Rick’s Café, Negril
Negril, on the westernmost tip of Jamaica is nothing if not diverse. At Negril there is a Jamaica holiday that suites everybody, from families with children to couples on honeymoon and singles that are looking to party the night away.
One of the focal points at Negril for the ‘beautiful people’ is Rick’s Cafe which is perched on the cliff tops at Negril. Rick’s was built by Richard Hershman, in April 1974. At the time, Negril was a sleepy fishing village with little development. It lacked many modern amenities such as electricity, telephone and hot running water.
Now though, Rick’s is a world famous hang-out for the great and the good who visit Negril, it is ‘the place to be seen’ and it is also a prime location for watching people dive of the Negril Cliffs into the sparkling Caribbean Sea below, a very dangerous pastime as there have been fatalities in recent years.
Rick’s Café is somewhere you can do your thing or have a great meal, you can watch fools leap from cliffs or you can just sit with a drink and watch the sun sink into the Caribbean Sea. Ask at Villas Sur Mer about Ricks Café. http://www.rickscafejamaica.com/
