One of the longest rivers on the island, Jamaica’s Black River is steeped in local folklore of danger, mystique and angry crocodiles. Be that as it may, the Black River is actually a very peaceful river and an abundance of wildlife fills the region. A treat for any traveler to the Negril region, the area is often the highlight of a Jamaican experience and it’s best to bring a camera – this is miles better than any zoo exhibit.

This idyllic palm-fringed stretch of sand was a popular hippie hang-out during the 1960’s and has since become one of Jamaica’s top resort destinations, though it still retains its laid-back Caribbean vibe.
