Montego Bay & Negril (photo by Robin Chalkley)

Montego Bay and Negril are located in western Jamaica, about 42 miles (66 km) apart.

Montego Bay (MoBay) is the second largest city in the island and its main travel hub, with the largest international airport and the most flights. It is also known for its beaches and active nightlife.

Negril, on the western tip of the island, is smaller and more relaxed. In addition to its white-sand beaches and memorable sunsets, it is known for cliff diving, involving both locals and visitors.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
