  • Driving from Negril to Ocho Rios

    Good Day all!!!

    Just need a little help with driving. We are thinking of renting a car and heading up to Ocho Rios from Negril. Is the drive ok with the new roads or are there major bumps and potholes in the road.

    This would be the first time driving a long distance in Negril.

    It says it's about 3 hours to get to Ochi, Is that accurate?


    Any advice would be great. I actually want to know the route as well, Do we stay on one main road or are we going to need to get on other roads along the drive.

    Thanks again for any anwers. It will be on a Saturday morning by the way, just to get traffic issues out of the way.

      I am sure someone will come soon with the details ... it has been nearly 15 years since I have been to Ochi ... and back then we took the main coast road there ... that main road has VASTLY improved since then. It was a pretty simple path ...

      We did cross country interior path on the return ... that was spectacular!! I have no clue what that route was ...

        Negril to Ochi is a nice smooth drive all the way. No bumps, no rough road, no fear of dropping down in the gully, just smooth. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

        You don't need to get off at all, just hug the coast and enjoy the view. You pass through a couple of small towns, but you bypass the traffic in Mobay and you don't even see Falmouth. Of course you can stop for food and drink (isn't that half the fun of traveling in JA?). The only time you have to slow down is when you pass through the small towns, and on the Mobay bypass road.

            Cooke blvd, (I think that's the name) its been there for a while now. Before you had to go through downtown traffic to get pass Mobay. Now you can circle around the perimiter of Mobay without having to deal with bumper to bumper traffic.

                      Is there a clear sign that says bypass Or do I have to look for Cook Blvd? So basically I would be traveling the road that gets me into Negril and then going on further to Ochi?

                        Thanks for the pic! A little less scary, I think I'm gonna try to bring an English girl with me that is currently residing in Negril. I know she travels all over the Island.

                          The road splits. I don't know if there is a sign, but you can see one section going right into Mobay town, and the other runs along the coastline. The bypass is to the left, but even if you miss it, you will just go through traffic. The roads merge back together once you pass downtown.

                              In the town part of Mobay? or on the road heading to Falmouth? I know when I was there, the portion of highway near Flankers was being worked on.
