Negril is still fairly underdeveloped, that remains a significant factor in its undoubted charm. This may not last, as the new highway from Montego Bay and an improved infrastructure may bring more tourists. In recent years it has also become a popular location for U.S. college students to visit during spring break. Find out more about Negril here...

The name "Negril" is a shortened version of "Negrillo," as it was originally named by the Spanish in 1494. The name is thought to be a reference to the black cliffs south of the village. Although Negril has a long history, it did not become well known until the second half of the twentieth century.

Negril's development as a resort location began during the late 1950s, though access to the area proved difficult as ferries were required to drop off passengers in Negril Bay, forcing them to wade to shore. Many vacationers would rent rooms inside the homes of local Jamaican families, or would pitch tents in their yards. The area's welcoming and hospitable reputation grew over the years and the first of many resorts were constructed in the mid to late 1960s. Read more about Negril's history.
