What do I need to know before moving to Negril?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Negril, they said:

"it's important to be where you feel safe and where you are close to what is important, be it the beach and the nightlife, or the friends you've made, or other ex-pats..i would rent on the beach, and meet people, before deciding where you want to live...even if you've been a vacationer, it's not the same one you live there...get used to everything being at a much slower pace, and going without electricity and water, sometimes...but there is never a lack of something go on, where there is music and laughter and people..," said another expat in Negril.

"Things change often here in Jamaica. It's best you contact a person you know for advice on current living conditions or accommodations. I run a blog at http://www.jamaicamax.com with details on current market condition's in Negril and Jamaica," added another person living in Negril.
