Very last minute booking between Jamaica or the Caribbean side of Mexico

Jump to last reply

Fellow fodorites.. Hope all is wonderful and well!

Fiance and I (30 yrs old) are working on trying to put together a very last minute get away for a 4-5 night stay on a light budget from Nov 26 or 27 - Dec 1 or 2. From what I know and reading the forums over the years, Jamaica or MX are my best choices for this trip. Here's where my fellow travels come in: Please help with your two pennies btwn the the two destinations. Considerations are for Negril or Ochos Rios in Jamaica and PDC, Isla Mujers or Cozumel in MX.
Is 7mile beach in Negril private or public?

*Here is this vacay's wish list:
Small resort feel with a steps (not miles) to the resorts private beach and pools (small beach is ok)
What i mean by small resort is 75-150 rooms (give or take a few) - not really feeling the mega resort super dooper hotel zone like a cancun feel.
Dont need the luxurious Ritz but not subpar either- a place with up kept grounds and rooms (lest the mildew, grime, dirt and rundown look)
Swim-able beach
Adult, not kid friendly (doesnt have to be all mushy mushy couples only but you get the jest)
True ocean-view rooms
Dont want a resort that folds past 10 unless there is some bars/small clubs within close proximity

Extremely grateful of all help and opinions.
