Negril - Scuba and Things to Do

We will be staying at the Rockhouse in March for five days.

Any recommendations for scuba diving - shops and dive sites?

We would also be interested in exploring a bit outside of the resort itself for an afternoon and/or night out, and would love any suggestions!

Thanks!

Lots of good scuba shops in Negril.

Closest to you is probably at Samsara hotel down the road.

Since Rockhosue is a pretty small resort - more of a boutique hotel I'd call it, I'd say you'll probably explore a lot. Some authentic and inexpensive Jamaican food is next door at Sips n Bites. Lots of restaurants within walking or short taxi distance on the cliffs and for a $5pp or so taxi, on the beach as well.

the beach is public so you can go swim anywhere, to use loungers at a beach hotel or restaurant it is expected that you buy drinks or food.

I'd suggest a day or half day in the interior swimming in or climbing a waterfall, taking a boat trip out to a reef (if you dive you'll do this anyway), or any number of things that appeal to you...Jamaica has a lot of neat things to do away form the coast in the mountains and jungle, lots of that involves water (rafting, kayaking, swimming, etc) or hiking.

When we stayed at Rock House 2 years ago, they booked a dive for us, but I do not remember the operator's name. We just went with what they suggested and it waa an OK dive, actually a little better than I expected.
