Riu ocho rios Taxi

Hey everyone. My wife and I and a few frinds are going to the Riu in Ocho Rios April 24th for some much needed fun in the sun. I read in an earlier review that some people hired a taxi driver to be their driver for the day to go into town and have fun shopping, sight seeing and do the jerk chicken thing and maybe Margeritaville. This sounds like a great idea. Where is the best place to find a good honest driver? The front desk? Just outside the resort. The beach? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Tired of shoveling in Pennsylvania,

Go to the front where the taxi drivers are and ask for Claude. He is an absolutely fantastic person. You won't be disappointed!

Hi there! I, too, am a Pennsylvanian (I live about 25 miles south of Harrisburg) and booked a last minute trip after we had 4-feet of snow at our house! It was exactly what we needed. I went with a friend and we had a fantastic time! We were there for 7 days from 3/19-3/25 and had such a great time that I think we are going back again next year.

I am trying to find someone who can help me track down one of the guys who gave me a jet ski ride. He gave me a 'thank you' ride for doing him a favor. When we got back from the ride we were late for dinner reservations and I had to run. Although his ride was a thank you ride, I wanted to give him some $$ for his time and gas. However, we only had one more full day at the resort and he wasn't there that next day so I never got to pay him. One of the other jet ski guys said he would give it to him but I was afraid Collin would never see the $$ so I declined. I am trying to find someone who is going in the near future to do me a huge favor and see if they can get me an e-mail address as well as a mailing address for him. Collin did mention about us trading e-mail addresses but we never got a chance to do it. If you are willing to try to help me out, I have a close-up picture of him that may help you to pick him out. Plus most of the jet ski guys (and I believe the Scuba Caribe guys) know who he is.
