Lucea

Is there anything worth seeing in Lucea? Are there any beach markets near the Palladium? Is there a tour available to Negril without Rick's Cafe etc.? Can you walk from Rick's Cafe into the town/city of Negril? Thanks

When you go off resort you can walk into the town of Lucea and get some culture and history; there are many rum bars along the way.

You can hire a driver to take you to Negril for the day. Ricks is on the cliffs-maybe spend the day on the beach then drive to the cliffs-take a walk around and check out the lighthouse; some cliff divers than have a sunset dinner.

PEACE!

Lucea is not a tourist town and it is some distance from the Palladium — more that I would want to walk along a road with no sidewalks. Here is were Palladium is located: wikimapia.org/…b The Palladium is in the center of the image and Lucea is to the left. The walk is over 3 miles.

There is the old court house with a clock in its tower that was supposed to be delivered to the island of St. Lucia but found its way to Lucea, Jamaica. The is a very old fort (Fort Charlotte) in poor condition and it is free to visit. Also, not so far is the second Dolphin Cove though not as large as the one on the North Coast.

Even though Lucea is in the direct path between MoBay and Negril, it has failed to leverage itself as a destination even after the Palladium was built. I have the impression that the residents of Lucea would prefer to keep it that way.

Negril is 45 minutes away. Might consider planning a romantic dinner at Ivan's located in the CatchA Falling Star resort which opens to the public at around 5pm. Great view of the sunset and a fabulous dinner, especially when lobster season is open although the blacken snapper was delicious.
