Expect what at airport? Transfers? Cabs?

Flying in April....Can anyone tell me if transfers to negril require a bus ride or private van or what I should be looking foward to for our transfer?

NWA/MLT (landing in Montego Bay).

Are there any taxes I should know about? Anything I should avoid?

Anything I should check on.

Any info would be great thank you in advance.

It's about an hour to 90 minutes from MBJ to Negril. If your stay doesn't include transfers, you should book them in advance before you leave.

You'll get lots of info here re: who to use and how much it should cost.

No Taxes, other than your Deaprture Tax which is included in your airfare already.

Immigration and Customs can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on the crowds when you arrive.

We've stayed at Grand Lido Negril and our transfers were included and were a private minivan.

That's why I asked where you were staying, different resorts/hotels include different transfer methods.

Riu Negril is the northernmost resort in Negril (if I recall) and would be one of the first stops for the bus.

I wouldn't pay the extra.
