Rick’s Cafe is a Negril icon, and while you could argue that it’s maybe gotten too big or — like too many things in the Caribbean — been loved to death, it’s still a must-do on any trip to the west end of Jamaica.
There are at least two things that keep Rick’s relevant: cliff diving and sunsets. Perched on Negril’s cliffs (this is not a beach bar, no matter what you may have read in a “top” list online somewhere), Rick’s has weathered two hurricanes and the occasional spout of bad publicity when someone’s plunge doesn’t go well over its 40-year history.
