Lucea- (Lew SEE) - between Montego Bay and Negril
Contest Entry #22 - Lucea - Between Mobay and Negril
On route to Negril passed by a quaint fishing village called Lucea (lew see)
Its just outside of Mo-Bay. Now you see it now you don't. Our "bus" driven passed by in a blur - but it caught my eye and I said if I went back to Jamrock this is a place I would definitely stay for a while.
It was charming with the colourful shanties - the street vendors are obviously cool and there is some humour evidenced by the hand painted board advertising McJerk Chicken.
This secret gem called out to me immediately it was very idyllic and I imagined one could spend countless hours lazing in a hammock watching the local fishermen or taking some pics, painting pics, reading a book, chillin and in general just meeting some locals in a laid back casual village.
I think it also has the bar out on the tides, walk out and ride in! now that's an attraction that was on my radar!
Last year friends returned ( they go often) to Jamrock (Jamaica) and said they stayed at a new Royal Decameron Resort here in LUCEA!! What??? We stayed at the the original about 3 yrs ago in Montego - it was clean, fun and well run with great and friendly staff!
The best beach on the strip too and not too overboard on the hotel side of things - good times! Jamaica they say "Once you go YOU KNOW!" I know and I'd go again - this time, straight to Lucea and then wander on.
