"ON THE WAY TO BLACK RIVER" Black River by Sininen

Black River Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 19 photos

The car was delivered to us next morning and immediately we headed towards to south. Only after fifteen minute drive we knew that we that we would have missed a lot if we had stayed all our holiday in Negril. Jamaica's nature is so very beautiful and rich. I've never been in the tropic before and seeing how green and lush everything was was a big surprise to me. There were so many different types of palm trees, other trees which I've never seen before, bamboo forests, different flowers in bloom, many rivers. Oh, it was so very beautiful. We were heading to Black River and every time we stopped to look at the map, some Jamaicans came to us and wondered why we wanted to go there, because there was so much to see much closer. It begun to be most irritating. We took a wrong turn somewhere and ended to the town of Savana-la-Mar, where there was the weekly Saturday market and it was so full of cars and people. It looked very interesting, but we had other plans and didn't stay there. We drove to the dead end and were soon surrounded by local people. Two little boys who were begging, an old man with rasta hair, who said that we could take photos of him if we paid him and a man who made his best to persuade us to stay in Savana-la-Mar. When we left he was very surprised because we didn't give him any tip, though he had given us such good advice! We didn't get any advice from him, only were told that our plans were stupid.
