15Thanks aminata, I have thought about cuba, no problems about puff. If i rocked up in cuba and got out of the city would it be possible to find a room with some locals for around £20 a day? All i need is accsess to a beach/swimming pool, not worried about nightlife. Basically i have around £50 a day but i don't want to have to count pennies. As i said i am recovering from illness so good food and a stress free place would be enough.
ps i have travelled widely and usually just trust that all will be well, and it usually is, i don't want to go somewhere and then have to leave a few weeks later due to lack of money

17there is a little bed and breakfast place in Parottee , breakfast is about $3-4 US , Dinner $7 US >nightly rates are about $3500 ..negiotiable if yu are staying a month or more ... They have a resaurant on property and you will be right on the beach... smokes are oK ..they retired to Jamaica from the UK call Barb Powell 876- 965 2780 Restaurant number is 876-379 5224
Remember to negiotiate the per nite price if yu are staying a month or more...
Parottee is close to Treasure Beach
I am sure you will find something similar in Negril or cheaper with lots of food places . If yu eat where the locals eat , your meals will be cheap and filling ... good luck ..
info on places to stay , eat ,travel info is available from frequesnt visitors to Negril at
For similar info on the Treasure Beach area ..

18Thank you, I am going the third week of january. Ideally i want to stay a month, maybe 6 weeks. The cheaper i can get by on the longer i can stay. As i said before i don't usually need everything in place before i travel but this time due to my recent illness i can't risk it. I don't mind paying a bit more for a few days while i look around for a place.
thank you everyone for your help

22Thanks, the fares to both airports seem similar, so i reckon a flight to mobay plus an arranged pick up, (or an honest taxi driver, are there any in the world?) to negril will suit me fine.
Thanks for everybodys feed back i will post a few last questions in a month or so, like "where can i get some vinyl"?
