Famous for being battered during the hurricane of 2004, my friend was elated when I told her that we visited Rick's Cafe and that it looked like it had forgotten about the damage the hurricane caused. Rick's is spacious and sits on the cliff, just like almost everything else in the West End of Negril. Jamaican locals climb the trees and dive off the cliffs to show off to the tourists and earn some change. The sunset views are superb; match that with the live reggae music, and you have a completely chill Jamaican night. I went to the bar to order a drink and requested the bartender's specialty drink. Was I surprised when he offered me a fruit punch he surely just named right there and then? My Sex with Rick cocktail was strong enough to clear my sinuses. Of course, the true Jamaican way is to chase down any liquor with Red Stripe, and that's exactly what we did. In no time at all, we were dancing on the sand to Bob Marley's Red, Red Wine.
