Sunset at Rick’s Cafe, Negril, Jamaica

Rick’s Cafe, in Negril, is one of the best places to watch the sun set in Jamaica. It’s an event I always look forward to see and I’ve done so on many occasions. Each time, the colors with which the sun paints the clouds as it falls behind the horizon look different, deeper and more intense – purple, orange, blue.

    Gorgeous sunset photos. I think it was Rick’s Cafe in Negril where I sipped a cocktail while my husband dove off a cliff (totally scaring me to death!).

    Wow. That is an impressive sunset. And I’m speaking as somewhat of a connoisseur of sunsets since we have world class ones here in Tucson. No ocean,here, though.
