Traveling From the Montego Bay Airport to Negril? Here’s What You Need to Know
Your Airport Transfer
Skylark Negril Beach Resort is a 75-minute scenic drive from Montego Bay’s Donald Sangster International Airport, so you’ll need to arrange transportation. We highly recommend going with Kenny Tours. This tour company provides shuttles to and from the airport and has been in business for more than 30 years. Their drivers are friendly, knowledgeable about local history, and known for playing great reggae tunes!
Kenny Tours offers luxury cars, minibusses, and 22-seat coasters for your transportation. Each vehicle is $80 per trip for up to four people and $20 per extra person.
Skylark tip: You’ll be prompted during your Skylark guest confirmation email to sign up for airport transportation with Kenny Tours. All you need to do is fill out your information, and we will take care of the rest!

Start your vacation as soon as possible with expedited service through Immigration, Customs, and security.

After you make it through the airport, you’ll be taken to a comfortable VIP lounge to wait for your transportation to arrive. Enjoy amenities such as complimentary WiFi, refreshments, TVs, and more.
The Arrival Meet and Greet is $50 per person, but you have the opportunity to book the Arrival and Departure package for $80 per person.

Stops Along the Way
Are You Thirsty? Hungry?
Pick up water, a patty, or a Red Stripe for the road at Margaritaville just outside the arrivals lobby, or make a pit stop on the way down to Negril at one of the rum bars or jerk chicken stands along the way. Your driver will be full of recommendations! Another great spot to stop at is Hammond’s Bakery in Lucea. Located halfway to Negril, Hammond’s Bakery has excellent patties and coco bread. Local tip: Note that most places will be closed on Sundays, so the airport is the best option to pick up drinks/snacks for the road.
Make a medical marijuana stop in Montego Bay at Island Strains Herb House on the way to Skylark. Meet with a nurse practitioner and get your medical marijuana license (good for six months) and select some quality ganja from a well-curated menu. They even have an outdoor patio with a spectacular view of the water where you can take a smoke break before continuing on the road.
