Jamaican Bar Doubles as a Hot Spot for Thrill-Seekers
Would you like an adrenaline rush with that piña colada? Rick's Café, a bar and eatery in Negril, Jamaica, doubles as a destination for anyone hoping to go cliff jumping on their Jamaican vacation. With cliffs ranging from 10 feet to 35 feet, Rick's cliff jumping can suit everyone from the first-time adventurer to the straight-up adrenaline junkie. And if you're more of a watcher than a doer, you can look out at the cliff jumpers from the bar's main level or get closer to the action on Rick's cliff balconies.

Rick's opened in 1974, when Negril was still a little fishing village that, according to Rick's website, "lacked many modern amenities such as electricity, telephone and hot running water." Despite clearly being a Spring Break hot spot, with drink offerings like the "Jamaican Me Crazy" and the "Rasta-Politan", Rick's maintains much of its original spirit: the head chef has been with the Rick's team for thirty years.
Beyond the cliff jumping, Rick's is also famous for its spectacular views of the Jamaican sunset. From the café's balconies, you can look out to the open water as the sun goes down, making for the perfect Caribbean view. After all, who wouldn't want to watch the sunset to the sweet taste of a "Sex with Rick", a drink described as "Vodka, Peach Schnapps, cranberry juice, OJ, pineapple juice & a splash of cream... We’ll respect you in the morning".
If you want to know what's going on at Rick's literally right now, at this very moment, you can even check out the Rick's Live stream of the action. Probably easier than dropping everything and flying to Negril, Jamaica.
