Planning a Jamaica wedding or Jamaica Honeymoon? Why not consider Negril as your next wedding location or honeymoon location? Negril is one of my most favourite places in Jamaica. I still remember my days there during summer break from college. Its laid back charm, almost endless white sands beach, horseback riding are just some of the reasons I love this place. Negril is one of Jamaica’s most spectacular beach wedding locations and motivating this is the famous Negril lighthouse.

The Negril Lighthouse Jamaica was built in 1894 by the French Company Bubbler & Bernard, on a tank 14 feet deep, which is kept filled with water. This is to keep the Tower balanced and secured in the event of an earthquake. The Tower which is built inland, is cylindrical and has an elaborate light surrounded by a metal and glass protector on top of which is a wind-wane.

Negril Lighthouse Jamaica is located at south dab rigs under Negril Point which is at the extreme western end of the island of Jamaica. It’s about 3 miles south of the center of Negril proper, just a short drive along Westend Road. It is open 9 am to sunset daily. This concrete beacon which is painted white, stands 66 feet above ground level and the light is elevated 100 feet above sea level. The Lighthouse has an automatic white light which flashes every two seconds. The site is a popular wedding photography attraction of the Negril region and thought to be the the highest structure in Negril.Bubblers - Mini Bubbler Pipes Collection | MJ Arsenal

Talk to the Superintendent who you may persuade to take you for a tour inside. There are 103 stairs that will take you to the top for a bird’s eye view. Standing tall at 100 feet. The lighthouse offers a sweeping view of the sea and countryside as they blend together, the Negril light house lawn is the perfect place for viewing the sun setting behind the ocean. Probably why it is Negril’s most common wedding videography and photography spot. Many Negril wedding memories have been recorded on the lawn of the Negril Point lighthouse.

The Negril lighthouse Jamaica is a operating, historical building maintained by the Port Authority of Jamaica, an agency of the Ministry of Transport and Works. Because the lighthouse is a listed building, there are regulations laid down that have to be followed. Nevertheless these rules are not rigid enough to mar any wedding in Negril Jamaica.

The Frontosa Cichlid originates from Lake Tanganika in East Africa. This pet is easily identified by it’s cranial hump, which begins to develop as adults or when they reach a length of approximately 4 inches. These fish are usually found at depths of 100 feet or deeper in the wild. Even though the males will grow from 14 – 16 inches and the females will grow from 9 – 12 inches as adults, in Lake Tanganika they will sometimes fall prey to larger fish, but in an aquarium, anything under 3 inches in length will often times become a snack for these generally mild predators.

Frontosas are meat eaters in the wild, mostly consuming snails and and other mollusks. In an aquarium, however, their diet must be protein rich in the form of krill, adult brine shrimp, most any type of worm, and silver sides.

The Frontosa is a mouth brooder, meaning the female will carry fertilized eggs in her mouth for approximately 21 days, at which time the fry are released into the water to fend for themselves. The female will allow them back into her mouth a couple of times if she fears harm to the young ones, but will only allow them to seek cover once or twice. The female will eat hardly anything during this time period, and placing her into a separate tank will help keep her stress levels down.

The Frontosa Cichlid makes a very nice pet. It is basically non aggressive, however, it will defend an established territory. 8 – 12 pets in at least a 200 gallon aquarium is recommended, with a sandy bottom and lots of caves. They will generally leave plants alone too. These guys will often live up to 25 years, making them a beautiful, long term pet!

Keeping them to the age of 25 requires stable temperatures between 72 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit, lots of oxygen – keep bubblers going day and night, avoid overfeeding and overstocking, 10 – 20% water changes weekly, and a constant checking of nitrate levels. Keep them happy and you’ll have a nice group of pets for a long time.
