3 Reasons to visit Jamaica

3 Reasons to visit Jamaica (1)

Anywhere in the Caribbean is always a winning destination to escape the Winters of the UK, and to engage in some serious sun bathing. So when my brother asked if I wanted to come to Jamaica with his birthday twin (Iyisha) and two of her friends, I jumped at the opportunity.

We embarked on a 10 day trip to the island of our ancestors, and had the best of times! Although it’s one of the largest islands in the Caribbean, you can still get around to most parts if you can arrange transport. We flew in and out of Montego Bay airport. For more pics, follow me on instagram.

Here are 3 of my top places to visit in Jamaica.

1. Montego Bay

We stayed at the Sunset Beach Resort aWaterpark  for a couple of nights. It was wonderful having a private beach, and enjoying the beach, and amazing food. All-inclusive is the way to go! The hotel was clean, hotel staff we’re very friendly and we had a fun start to our holiday. http://www.sunsetresortsjamaica.com/sunset-beach-resort-montego-bay/

2. Ocho Rios

The hotel concierge arranged a taxi for us to Ocho Rios, to visit Iyisha’s grandad, this journey took about 2 hours. We stayed at his house and had a very different Jamaican experience. By day we visited the James Bond beach, Blue Hole, and by night we went to Amnesia, and Karaoke at Oceans 11. I’m not much of a party animal, so we stayed in a few nights too.

We also got to attend church on Sunday morning, and went straight to the beach afterwards! LOL!

Negril. My favourite place in Jamaica

 

Grandad arranged a taxi to take us to Negril, which took about 3 hours. On the way, we stopped at Scotchies for amazing jerk chicken and festivals!

When we finally arrived in Negril, I was not disappointed. Negril was everything I could have hoped for, a real paradise. This was my favourite part of Jamaica; endless beaches, lovely people and glorious sunshine.
