Today I’m serving up my favorite Caribbean cocktail, made with a combination of a shot of sunshine, a shot of turquoise water, a pinch of sand, and a whole lot of love. This is one cocktail that you never have to worry about having too much of. It’s called Jamaica!
Just like the cocktail, the island of Jamaica never disappoints. With a landscape best described as a kaleidoscope of color and people every bit as vibrant, it's no surprise that the "Island of All Right" is one of the most popular islands in the Caribbean. From thrilling adventures to laid back relaxation Jamaica truly has something for everyone.
It won’t take long to realize what your time in Jamaica is going to be like. In fact, you’ll get a pretty good idea as soon as you load into the van taking you from the airport to your resort. With the van bumping and swaying along as your driver cruises up and down the twisty-turny 2-lane roads with Reggae music blasting, you start to understand the Jamaican carefree, no-worries attitude.
Once at your resort things start to slow down a little…the stresses of traveling all day start to fade away, the tension in your neck and shoulders starts to relax, and you even realize that your body has begun to sway to the sounds of the music. You stop and stare, trying to take it all in as you stand looking out at the gorgeous lagoon style pool with the breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean Sea in the background. There’s people all around you, the Reggae band is playing, but the only thing you can hear is Bob Marley singing over and over again in your head, “Don’t worry ‘bout a thing, ‘cause every little thing gonna be alright”. Welcome to Jamaica!
So, you’ve arrived at your resort and are starting to settle in, but what resort in Jamaica is right for you?
Jamaica is home to many of the very best resorts in all the Caribbean. And each of these resorts are unique in design and individualized for the specific traveler they are attracting. From family friendly to couples only, from quiet and relaxed to energetic and active… on the island of Jamaica variety is the spice of life.
With so many choices the decision on where to stay can be rather confusing so to help cut through the confusion here’s my top picks for the best all-inclusive resorts on the island:
*My favorite resort for Destination Weddings & Honeymooners: Couples Swept Away
*My favorite resort for the family: Moon Palace Jamaica Grande
*My favorite resort for a friends’ getaway: Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall
I’ll admit that just about any resort you choose will be so amazing that you’ll be tempted to never leave, but I do highly encourage you to take at least one day to get out and experience Jamaica. A wide variety of tours can be arranged prior to your trip or at your resort’s excursion desk. These are my Top 3 Picks for Jamaica’s must-see attractions:
If I accomplished what I set out to do with this week’s blog, you’re already turning on some Bob Marley, fixing yourself a nice cold drink, and making the decision on which bathing suit to pack and which worries to leave behind… it’s time for a vacation state of mind!
