Contest Entry #040 - Jamaica Wins!...Everytime!

This was taken on my first trip to Jamaica from the Riu in Montego Bay.

I had just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic where we stayed at the resort directly beside a "Riu", so we decided to check it out in Jamaica.

It was Amazing! We loved everything it, except it was a little big for my mother; she has a hard time getting around sometimes, but she never let that stop her.

So, the following year, we were deciding where in the Caribbean to take our vacation. We had it narrowed down again to either the Dominican or Jamaica. Both are BEAUTIFUL and reasonably priced, so we had to look at other criteria.

It came down to People, Language, Food and Music. Jamaica wins in all categories for me!

So, now, I'm counting down the days to my 4th trip back to Jamaica and already have tentative plans for the 5th, next summer! I think I'm addicted!
