My husband and I are returning next April. We were there for 8 days last time we are planning on 12 days this time!

We stayed in Negril the first time and will be returning there again. I keep remembering the warm crystal clear aqua waters the white sand.

The people were welcoming easy to talk to. I tell everyone about Jamaica. Climbing the lighthouse seeing the sights the sounds. The children getting out of school. Learning about the culture.

When we returned I could even smell Jamaica when I unpacked my bag. I knew that we would be returning.

We are planning on seeing more of the country now that we have 12 days. We like to do things but would like to do a few things off the beaten path.

So if anyone has any ideas we like nature and history.


Wellesley's Note

Hi Linda,

Welcome back!! Sure, there are tons of stuff, and yes, off the beaten track stuff.

Have you ever checked out Barrett Adventures? I know the owner, Carolyn, personally and she is wonderful.

She is actually American born, but she married a Jamaican and has been living here for many many years. Her visitors always gives her 5 star!

Believe me when I say she knows the ins and outs of Jamaica more than I!!

Here is her site: Tell her I suggested her to you :-)

Go ahead, make it 12 days of pure fun my friend!

I first went there for a month over Easter 2013 and fell in love with everything Jamaican.Returned from the UK after 3 weeks to visit a young Ja girl in Portmore,stayed 2 1/2 months.Returned again in November 2013 for 7 months.

Got married,moved to St Mary.Now retiring there Nov 2014.

I've been to many countries,but JA has everything,from beautiful people,Beaches,Waterfalls,Mountains,food and weather.

Still got a lot of exploring to do,but love Ocho Rios.

It has everything you could want for a fantastic holiday,enjoy your stay.

Jamaica the sunshine isle
by: Aine

I came to Jamaica last year for one month and I stayed in Ocho Rios.

I visited Seville Great House, Rose Hall, Bob Marley Museum, Nine Mile, Rick's Cafe,Wassi Art, Dunn's River, Devon House and a great little museum in Kingston which has all the early artifacts that the Tainos and Maroons used.

The girl who worked there Makeba was very knowledgeable about the history of Jamaica but they need more visitors there to make it financially viable.

Scotchies was great for Jerk chicken etc. and I'm returning in one week's time for four weeks again, one week in Montego Bay and back to Ochi for three weeks!

The people are fantastic, the island is wicked with good food and rum.
