JAMAICAN VISITOR STORY: 3rd Visit to Jamaica & it was Fantastic Again


Late Feb brought us another visit (3rd time in 5yrs) to this wonderful island. It was our second time to Ocho Rios now & by far for us the greatest place in the world to hang out & watch the people of the world go by.

It was our first time getting away from the "All Inclusive Resort" lifestyle & was the best thing we've ever done.

(Don't get me wrong the resorts we've stayed at are fabulous, but honestly there is no Jamaican culture, food or history to found in any of them!)

We rented a room on Ocho Rios Bay Beach & had the greatest time there!
Nothing better than the experience of been in the town & steps away from the ocean at the same time. The local people are spectacular & so much fun.

Yes they hassle to make a dollar but are not rude, demanding nor threatening in any way. They are just not as well off as us Westerners who come to visit!

When you are there visit the locals markets / tents, support them & most of all have fun with them. Ask questions about their life on the island. Many of them are more than happy to talk to everyone.

We experienced your country's general election (you sure do like your horns!! haha) which was another titbit of knowledge we can add to our visit to the island. Walk around & mingle with the locals, you will love the experience.

Experience the culture of these truly beautiful people & better understand what lies within this beautiful country.

Next year brings a 3 week visit ! This time which we cannot wait for... don't forget your history!

My visit to paradise
by: Francine

In March of this year I visited Savana-La-mar. This was my second visit to Jamaica and I wanted to see the true Jamaica and not stay in a resort area.

I was fortunate to meet someone when I stayed at Beaches in July of 2015. Jamaica is a beautiful paradise with the most kindest people I ever met.

I spent a beautiful 7 days seeing the country and getting the best home cooked meals. The mangoes straight from the tree was the sweetest fruit.

I plan to visit again soon and hope to stay for aleast a month. This will be my vacation destination because you will always travel where you feel most welcome.

I can understand why it is easy to fall in love with this island.
