The weekend before Thanksgiving my sister and I went to Jamaica for the first time with Seagram’s Escapes.  I have been to the Caribbean many times but never to Jamaica, so I was excited to see what the island was all about!

What I didn’t look up ahead of time was how much time it would take me to get there. After about 10 hours on planes… I finally arrived!  I think after living in the South so long I tend to forget that pretty much everywhere is extremely far from California. BUT, there’s no better place to relax than on the beach with warm ocean water and an open bar. Sign me up!

We went out to Dunn’s River Falls on a boat, snorkeled in the ocean, got massages, watched fire dancers (I think my jaw is still on the ground remembering this) and listened to local musicians. One night they had the “Jamaican Whitney Houston” performing and she was incredible.

All while sipping different Seagram’s Escapes cocktails. The resort made a rum punch with Jamaican Me Happy, coconut rum and a sweet & sour mix and it was SO good. The Calypso Colada is also quite delish.  Dangerously good!

Have you been to Jamaica before? Christian went in jr. high for a mission trip that involved sign language, and he still remembers a decent amount of signing.

Thanks so much for reading! XO –

  1. We had a family reunion in Jamaica a few years back. I’ve NEVER had an issue with mosquitoes and they’ve never had any issues with me. But those Jamaican mosquitoes…OH! MY! GOD! They were in full attack mode!!! They were biting left and right, up and down, in and out. I said I would never visit Jamaica again! But of course I will eventually.

    Anyhoo, these photos are really amazing and I’m glad you had a great time. I believe next time I should be your +1!!! 🙂
