Ocho Rios, Jamaica: Travel With Me

Ocho Rios, Jamaica: Travel With Me

My first time to Jamaica.

Although it was my first trip to Jamaica, I can assure you it definitely will not be my last! During my time there I had an opportunity to visit Dunn's River Falls, Blue Hole, and have delicious cuisine from a local Rastafarian restaurant and experience Ocho Rios at night . 

First off, let me tell you a bit about my hotel accommodations, The Jamaica Inn. My room was the Deluxe Varanda Suite. And, as you will see in the video, it was beautiful. Staying at the Jamaica Inn was so relaxing and dreamy. The rooms are very tastefully decorated with a big nod to traditional, but still managed to feel modern, fresh and comfortable.  Their staff was top notch who were more like family than people who help keeping things running smoothly.    Voted one of Jamaica's best resorts for a reason, the Jamaican Inn will be the only stop you will need to make. It really has it all.  As you could see in my vlog, I could do as much or as little as I wanted. However, I often chose to relax because when I'm home I get to do very little of that since Im usually running after my sweet 5 & 3yr old! Ha! 

By the way, prior to my trip I heard, from too many people to count, "be careful," "be safe," and things of that nature. I even spoke to a woman at American Express that shared her shock that I would dare ask about renting a car in "that type of place." 

Let me say this, there was not one moment during my trip that I ever had to question my safety.  In fact, at the resort (Jamaica Inn), I left my patio doors open ALL DAY, even when I left for excursions.  And as I was driven around town (including my almost 2 hour drive from the airport) I never saw any shifty looking characters or shadiness of any kind. I saw tons of tourists walking around town, some even jogging and dining at local restaurants. I don't know how Jamaica has gotten such a rep with so many Americans, but I can say from first hand experience, GO! You will fall in love and write to thank me later!

By the way, if you need a driver, I hired these guys  multiples times and they were awesome ( and happen to be brothers)!  Andrew (876) 426-0304 Paul (876) 850-9352
