As I mentioned to you in my previous blog post, I want to share with you what to expect when in Jamaica. I know that summer is coming-up and that many of you are planning your ultimate summer getaway. So, if the Caribbean, and Jamaica are on your mind, here is what to expect...
|Before the storm on the white sand beaches in Negril|
Firstly, decide on the type of vacation you want, exploration, relaxation or both? Definitely, Negril, Jamaica is for relaxation on the beach and your occasional fun and refreshing water aerobics and other traditional water sports. There are options to explore its tropical rain forests and, for instance, see the Mayfield waterfalls, but do not expect to run into some world major monumental land marks (e.g., the Mayan Pyramids in Chetzenitza) or natural wonders.
Secondly, make sure to bring mosquito repellant as the mosquitos are bountiful in the evenings away from the breezy beach. Also, watch out for sun flies, which are worse than mosquitos because you do not see them with your naked eye and leave terrible bite marks.
Lastly, bring a smile and your bathing suits as Jamaica is a perfect place to relax and unwind while dipping into its emerald blue waters. More so, the white sand beaches are full of laid back natives and friendly tourists so be ready to share some laughs and have a good time. After all, a trip to Negril is about ultimate relaxation and perhaps your hardest job will be working on that perfectly bronze tan. Until next time, I am sending my love from Jamaica!
