All inclusive, all adults (Aventura), not swingers, cheaper than Sandals, free room service, booze and jacuzzi in the room. Ocean view is overrated IMHO - we were only there for sleep and sex. If you want to see the ocean, go down to it.[/quote]
Good advice there.
I don’t know how much all these different places cost…but Grand Lido Braco is very very nice if you want to check it out.
More Jamaica advice…from personal experience:
Take lots of US $1s and $5s!!! Jamaican market vendors don’t understand the concept of “change”…like when you give them more than an item costs…huh…what? If all you have is a $20…then suddenly everything costs $20.
All-inclusive is the way to go…you will have a great time without worrying about your wallet.
Dunns River Falls is definitely fun (if you can swing it, go on a Sunday when the cruise ships aren’t there).
In my opinion, the falls is probably as much of the island as you want to see. Everything and everyone you really want to see will be right there with you…or available outside your door at the resort.
“Jamaica time” is…“no problem” until you are ready to head for the airport to catch your flight and then it can be really annoying. And the Jamaican airport employees really don’t care if your airplane leaves Jamaica on time…very…annoying.
Don’t let someone try to tell you that you have to pay the Jamaican departure tax ($27 USD per person) when you leave. You have already paid it when you bought your airline ticket (you may want to double check though).
