With the weather heating up, a week long retreat to a sunny locale is just what the doctor ordered! I recently took a fun vacation with my family to visit our favorite tropical destination, Jamaica. It was a great way to start off the spring to summer transition so I thought I’d share it with you all!
My sister and I took our kids on a spring break vacation to Jamaica where we stayed in an ocean front villa in the beach town of Negril; I highly recommend this area for a family friendly visit as it offers the perfect mix of laid back attitude and active lifestyle.
Negril is a great place for athletes and adventure seekers. We spent many of our days rising early for breakfast and indulging in a variety of activities: parasailing, snorkeling, tubing, and sailing. I also enjoyed a few rounds of tennis with my daughter and sister.
In the evenings, my sister and I took time for massages on our bedroom patio (vacation tip: take full advantage of all relaxing activities offered!)
One of the best parts about Jamaica is the food! We often had local fare on our beachside patio, which included lobster (my favorite) and jerk chicken. We also ventured out into the cliffs of Negril to visit two incredible restaurants: Rick’s Café and Rock House. Both places are great to explore; we had a particularly fun time at Rick’s where we sipped drinks in the cabana while taking in the beautiful sunset and watching cliff divers.
The versatility of my Dina Mackney jewels certainly came in handy on this trip as I was able to wear many of the same pieces both while lounging on the beach and for special dinners at night.
I absolutely loved Jamaica and can’t wait to go back; here’s to planning another trip soon!
