After close to 2 years of non-stop blogging and over 7 years of non-stop working, I finally exhausted myself enough to to take a break. No, not just some break, but a proper 10-day vacation on the beach! For the first time in seven years I left my laptop at home (huge step to making it a true vacation), got my girls (wife and little Princess) and left for… Jamaica!!
This was our second trip to Jamaica, and first time vacationing in Montego Bay.
I must tell you, our luxurious all inclusive hotel wasn’t exactly what we expected:
Okay-okay, of course, this wasn’t it. 🙂 It’s just a building I took a picture of while on the way to our hotel. Our hotel was quite a bit nicer than that! We stayed at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites (sorry, Hilton, you’ve lost your chance), and enjoyed every moment there. Iberostar must be doing something right. Having 3 of its hotels in the list of the top 10 Montego Bay hotels at Tripadvisor.com (at the time I’m writing this post) is quite impressive. Having checked out all three of these (Beach, Suites and Grand), I believe that we made the best choice, getting the best possible price/quality correlation.
We’ve enjoyed the beach:
Goofed off a little:
Had some amazing cocktails:
Enjoyed some good reading:
…and gourmet eating:
But here’s my favorite picture from this vacation:
It really expresses the joy, and the beauty of Jamaican “no problem” vacations.
Now that I’m back my daily blog posts will resume (starting from this one). It’s good to be back, and good to be well-rested…
By the way, we’re already thinking of where to go next. I’ve heard a lot of good words about Riviera Maya (Mexico), the Dominican Republic, as well as Turks and Caicos resorts. If you have any experience vacationing around the Caribbean (in places other than Jamaica), I would highly appreciate you sharing it in the “Comments” below. Many thanks in advance.
