When we got there I was still wondering if it was not just a dream. It was 32 degrees, all the people want to help you and are so friendly. Every time you asked someone something they would just say ‘No Problem mon!’ The first few days we just lay at the swimming pool and tanned until we almost looked Jamaican!
After five days of just relaxing we decided to do something. We booked a tour to Dunn’s river falls and then to the Bob Marley museum. The Dunn’s river falls are major Caribbean tourist attraction and one of the only places in the world where a river drops right into the sea. Tourists are even welcome to climb up the rocks in the waterfall, all the way to the top.
We climbed into a tour bus, and after a very long trip to the Bob Marley Museum we were finally at the house of the legend. We had a tour through his house and after that his uncle played a few songs for us. Our guide was really happy and kept laughing at every little thing he said. On our way back to the bus there were many people that offered us some ghanga (weed), and the little ones would ask us for our change.
The Grand Bahia Principe hotel was just excellent: a buffet and four restaurants we could choose to eat from. The swimming pool was so big that if we wanted to swim from one side to the other, it felt like it would take an hour. We even had a bar in the swimming pool were you could order cocktails like a Pina Colade with rum from 10 o’clock in the morning.
The next morning we were off to swim with dolphins at Dolphin Cove: That really made our holiday. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The dolphins lifted us up two, three meters out of the water, and even let us kiss them. But be warned: the dolphin might just kiss you back! We also swam with sharks, not dangerous ones, only little ones. We ended off with a bit of
The first week of our Jamaican holiday was over like that. Luckily we had still one left. Our hotel was all-inclusive so there were a lot of activities at the hotel. You could go wind surfing, snorkeling, go on a catamaran, you could do anything. We were just a minute walk from the sea and the swimming pool so everything was nearby.
During the day at the swimming pool there was an entertainment group that would play volleyball, water polo, dart games and various other competitions with us. At night you could go to the shopping mall and there would be a show until 11, after that you could go to the disco or to the karaoke bar. There was not a minute that you were bored.
We made so many friends that when we had to go home we all felt very sad to leave them. We exchanged numbers and emails so we could still be in touch with them. I am definitely going back to Jamaica for holiday. If you have to go somewhere before you die its Jamaica!
