TRAVEL TUESDAY - OCHO RIOS, JAMAICA

It was a brief visit to Jamaica for my husband and I - he was attending a conference and I was planning on relaxing by the pool. We stayed at the Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort, in Ocho Rios, a former fishing village turned tourist destination, and about an hour and 45 minutes from the Montego airport.
The resort was all-inclusive, offering a choice of 6 restaurants, including a buffet, bar and grill and several upscale restaurants that required reservations. Mealtimes mostly revolved around social time with the other conference attendees, and although my husband was immersed in seminars for most of the day and networking in the evenings, we did manage to sneak away for one quiet, romantic, lovely dinner.
The weekend was definitely a fun escape from everyday life, and although it was disappointing not to have had the opportunity to taste authentic Jamaican cuisine, it gives us a good excuse to venture back.
