Winter is coming, and like many Canadians, thoughts of a Caribbean getaway are dancing through my head! It is time to plan for some serious chillaxin‘ time. Not sure if it will be a return to the Grand Palladium, Montego Bay, Jamaica (where my feet can be seen blissfully swinging in the hammock, as in the photo above) or another island somewhere in the Caribbean. I will have to decide between the all-inclusive or the do-it-yourself holiday. Tough decisions, I know. I am a huge fan of getting out there, exploring what there is to see and do, but I also find at the end of the year I need some serious down time – some bigtime chillaxin’, and the all-inclusive is the way to go. All decisions are easy – Pina Colada or rum punch? Which beach shall I park myself at today? Even the tours are easy – there are plenty of people on hand to help you make the most of your vacation time. I did a fabulous half day at Chukka Adventures riding a horse in the caribbean sea. My time in Montego Bay was nothing short of blissful. I spent the days relaxing at the beach. They had kayaks available for use throughout the day, and the evenings on the deck dancing to the live reggae bands that played every night. While I traveled alone on this one, I met such wonderful people on my trip. Everyone is so friendly in Jamaica.
The Grand Palladium is only 25 minutes from the Montego Bay airport. (When doing such a short holiday, I like to spend the maximum amount of time at the resort and the least amount of time on airport transfers, so this was important to me!!!) I booked through Sell Off Vacations for last minute vacation deals.
