In Photos: A Few Days in Jamaica

I have only been back in the U.S. a few days and I already want to leave again. My trip to Jamaica was nice but not quite satisfying enough for me. Simply put, the trip was too short, a four-day adventure that would have felt better with a two-day extension. Still, I had time to eat well (Jamaican patties are the bomb), ponder the world with a few locals, lounge at resorts, learn about the murderous White Witch at Rose Hall Great House, hit some nightlife in Montego Bay, and take a smooth riding Jamaican catamaran around Negril for for dance, tasty hors o’dourves, and cliff divers that highlighted a night that had its own theme song, In My Cup by Richie Loop (more on In My Cup below).

While the trip might have been short, I still found the time to grab a few memorable shots. Below are some of my favorites including a photo of me along the shores of Negril taken by Corve DaCosta

  3. Hey Corve,
    I am glad I was not the only one.

    Hey JoAnna,
    There is something about a Caribbean paint job and some vibrant pastel colors on so many homes in Jamaica. I am happy to report of have seen this flair for good taste and color throughout the islands I have visited.

  6. Jamacia has always been one of the places that I have to visit. Sadly, it cost an arm and leg for me to make it here. Guess it’s so much cheaper for those in the USA but I am saving for this!

    Pics look lovely and thanks for sharing.

  7. Great pictures. Do you sell your photographs on the side as well? Or maybe post them to Flickr for people to use? Because I know I would love to use a few.

  8. Jamaica looks and sounds like a fun place to be!

  9. Hey Devin; Adding the video added so much to your story. I could just envision you dancing and swaying with the amazing surroundings! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Hey David,

    The flight wasn’t that cheap from the US either. Sadly, I don’t think the air fare is cheap anywhere. However, saving for Jamaica is a good idea. It really is pretty and the water of the Caribbean always idyllic.

    Hi E.T.,
    I don’t use Flickr. It would be just one more thing that I don’t have time for. However, if you see something you like, let me know.

    Hey Josie,
    I am so sorry you had to have such a vision of me to cloud Jamaica. 🙂 Yes, amazing surroundings.

  11. Hi Jamaipanese,
    Don’t worry, Jamaica is still there for future experiences.

    Hi Stunner,

    Hi Amy,
    Jamaica was fun. I could have used another couple of days.

  14. Laughing at the video selection, “My Cup”. Only Jamaicans can make a GREAT song about a party cup.
