I am soooooo excited! Jay and I booked our summer vacation / 1st anniversary trip today! We will be spending 8 nights 9 days at RIU Ocho Rios from 6/30/08- 7/7/08. Neither of us have ever been to Jamaica before and can't wait. The resort looks incredible. Jay bought a Jamaica guide book today and we toasted our trip with red stripe. Just had to share the news!!

P.S. If any one knows of any romantic ideas for our anniversary, please share. Oh and if anyone else is going to be there when we are and want to meet for a drink, let us know!!

You will love Jamaica, Everton and I are going there one month later for our anniversary. We are unsure where we are staying yet, I have already stayed in Ochio Rio which I loved. Make sure you visit fern Gully, and wander off resort, it is where we had the most fun great food and entertainment. We are going the week of August 4th, Everton's aunt is getting married in Jamaica on the 9th so we are going to overlap our trip. It is going to go to a real jamaican wedding as it is in Everton's hometown of Mandeville, in the mountains, it will be interesting. It is too bad we are going to miss each other by a month, in would have been fun to have a day or two to have hung out in ja, mon:)

Oh, I am so jealous you guys! So wonderful that you can do something so romantic & fun for your 1st anniversary. I stayed at the Riu in Negril a few years ago & really loved it. Definitely go off site. If you've never been to Jamaica, I would do the Dunn's River Falls trip...it's pretty touristy but very beautiful. Also, make sure you bring back lots of Blue Mountain Coffee & Rum Cream for yourselves & friends!!

We were in Ocho Rios for a day - it was a stop on our cruise. It was my favorite port and I wish we had more time there. We did an ATV tour through some gorgeous land and ended up jumping off a cliff into the ocean. I was terrified but it was so fun.

Fabulous! We honeymooned at ROR and it was the most bonding experience ever! Beautiful resort. If Terrance still works as a sailing instructor tell him we said hi and have him take you to St. Ann's bay where he lives. Ask about the secret healing spring...shhh! It was the best time we had in JA :)

How funny is that Kelly? First we have similar rings now we are both going on vacation to Jamaica! Sorry we are going to miss you. I so can't wait! I have always wanted to go but always heard stories about how dangerous it was to go off the resort. So it scared me off. But the more I have read, I realize this isn't neccesarily the case. We've already strated the research I so want to go to a soundsystem party and dunn river is off course on my list. ROR looks beautiful and has an unusually high rating on trip advisor. We also noticed that it was right there with Dreams Tulum in terms of popularity on BDW. And we couldn't believe how budget friendly it is!! Our TA is going to mention it's our anniversary and see what they can do for us.

 

Thanks everybody for you suggestions! Christa what's rum cream? Sounds yummy.

 

Jamy, we'll be sure to find that sailing instructor! Oh boy oh boy! I am so excited!
