Excursions?

Recommended Posts

Iâ€m wondering if anyone can help me. I would like to put together an itinerary for everyone going to ROR with us, is there a place I can find out about excursions offered and prices? Also is there a place to get pricing for the spa? Thanks for the help!

I'm not 100% sure about the excursions other than Dunn's Falls, Horseback riding on the beach, parasailing (sp?) and Jet Skis. You can also take a cab into Margaritaville etc. Depends on where you are staying. The above is for staying at ROR.

 

I have a list of Spa prices for ROR if you are interested email me at

ellipse22@hotmail.com and I can send them to you ;-)

Here are a couple of links I found:

 

Dolphins Cove - Swim with the Dolphins

 

Barrett Adventure Tours of Jamaica

 

Bicycle Tour

 

Dunn's Rivers Falls

 

Trip Advisor Info On ATV Tour (I couldn't find an actual link to the ATV Tour)

 

Trip Advisor You may be able to find some info here as well..this is where I found some links.

 

I think the horseback riding on the beach you may have to get info from the hotel as well as the jet skiing.

 

HTH!

And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
