chickadee024 - did your guests tell you about how much the zipline cost them? who did they do it with? i'm also interested in knowing the cost of renting the scooter (and the length for the rental) and the cost for visiting the Appleton Rum Factory.



Sorry it took so long to post answers! I work for our state health department and things were a little crazy there...


The guests said that their zipline trip ran about $90 per person. They had originally been told that they would be ziplining at a place in Negril, but ended up closer to Montego Bay. Not sure if they would recommend again.... Plus, we had some guests go to Ocho Rios and they said the ziplining looked better there. I think they went with Divine Tours, but I'm not totally sure.


The scooter rental was awesome. I think we paid $110 to rent it for 3 days, and it was well worth the money. Not only did it give us a chance to see the island better, but we were able to make runs to the grocery and bank much easier.


I asked my husband (sugar daddy) how much the Appleton Rum tour was, and he thought it was between $30-$40 - which could be a little off, since all he could think about was Rum Cream. A little expensive, but worth the money in my opinion. Not only is the factory pretty cool, but the trip there was priceless. It was a chance to see the true Jamaican countryside, out of the tourist traps. Also, I think we passed through the Royal Palm Reserve and we stopped on Bamboo Avenue.

Great link. Thanks so much. Boy, there sure are lots of things to do. I'm not so worried about the 1st week seeing as it'll be busy with the wedding and stuff but I fear we may get bored the 2nd week so that's why I'm looking around now.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
