    Hello Jamaica Brides!

     

    What are you all planning as for your excursions?  I don't think I want to pay for anybody but I want to have ideas ready for when people are in the resort.

      I haven't decided on any of the excursions yet either! There are so many to pick from. I was watching the Travel Channel and they went on the Blue Mountain coffee tour and it looked really cool(if you like coffee). They also did the Falls as well, but i went to the Falls a few years ago and wasn't very impressed. It's so crowded that you almost lose the natural beauty.

      good luck!

        I was wondering this as well, one of my bridesmaids will have her birthday down there and has always been in love with dolphins, so I was considering the dolphin swim and taking her as her present, has anyone done this? I haven't talked to one person who said they liked going to the falls (unless they went super early for TTD when no one was there), I'm up for anything though

          I have to be honest, after seeing the movie The Cove it made me rethink the idea of swimming with the dolphins(I have done it before as a child). They are wild animals and meant to live freely in the ocean. Another idea might be to take her on a sunset cruise, where in Jamaica you are likely to enjoy dolphins in their beautiful, natural environment. whatever you choose to do, i am sure your BM will be thankful that you thought of something special for her.

            I hadnt given this much thought.  The FI is not into the falls but I figure if we go all the way there, we have to see them.  As fara s my guests, I was thinking they would likely work with the resort for options.

              I am going to the horse back riding in the ocean and the sunset cruise. A previous bride told me these were two must do. I have always dreamed of horseback riding in the ocean. 127 days!!!

                  I agree with J , with the cost of the reception dinner, OOT bags etc...I would like to SUGGEST several options for guests without necessarily paying for them. I will be doing, horseback riding, ziplining, Mystic Mountain (the amusement park), ATV Safari, etc.

                   

                  Here are a few suggestions from my TA who is fantastic,BTW. They were further confirmed by my girlfriend, a Jamaican native:-)

                   

                  1. A nice after-wedding event would be a therapeutic, scenic and romantic river raft ride on the Martha Brae, approx $89.00 per person.


                  2. Another nice option is Island Vibes Dunn's River Cruise at $80.00 per person. This includes admission to climb Dunns River Falls.

                   

                  3. Bob Marley 9-Mile Tour

                    I am also a Jamaican native, but sometime I worry about my guest especially since there are going to be so many of them who have never been there.  I think I will just make suggestions and after the wedding who ever wants to go we can go.  But I am not going to take on the expense of paying for this either.

                      Yes, I am including a map of the city and an extensive list of suggestions for guests. I figure some will like this or that but at least they know what is available to them. Especially if you have guests of varying age groups...
