We took a family trip to Jamaica during the Winter break few years ago. We stayed at Riu Negril, it was a beautiful property with turquoise waters and white sand beaches. We enjoyed the early morning walks, relaxing while the kids played table tennis or volley ball or built sand castles, and watching the sunsets! After Sunset we would eat dinner at one of the a la carte restaurants that required a reservation. At night, you can dance to the best Jamaican beats at the Pacha club or listen to the live music or entrainment that they put together, which is cheesy but catchy. We did a trip to see Jamaica’s natural wonders of mangroves and to YS Falls. Set amid the lush landscape of St Elizabeth parish, YS Falls stands 120 feet tall and provides a naturally beautiful place to cool off and play in the water. Swim in the cascading pools and swing through the air like Tarzan. Miss Tween was our daredevil who swung like a Tarzan and jumped into the natural pool. We saw crocodiles sunning when we went on the boat tour to the mangroves.
