Jamaica Cultural Experience

Aug 24 - 29, 2023

TRIP DETAILS

When people think of the Caribbean, Jamaica is the island that first pops to mind. In a word, it's stunning. It's exciting, and the locals and culture are as kind and pleasant as the sugary shores. When it comes to the Caribbean, a visit to Jamaica is a must. In August 2023, we invite you to join us on a fantastic Caribbean adventure via Negril. This trip is an absolute MUST for you if you’ve ever wanted to really SEE Jamaica! We are talking about exchanging time spent in the resort for a true authentic in depth tour of the people, culture, foods, music and history of the island. 

If you are ready to get away from the resort and see the island for what it really is you’ll truly enjoy this group getaway. Get ready to meet and take a short hike with the Rastafarians while learning about their religion and way of life. After, delight in a homemade ital(vegan) lunch prepared just for YOU. Then it’s Sunday dinner at a local’s favorite, 3 Dives located on the West End (cliff side). Here, not only will you indulge in an authentic Jamaican meal but you’ll watch the sunset and get to chat with locals and tourists alike. And let’s not forget some live reggae as you vibe while listening to the waves and letting your fork feed you a scrumptious jerk dish. Oh, and the One Love Bus Crawl that will take us to up to 7 different locally owned bars and restaurants mainly where locals enjoy gathering will surely be a show stopper! While on the One Love Bus Crawl tour you’ll also have the opportunity to give back to the community by donating school supplies to the children of Negril Village where we’ll also stop. 

There is so much fun planned for our Jamaica Cultural Experience that you are going to love, like our All Blue Poolside Take Over and our All White Farewell Dinner party!! But I’ll admit, this trip isn’t for everyone. In fact, it’s only for the off beaten path and adventurous traveler who is ready to truly experience the island and leave the resort for a few hours a day to truly explore and get to know the Jamaican people and culture.
