Jamaica? I don’t know if I would want to vacation there… I’ve heard some negative things 🙁
A bad reputation is hard to live down.
Back in the PI (Pre-Internet) days we didn’t have much information beyond stories and recommendations from friends. I remember back in 1994 when my wife Amy and I were planing our very first trip away from our two young girls. We were thinking Cancun when our travel agent suggested we try the Sandals in Ocho Rios Jamaica.
“Jamaica? I don’t think so, I’d feel better going to Mexico.”
“You’ll like it and you can’t beat the price… it’s All Inclusive”, was the agent’s reply.
She was right and now, after staying in multiple locations around the Caribbean, Jamaica is always our first choice – with our without our kids.
Now we have the Internet and dozens of travel review sites – so we aren’t limited to a few friends. You can now find hundreds of reviews and do your own research before deciding on which location to book your fitness vacation.
Amy and I are scheduled to teach at Couples Tower Isle later this month. We’ve been there three other times and would highly recommend it to anyone. I have a short post about an Instructor who taught Spinning classes on her working fitness vacation, based on our suggestion that you can read or check out these 69 reviews from paying customers to the resort.
