What better way than to spend the Christmas Holiday season by the beach? The tribe has ventured to Jamaica, where the water is clear, the people are super friendly and the food is phenomenal. based in Montego Bay, we’ve made sure to venture out to the surrounding areas of Negril and Ocho Rios, and even have a hiking adventure in Kingston under our belt as well! If you’ve never visited Jamaica, put it on your bucket list for 2018 and GET HERE!
An island country off the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica is full of lush greenery, adventure, white sand beaches and crystal clear water. While you may know that Kingston is the capital, did you know that Jamaica is a commonwealth realm, with Queen Elizabeth II as its monarch and head of state (crazy right)? But, to be more specific on how the country is run on a day-to-day basis, her representative is the Governor-General of Jamaica, Sir Patrick Allen. There’s a large diaspora around the world as well, with most Jamaicans currently residing in Canada, the UK and the US. (so those jamaican patties you’re indulging in from your local NYC bodega are as authentic as they can get besides straight from the island itself).
Now let the FOMO set in with a glimpse of what this work hard, play hard tribe has been indulging in since arriving earlier this month:
Enjoying crystal clear waters in Ocho Rios
Waterfallin’ at Dunns Falls
Party Boats complete with rainbows!
Basically, wherever there was water, that’s where you’d find the tribe. Especially if it included indulging in water tricks! Take a gander at the tribe that’s been milking Jamaica for all it’s worth!
