Welcome to Jamaica, home to the kindest people and lush green mountains. In anticipation of my college graduation, I took a mother-daughter vacation with my mom. We spent 5 glorious nights in Montego Bay at the all inclusive Iberostar Beach Resort. The purpose of this vacation was to completely unwind and be on the beach all day in my H&M bikini, I can confidently say mission accomplished. This hotel had two stunning infinity pools overlooking the secluded, tree-lined beach. The hotel grounds were clean and tropical with good accommodations (although the air conditioning malfunctioned our last two days which caused slight discomfort, but we survived with the fans)
The staff was great, happy to cater to any request. The other guests were a fun bunch and there was always something fun to do with the entertainment staff, whether it was a dance class, karaoke or water aerobics. We booked two excursions for our last full day in Jamaica. In the morning we went kayaking through the mangroves and snorkeled through a beautiful coral reef. At night, we boarded a a boat to a rare luminous lagoon with a special algae that lights up when you swim! This lagoon is the only one in the world that allows swimming (beware of a few jellyfish), and I have crossed it off my bucket list :) Jamaica is a great destination for a relaxing getaway.
