I have been in the travel industry, in one way or another, for over 17 years and I know the dos and don’ts of traveling.

Plus I have a love of Jamaica and have made it my most traveled destination.

I would like to share everything I know about the peaceful, beautiful island.

Just a little teaser for you…Jamaica is a warm tropical island with stunning beaches, soulful music, mouth-watering food, and amazing people.

One of my favorite things about staying in Jamaica is the fully staffed villas. This is very unique to Jamaica as there is not another Caribbean island that offers this as a standard. I can’t tell you enough how relaxed and pampered you feel after a vacation in a villa. The hardest part is leaving the new friends you will make because the staff becomes a part of your family!

Another great option is owning your own timeshare in Jamaica. Every year you'll return to your resort suite and will probably see the same neighbors. You can establish lifelong friendships with your Caribbean timeshare resort mates and the staff do become like your extended family, remembering the little things, like your favorite drink, or meal, that makes a big difference in your experience here.

So you see…I hope to help you gain the same appreciation I have for Jamaica and help you come to an understanding how Jamaica has become one of the most visited islands in the Caribbean.
