If you have in mind to vacation in the Caribbean, Jamaica is really one of my favorite destination. Ok, I’ve always loved reggae and dub music (check this! and this one too!). But aside from the music, there’s a really warm culture there if you choose well your place and stay away from the large tourist-trap resorts.
We spent a week at Jake’s when Marcelo was almost a year old. It’s quite a drive from Montego airport which is the negative (about 2h30) but then you are on the south west coast, well remote from the over developped beaches around Montego Bay.
