Alright, Jamaica it is! We decided that all of the places were were checking out were amazing, so we'd just pick the one with the best deal for the best resort, since that's where we'll be about 50% of the time, and a good beach where we'll be the other 50% of the time, and this Sandals Ocho Rios in Jamaica is by far our best deal.

Hi! I'm not sure if I've commented before, but we have some mutual friends and I think your blog is so fun! Anyway, my hubby served his mission in Jamaica and he says that Ocho Rios is the cleanest and most beautiful part of the island. We want to go to Sandals someday! Have fun.
