October was full of great experiences for our family, one of those being a trip to Beaches Negril Resort and Spa for the 3rd annual Social Media on the Sand Conference. It was such an honor to be invited for a 2nd year in a row to this invite only conference. Last year we escaped to the Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort for this conference and it was simply amazing. This year the conference was held at the Beaches Negril Resort in Jamaica! Jamaica treated us well and once again we were blown away by the all-inclusive Beaches Resort. If traveling to the Caribbean is on your to do list; we cannot recommend a better company to stay with.
As we begin the recovery of a busy October I wanted to make sure that I share a few of my favorite pictures of our trip to Negril. Once again, with the help of my amazing parents, Jeremy and I were able to escape to paradise sans kiddos for a truly relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.
If you follow me on Instagram you have probably seen some of our photos but today I am here to show you some of my favorites and these photos will have you planning a trip to Beaches Negril Resort later tonight! And, that is not a bad thing - because you deserve it, start your planning now and enjoy these pictures from our amazing trip!
From the moment we came off the air conditioned bus from the airport we knew we were in for an amazing stay in Negril. Once again, Beaches Resorts showed us how to be treated on a vacation. As we checked in we enjoyed our Jamaica fresh juices and we were taken to our home away from home for the week. The grounds were well kept and breath taking. I love seeing the local vegetation on resort. Living in Colorado we see amazing colors year round but there is something simply amazing.
Our room was perfect for us. A comfy king sized bed with a garden and ocean view from our deck. The towel creations were a bonus every day too! I can tell that Beaches Resorts takes pride in their cleanliness and fresh rooms. We were at the very edge of the resort so we felt a bit secluded from the rest of the busy resort, our night walks back to our room was always really relaxing and a perfect way to end the evening. Night walks allow you to go tree frog hunting; seriously, they are everywhere and they are constantly making sounds like crickets after dark. The sounds of Negril!
Ice Cream every day multiple times a day! Yup, we were like kids in a candy shop. We headed to one of the 9 on resort restaurants, Cafe de Paris, for a scoop of hand churned ice cream for a nice refreshing treat. My favorite was the Strawberry but Jeremy would recommend that EVERYONE try the Rum Raisin flavor. When on vacation you should always enjoy Ice Cream!
The resort makes it possible for you to have fun but also relax. I love the hammocks all around the resort. The views are breath taking no matter where you land!
Blue water, white sand and Cookie Monster and Elmo.
One of my favorite memories from our trip to Turks & Caicos is sitting on the giant rafts out in the ocean with my girl friends, I was so happy when we saw those same rafts in Negril. There is something so relaxing about being in the ocean, under the Jamaican sun and floating with the waves. It is almost better than a nap.
Breakfast on the beach? Yes please. Don't worry, I will be doing a whole update on the food and drinks on our trip. Is there any better way to greet the day than breakfast with your husband next to the beautiful blue water?
Jamaica is known for their sunsets and after our first day we knew why. Every night the sun set we stopped to watch.
Adventures!! We had so many first experiences with sea life this trip. Here is one example - holding a large Starfish. Did you know they are heavy when they are alive? They are full of water - totally makes sense but I had no idea until I held one.
Fruity drinks all around!! Remember all-inclusive means all the food and drinks are included. While my favorite drink from Beaches will always be the Dirty Banana this Jamaican Dream was so delicious and refreshing when sitting in the hot sun.
Sometimes playing in the ocean makes you feel 12 again and I love it! This time with Jeremy was so special and so needed. Remembering to play is important in life. There is no time for seriousness on the beach!
Seeing our favorite Sesame Street friends while out walking around on the resort is always a special treat too! Cookie Monster was my buddy this trip - I think I got 3 pictures with him! So funny!
