From jouncing to Reggae swings to sipping Jamaican Rum on sandy beaches, what is not to like about this equatorial utopia?
If there were one thing kids and their parents in the East or West, can’t ever seem to agree on, it is choosing a vacation destination and selecting a TV show to watch. Adults like to chillax with a glass of wine and enjoy a sunset, while their ever-sweltering teenagers want to have a reeling adventure with skateboards and jet-skis.
If this sounds all too familiar, and we believe it is to nearly all of you, Jamaica is the ultimate haven for you to spend your next vacation. You might as well start saving up already to fit your family in on a stifling, tropical experience.
From actually visiting Bob Marley’s studio to sightseeing James Bond movie locations to riding pompous stallions on calescent dunes at sea, here are the top five activities your kids can jam to in the Caribbean tropics!
Nose Dive to Sight Chromatic Underwater Life in the Reefs
Excited kids ready for scuba diving
The Jamaican coral ridges are one to watch, and interestingly, the reef itself is exceptionally close to the shore. Your sullen teens will seem not-so-sullen anymore and would hardly be able to contain their excitement. They can even swagger to their friends’ back home and say they had to swim a mile among sharks to watch the sea urchins!
Get Slushy in A Mud Frenzy!
Yaamon Adventures Experience Plantation is famous for its mud infested ride, and it is a lot of fun for the whole family. Speeding around in an open buggy in the dirt does not sound like it would be on the to-do-list of any mother, so it would help if your kids could wear a black swimsuit or a time-worn suit that they could dislodge later. Also, a cold Jamaican rum after the ride is mom-friendly, just saying!
Glide Down the Mystic Mountains
A family trip to the mountains
Cable cars and sleighs are awfully faddish and very much amusing in the torrid Jamaican isles. Clambering up vast slopes is terrifically thrilling, and the descent down the crag is swift and enthralling. We are sure this would be the activity that you and your kids are going to miss when you get back home dearly.
Tease Your Taste Buds at Ms. T’s Kitchen
We are all devotees to trying new cuisine, although some youngsters are an exception. But, don’t you chafe Ms. T’s (a fixture that serves every array of local relish and taste) Jamaican assortments to delight even the most hard-to-please teenager!
Fancy Jamming to Reggae Beats and Meet Bob Marley’s Relatives?
