Todd and I spent his 40th birthday in Jamaica. We were looking for an easy place to go, and there's a direct flight from Baltimore to Jamaica on AirTran! We left on Friday, May 4 and returned on Wednesday, May 9th. Todd's birthday was on May 7th.
I know that we usually go on these amazing scuba diving vacations and come home with these awesome underwater photos. Or, you see us doing things like hiking or sightseeing. Well, not in Jamaica. For this vacation, we chose to do NOTHING. I mean, NOTHING. We went every day and sat on the beach.
Instead of staying in a resort, we decided to do something a little more low-key. We stayed at The Blue House, which is a B&B in Ocho Rios. After amazing food for breakfast, we headed down each day to Reggae Beach (about a 5 minute drive - folks at the Blue House drove us each day). We spent three days there, and for the first two days we were pretty much the only people on the whole beach.
Day 3, the cruise ship was in port. So, there was an excursion to Reggae Beach and the beach was packed with cruise ship people. We were given a special deal of all you can drink and eat for $45 each. So, we took it. That was Todd's birthday, so we had a really great time partying with the cruise ship folks.
