Avoid Winter – Run to the Sun

Let’s look at some fab sun getaways!

How about Jamaica?  Here’s an interview with Philip Rose of the Jamaican Tourism Board about why you should get away to Jamaica this winter.

Here are a couple of my favourite spots that I visited the last 6 months or so in Jamaica and in Mexico.  I’ve just uploaded my facebook “live” videos to youtube, to make them easier to view

Let me know if I can help you get away.

1. Jamaica Inn – where Marilyn Monroe honeymooned, and Winston Churchill regularly holidayed in their White Suite. I was lucky enough to stay in the White Suite/ Room. And it is spectacular space for 2 people looking for a fabulous getaway. But – they also have 1 and 2 bedroom cottages if you’re looking to bring some family members with you.

2. Half Moon Jamaica – here’s a little view of their lap pool, as well as a tour of a 6-bedroom villa I did of Half Moon in Jamaica. You can have your own maid, cook, and butler!  I’ve sent many a multi-generational family for getaways here.  It offers the best of a large resort, and villa living – all in one. You can get a meal plan if you choose too. Lots of activities – and maybe you might choose to go swimming with your horse!

3. Secrets Wild Orchid – a luxury all inclusive in Jamaica for couples only. This is a terrific all-inclusive property.
