Reaching the airport early gave us enough time to meet everyone else on the trip. This trip had 20 people, two lecturers, and eighteen students, making it easy to meet everyone and speak to the people we were rooming with.
The flight was extremely short, and when we landed, we got to stay at the Sandals lounge at the airport until our transportation arrived. The drive from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios also went by very quickly.
When we got to Beaches Ocho Rios, we were greeted by most staff and Managers at the property. This was amazing! It allowed us to feel extremely comfortable with everyone.
We had just enough time to change rooms and then headed to a wonderful group dinner at the beach with managers. The layout was beautiful, and the fact that it was by the beach was even better. The theme for that night was Jamaican food, so we got to experience cultural food on the first day. We were also introduced to Jamaican artistic music.
