Island Farewell: So Long, Jamaica, Until We Meet Again!


As I write this final blog post, a bittersweet feeling washes over me. Today marks the end of my incredible eco-tourism adventure in Jamaica, but the memories I’ve made will stay with me forever.

Our last official day kicked off with a tour of Sandals Dunn’s River, and let me tell you, it instantly became my favorite Sandals/Beaches location so far. The architecture was simply stunning, a beautiful blend of Jamaican charm and modern elegance. But what really stole the show was the sheer variety of restaurants. From Asian fusion to Italian specialties, it was a foodie paradise waiting to be explored.

Before indulging in all that culinary goodness, though, we had a truly Jamaican experience. We sipped on refreshing coconut water straight from the source, followed by a taste of the local delicacy – coconut jelly. To top it all off, we enjoyed some Appleton estate rum-infused sugarcane, a sweet and fiery treat that perfectly captured the island’s spirit, thanks to Henisa.

The afternoon brought us to a delightful Tapas lunch heavily influenced by Jamaican cuisine. The vibrant flavors, the lively music, and the overall good vibes were the perfect way to celebrate an unforgettable trip. It was a beautiful fusion of Jamaican culture and international culinary influences, a testament to the island’s diverse culinary scene.

As the sun began to set, we returned to Beaches Resort for our farewell dinner. And let me tell you, it was a true Jamaican foodie send-off! Jerk chicken, curry goat, fried plantains – all the island’s culinary stars were present, a fitting finale to this delicious journey.

While I’m sad to say goodbye to Jamaica, I leave with a heart full of gratitude and a renewed passion for eco-tourism. This trip has been an eye-opening experience, showcasing the importance of sustainable practices and responsible tourism. I’ve learned so much about the hospitality industry, from the meticulous work of housekeepers to the joy of giving back to the community.

However, a tiny part of me can’t help but yearn for one last taste of Jamaica – the legendary Jamaican KFC. Guess that’ll have to wait for my next visit!

Until then, Jamaica, farewell! Thank you for the breathtaking landscapes, the warm hospitality, and the delicious food. You’ve left an indelible mark on my heart, and I know I’ll be back one day to explore more of your magic.

This is where my eco-tourism blog ends, but my journey continues. Stay tuned for future adventures where I’ll share insights and experiences from the world of hospitality and sustainable tourism. Until then, safe travels and happy exploring!
