My Jamaica Trip: Day 3

Day 3 June 9th 2013- Runaway Bay Ocho Rios Dunn’s River The shuttle picked us me and Tiffany up to go to Mystic Mountain Ocho Rios. The Sky Explorer that took us to the top of the mountain provided a beautiful view over the lush green scenery and the Caribbean.

We became friends with the staff, and got an extra bobsled ride! We had an hour and a half before our shuttle ride back to the hotel, so we headed down to Dunn’s River for a swim. Normally you have to pay to access Dunn’s River falls, but we entered through an area that we saw while on the Sky Explorer.

Back at the resort, Tiff went to the pool to play volleyball, and I walked over to the beach where I enjoyed the lukewarm Caribbean, an ice-cold Red Stripe, and the warm late-afternoon Jamaican sun. The bartender at the beach bar asked me what we were up to that day. “Well, we heard that Priory Beach is the place to be on Sunday nights.. We were thinking about going there.” “Yeah.. It’s a lot of fun. I’m going there too tonight.” “Really?” “Ya mon.. You guys need a ride?” “Yes!” Priory Beach was really nice- great reggae, no tourists, perfect weather and water. Then, something happened to the sound system, so we had to leave and ended up at a nearby club.
