My Vacation in Jamaica

For my birthday, I wanted to go somewhere I’ve never been before, see things I’ve

never seen. I decided to go to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I flew in, and stayed at a beautiful all

inclusive resort. The beaches and weather were flawless, the staff was astonishing and the

food was unlimited. Plenty of activities to enjoy. It was definitely a good destination for

my birthday.

When I walked up from the cab I was in shock of how detailed this all inclusive

resort was. It was filled with many unique qualities. The entire Lobby was

completely open, no walls and no air conditioning, just the simple breeze coming in from the

water. There were gorgeous rich colored fabrics draped around the doorways. Fluffy

beaded pillows on oversized couches filled this enormous space, large potted plants blooming

with bright flowers. A cute little gift shop with every Jamaica themed dust collector and

beach essential anyone could ever dream of. The polite, attentive staff, dressed in

comfortable white linen button down shirts, khaki pants and brown sandals immediately

scurried around to serve every arriving guest. I couldn't wait to experience this culture filled

vacation.
Every morning, I would wake up in my ocean view room, decorated with granite

countertops, huge stone tile floors covered in sand that was unavoidable and frankly just part

of the experience. The distinct crisp smell of the beach, the warm relaxing sun and the sound

of the water coming in and going out. The sand was so white, it looked pure and soft like silk.,

the water was so clear, like I poured it straight out of a Zephyrhills bottle. When I walked

into the ocean I could see straight down to the bottom. The deep green colored seaweed was

waving around in the water, small blue colored fish frantically trying to get out of the way.

The palm trees so perfectly manicured, I don't see how anyone could go to sit at the pool and
