Never had a desire to visit Jamaica, but I've heard the natural beauty is outstanding. Thanks for sharing, we don't see photos all that often from this country.

Nice pictures. It's too bad that you didn't get a chance to really explore, but that's what happens when you stay at an all-inclusive resort. What did you think of Ocho Rios?

Ocho Rios was nice from what I saw. We actually stayed in Runaway Bay at the resort pictured in the first few pics. I wanted to the "backroads" scenic tour before we left, but we were down for a wedding and time constraints limited our tours to the Dunn's River Falls catamaran. Would love to go back sometime for pure vacation with just the wife and I and explore a bit more of the island.

One benefit of the all-inclusive: I probably ate enough food and drank enough alcohol during the week to have the trip pay for itself for both my wife and I.

That's what I meant by Ocho Rios. I couldn't remember the places down there. I know one place has a nude beach on an island. Did you like Runaway Bay?

The scenery through the north coast was very nice as a whole. There was a nude beach just around the point west of the resort we stayed in. Runaway Bay seemed to be a decent little town. Even though the resort was there, we didn't really get the chance to see much of the town other than on the bus tours. The one thing I really noticed after a bit of research was how much larger Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios especially felt compared to their actual (permanent) populations.
