Situated in the stunning Caribbean Sea, Jamaica is definitely amazing in the spring months. The different regions of Jamaica all have their own distinct vibe, so find the one that suits you. Negril has awesome beaches and a laid-back, lazy feel, while Montego Bay and Kingston are much livelier, bustling cities. For my first visit to Jamaica, I chose Ocho Rios and the adults-only Sandals resort. If you’re looking for a luxurious, tranquil, just “chill-out at a resort” vacation, then Sandals won’t disappoint!
