All-Inclusive Jamaican Vacation at Adults-Only Resort
Included in this vacation package:
- Round-trip airfare
- Five-night stay in a standard room at Club Ambiance Resort
All meals and beverages (including alcohol)
Additional gateways are available at an additional cost.
Club Ambiance Resort has three private beaches along the edge of the Caribbean Sea on Jamaica's North Coast. This secluded playground is set aside for adults only (that is, guests must be 18 or older). Vacationers are allowed to sunbathe au naturel on designated sections of the beach or in the pool area, and the on-site Jacuzzi is open until 1 a.m. The resort also offers complimentary snorkeling gear and kayaks so guests can take in the idyllic Caribbean setting.
As part of the all-inclusive package, you can enjoy unlimited food and drinks at any of the on-site bars and restaurants, which run the gamut from buffet-style dining at Cafe Calypso to a-la-carte fare at Terrace Grill. In addition to weekly barbecues, the Terrace hosts Jamaican-themed nights that feature live music. After dark, there's dancing into the late hours at the disco bar—one of many bars on site, in fact.
After a long night out, you can recharge at the beachside massage hut, where massage therapists perform reflexology and aromatherapy treatments. The resort can also schedule eco-tours, and there's a shuttle available to take you to nearby attractions that include trips to Dunn's River Falls and shopping at Ochos Rios (additional fees may apply).
The brightly adorned standard rooms have private balconies, where you can take in views of the surrounding tropical gardens.
Runaway Bay, Jamaica: Quiet Resort Town near Natural Wonders
Runaway Bay is tucked into the northern coast of Jamaica, between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. The secluded town is one of the island's smallest—Lonely Planet calls it "a one-street village”—and it's noticeably quieter than its tourist-clogged neighbors. But what it lacks in size Runaway Bay makes up in natural attractions. Some of the best underwater sights in the Caribbean can be explored during scuba-diving tours of the coral reef just offshore. And about 4 miles (7 km) west of town, you can explore the limestone vaults and subterranean lakes of the Green Grotto Caves, which were used as a hideout by Spanish die-hards during Jamaica's 18th-century colonization by the English.
A scenic drive brings you to one of the island's most popular attractions—Dunn's River Falls. This natural wonder consists of a series of terraced waterfalls cascading from the mountains to the sea like a gigantic flight of stairs. Thousands of travelers visit the site each year, and it even served as a filming location for the first James Bond movie, Dr. No. Today, tour groups frolic at the bottom of the falls or make the 600-foot climb to the top behind local guides.
