There were 9 dining options and although we tried….we couldn’t make it to them all. *weeps*. My favorite was Kimonos, a Hibachi style restaurant.  But honestly, we ate at the little Barbecue shop by the pool a lot. Their jerk chicken was good and so were the beef patties and coco bread!

4. You Can take Random Selfies Together…or try…



Because when you are vacation in paradise, that’s what you do…true?

5. You can walk along the beach at sunset and talk and talk and take even more great photos….

Sunset was a great time for us to just walk around, explore the property and talk. Something that we don’t get to do a lot of at home.


6. Alone time…with each other


For the last 7 years, we have rarely had a moment alone with each other other than after the child goes to bed. But Beaches Negril gave us plenty of opportunities to just BE. On the beach, by the pool, in the room, just walking around the property.

7. Do whatever YOU like to do



We love each other dearly, but thankfully, there was so much to do at Beaches Negril that we didn’t have to spend every single moment of  it together. One day, C Dub took a sailing class while I read a book on the beach. One day, I took an underwater photography class while he played pool. We could indulge in our own interests and not have to worry that the other person was bored.


We loved our time at Beaches Negril! We are looking forward to going back, this time WITH our son.  There is so much there for him to do and even though we loved our time alone together, we kept catching ourselves saying: Pookah would love that.

So the next time we go, look for my list of 7 things for Kids to do without their parents at Beaches Negril. LOL. Cause it’s coming!

We love traveling anywhere with a rich culture and history behind it. Puerto Rico definitely accomplished this for us both.

Ideally, you could explore the entire island if you stayed for a week or so. Brandon and I both love a trip that allows you to see as much as possible and I feel like Puerto Rico definitely offers that for any traveler.
