Traveling over Thanksgiving is becoming a tradition, and that’s absolutely fine with me! This year our warm weather respite was in Montego Bay, Jamaica at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall. Neither of us had been to the Caribbean and after the mid-November snow dump I was looking forward to trading my bulky knits for sandals and swimsuits. Taking a week to unwind and unplug from work was a treat, but certainly a departure for both of us who are used to exploring far and wide on our vacations. Seriously, I think we were both a little stir crazy faced with a leisurely no agenda staycation.
Adults-only and all-inclusive is the way to go! During this offseason we encountered some overcast days and choppy surf that canceled our grotto excursion, but we read plenty, exercised our appetites, and soaked up the balmy weather.
These cabanas were one of my favorite spots to kick back and read. Even for being 7:30am early birds many of them were claimed by the time we made our way to the pools.
We loved our porch and this reading swing! There were a few passing rain showers during our stay so we could retreat to our balcony.
