Excited About Our Feb Trip!

Just wanted to say we are so excited to be staying at the Riu, Ochos Rios in February for 10 days. So looking forward to trying something new. We have always gone to Aruba, but this year we are going with my son and his wife. We are 55 and 57, young at heart and active. Any must-do's?

Consider checking out The Blue Hole near Ocho Rios. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Orzu8EkJeio In a vacation full of great times The Blue Hole really stood out.

Plan to do lots of relaxing lol! We booked in the deluxe wing. Are there any special requests I should make? I know in Aruba we would ask for mattress toppers as the beds were kind of hard. We picked garden view as truly we don't spend time in our room other than to sleep.

The deluxe wing, historically, was the adults-only section of the RIU; no longer as the entire resort is now for families.

Suggest you try the eatery next door to the deluxe section called Bamboo Blu ( http://www.bambooblujamaica.com/#!/splash ).

Many of the eateries are in the historic family section, so plan on some walking within the resort.

My suggestion would be to get a private driver to get you off the complex for a whole day. See Jamaica. Eat jerk.

Go to Scotchies for some Jerk Chicken and Pork

The Zip lines at Dunns River is fun,as is the bobsled run,but make sure you do that on a day no cruisers are in port

Nice time of year to be there low rainfall numbers
