Margot & TJ

Jamaica proved to be the perfect locale. Favorite activities included snorkeling, diving trips, and an excursion to Dunn's River Falls.

"The honeymoon was perfect. We normally take trips that are more adventurous and enjoy the planning aspect of choosing a destination and deciding what to do. For our honeymoon, however, we wanted to rest and relax after such an intense and emotional time. We didn't want to have to figure out how we were going to get from A to B to C. We wanted someone to hand us a cold frosty beverage, and say 'just hang out here and we'll make sure you get where you need to go.'

If you want to just relax with Bob Marley on the airwaves, a cold rum drink in your hand, the sparkling blue water dancing between your toes, and your new partner in life smiling at you, Jamaica is the perfect destination."

Aside from a few jellyfish stings, their trip turned out to be spectacular. Top moments included cliff jumping, a private island adventure, and a swimming with the dolphins experience.

"Our days in Jamaica were worth every penny spent, as the memories we created were truly priceless. There was no better place for the two of us DIYers to relax and spend the first days of our married life together.

After we finished zipping up the last suitcase, we made the decision to go down to the lobby and booked our trip back for our anniversary. We couldn't wait to do it all over again."

A few favorite moments included a catamaran cruise, a tour of the Appleton Estate and rum factory, and enjoying their hotel's swim-up pool bar.

"We have always loved the free spirit of the Jamaican culture. Our tropical dream was all about beautiful white-sand beaches and clear blue water with the sounds of reggae steel drums ringing in our ears."
