Appleton Estate Rum Experience, St. Elizabeth

written by owen, published 2019-Dec-03, comment

Its almost a one hour tour where you learn about rum distillation and donkeys. It is extra worth it if you like Appleton rum or rum in general. The tour is well designed and moves at a steady pace. Parking is adequate. Bring your id if you look young because alcohol. Tour cost 20 USD or 2500JMD roughly. Locals get a reduced rate. 8 out 10 because how much rum can one actually drink?

Bull Bay Beach, St. Thomas

written by owen, published 2019-Nov-17, comment

The coarse black sand and high shore makes the walking barefooted almost unbearable on a sunny morning. But the black sand has a added benefit in that it absorbs heat and so the sea water is warm even as winter approaches. Its a good beach, hard to run on because of the large pebbles but it seems like a good mile long, unencumbered by man made structures. Worth the visit. Easy to get to before the Cane River signs. There is parking but no lifeguards.

Towards Kingston, Palisados.  Limestone mining scares the mountain side.  
It is almost bueatiful from a distance.  Almost.

Kaz Kreol Beach Lodge

written by owen, published 2019-Oct-09, comment

You save some money if you do not stay at an all inclusive resort. Because who is going to eat all that extra food? But be prepared to bear the wrath of your significant other. Your room will likely not be ready on time and towels are usually in short supply. The breakfast that is included with the cost of the room is great. They need to change out the old magazines in the rooms and dust a bit more. I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Average. You will have to buy dinner/lunch on the property but prices are reasonable and the food is good.
visit and book directly on : kazkreolresort.com/

Finding the place is a bit tricky if you use maps because it will try to send you down a road which is blocked by a security guard. Turn at the stop light, go around the bend and under the bridge, pass the bunch of dudes washing cars by the river. You will see a building that looks like a school.
