Another great trip to Jamaica under my belt. This time Wolf and I brought along two of our greatest friends, Jodi and Dorothy. We all stayed at Hedonism 3 near Ocho Rios Jamaica. The resort needs to work on it's guest services and update the rooms and amenities. But then again, we didn't go to Jamaica to hang out in our rooms. Dorothy and Jodi climbed the waterfalls at Ocho Rios. Wolf and I did this on our last trip and decided to save the money for another excursion the four of us could do together. Jodi and I went snorkeling. It was my first time and I was hooked! It felt like I was swimming in a giant fish tank. It really was amazing, it was a beautiful sunny day so the reef was well lit, the fish were out and about, and the water was the most blue of blues you can get! After that we took a couple of sea kayaks out with Wolf for a little while.

They were the cheesy sit on top kind, not my favorite, but fun...and included at the resort! Another day we did the Chukka Canopy Tour. This was the highlight of my trip. There are a ton of pictures here showing everyone how much fun it was. It was $85 and well worth it. You take a bus ride through small towns like Chester, get some information from your driver about the people living there, to the top of a mountain. From there you get harnessed in and briefed on safety before taking about an 8 minute hike to the first of nine zip lines you take down the mountain! It was a blast. I was lucky enough to go first, to Jodi's dismay, and felt a greater thrill at descending into the trees without anyone before me. Most of the time you couldn't see the end of the zip line from the beginning and the longest one was a total of 660 ft through the canopy.

One even took you above that huge river I have a photo of. After the zip line it was back to the resort for more relaxing, dancing, swimming, eating, drinking...anything. There are even a few home videos to prove our fun and excitement will forever remain a great memory. PS, my friend Dorothy is an expert sleeper, I've never seen anyone sleep so much on vacation before! Everyone should most definitely do a canopy tour if they ever visit Jamaica. There are several around the island and even one being built in Ocho Rios where you can also climb the falls and shop with the locals. Enjoy!
