The last of my Jamaica trip posts, it was sad to say goodbye but I was also happy to go home to see my family and friends. On the last day I had the best time, for the very first time I swam with the dolphins- way to end my trip! Half Moon is the only resort in the Caribbean that has dolphins on-site, the other spot to swim with dolphins is at the Dolphin Cove which is also owned by Half Moon. I’ve always loved dolphins and learned a lot about them from watching Animal Planet but never had the chance to have a close encounter. This was definitely an unforgettable experience, at the Dolphin Lagoon I had a chance to learn more about these beautiful mammals, activities include kissing, petting, touching, dancing, hand(fin) shake, singing, display of anatomy and echo-location. The program was about 35 minutes, but I’ll remember this for life. I look forward to swimming with the dolphins again on my next Caribbean trip! Has anyone tried this?
For those that are planning a trip to Jamaica, here’s my top ten (in no specific order). Some of them I’ve tried and some are ones that I’ll be trying next time I go there:
- Swim with the Dolphins (activity)
- Bridget’s Sandals (shopping)
- Fern Tree Spa @ Half Moon (spas are so good in Jamaica, it’s a must!)
- The Caves (even just visiting is worth it)
- Rick’s Cafe (sunset dinner)
- Scotchie’s (food)
- Beach Ride with Horses (activity)
- Juici Patties (food)
- Pelican Bar (grab a drink in the middle of sea) – I def need to go there next time!
- 7 Mile Beach @ Kuyaba, Negril (7 mile beach, need I say more?) – A must for my next trip!
