Our first spot as Holidays Lounge looks at top summer cruises is one of the jewels of the Carribean. Jamaica is a truly breathtaking island to visit and should be experienced at least once in your lifetime. From the white sand beaches of Montego Bay to the capital city of Kingston, Jamaica is full of vibrant culture and an incredible history. Be sure to climb Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios, and try the famous Jamaican jerk chicken, an island specialty. Stroll the streets of Spanish Town and Portmore as Bob Marley is played loud from radios and homes. If you are looking for a tropical paradise, make Jamaica your cruise destination for 2017.
We continue our Holidays Lounge look at top summer cruises as we visit another choice in the Carribean, Belize. Situated between Mexico and Guatemala, Belize has a history dating back to the Mayan Empire and has overcome Spanish and British conquest to become an independent nation in 1981. The massive rainforests and rivers that seem to stretch for days are just a few of the reasons to visit the country. Also, visit the Xuanantunich and Lamanai Mayan ruins or take a bike ride through Bacab Eco Park. In addition, you could even try tubing through one of Belize’s many caves or snorkel in Caye Caulker. The possibilities are endless; there’s so much to do that you will want to come back again and again.
