Jamaica Destination Expert

Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica
Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica

Jamaica's motto is "One Love" well to me my relation with Jamaica is a little more unique.  If not for this beautiful island I would not exist!  Many many decades ago my Father from Canada and my Mother from United States were both on vacation and met at the famous Dunn's River Falls.   Needless to say they fell in love and she moved to Canada and married my Father and hence years later along came me!


When I became a travel agent my first goal was to become a specialist to the island that has brought so much to my life.  Now I am a specialist with 38 countries and cruise lines.  But Jamaica is always very dear to my heart.  


Jamaica has some of the most beautiful sunsets and a catamaran cruise as the sun goes down is a perfect way to top off the day.  Jamaica has many all inclusive resorts that are family oriented or some adults only.  They also have very exquisite boutique style resorts as well, so many options that this tropical oasis has something to offer for everyone.


Most people on vacation will fly into Montego Bay Airport and then start their getaway in some of the more popular areas such as Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay or the famous beaches in Negril.  All Inclusives are the most popular and this year was no exception with travel opening up again.


Excursions are a must while visiting Jamaica, obviously I recommend Dunn's River Falls, for you James Bond fans you might recognize that is where part of Dr. No was filmed with Sean Connery and that is the only time you will see 007 have a Red Stripe Beer from Jamaica - not a martini.  Ian Fleming wrote many James Bond scripts while on the island and you can even stay at the same location he was at for the right price.  The main port in Ocho Rios is also dubbed "The James Bond Port".


Dolphin Cove is another great adventure where you can have a dolphin encounter and even ride on a dolphin, that was a favorite with my family.  Mystic Mountain will have you riding the Jamaican Bob sled - made famous from the movie.  Also the Beaches and Cliffs in Negril are another top attraction along with the Green Grotto Caves and the YS Falls and Bob Marley's Museum.


Now when in Jamaica you must try the islands most famous jerk chicken, the culinary experiences in Jamaica will satisfy any foodie in your family.  Beef Patty's are another must try food along with their ackee and codfish dishes.  A nice gift to take home are a variety of hot sauces to remember your Jamaican experience.


When you are ready to discover Jamaica give us a call and we will find the perfect Jamaican vacation for you!

A relaxing well needed family trip!
It was a pleasure working with Sheila as my travel agent. She was very helpful with ensuring all safety precautions were reviewed with me before my trip. She also walked me through any excursions I wanted to book before my trip and prepped me every step of the way until I left. Very supportive!

Best Travel Agent!
So happy to have found Sheila! We were a bit skeptical about selecting a travel agent online, but our experience working with Sheila has been exceptional. It is evident that Sheila truly cares about her clients and their travel experience. Sheila takes the time to discover what it is you are looking for from your travel experience, she offers suggestions and recommendations based on her past experience that are extremely valuable, and is virtually available throughout your trip for any questions, concerns or challenges you may face. Her involvement with you does not end once the trip is booked, it only partially ends after your return. She works throughout your trip to ensure you have a wonderful experience. I can definitely recommend Sheila as your travel agent, and we have already begun discussing our next trip. She is very quick to respond to your questions, whether via phone, email or text. Sheila is a hidden gem and we are lucky to have found her.

Worry Free Travel Booking
Sheila has helped us book 2 wonderful vacations so far. We appreciate her knowledge and the speed with which she replies to emails. She helps make our vacation stress free! We had a last minute glitch where one of our companions didn’t notice that her name was spelled wrong. It was almost 9pm the night before our flight. I called Sheila and she immediately made a call and got us new documents…whew! Sheila is so good about pricing trips that we are thinking of taking. I trust her expertise
