Jamaica, Mon! Part 2

Saturday, we decided to start by going snorkeling. We went to a reef and swam around looking at the different marine life. It was fun, but we didn't see much. Our friends Shawn and Tim saw an octopus and another couple saw and eel.

That afternoon we hit the swim up pool bar, which we kept hearing such great things about. And it was pretty great! We met a few other couples and spent the day in the pool. 

Saturday night was the "Gala Night" which we thought meant something special, but turns out it just means everyone has to eat at the buffett and there is a tent with a couple vendors selling stuff. We went with our new friends and had a blast that night hanging out with them.

On our last full day, we went to Dunn's River Falls, which is where you climb up waterfalls. It seemed scary at first looking up at the large tall waterfalls but was okay once we got started. It was so much fun and I definitely recommend it to anyone in Ocho Rios. 

That afternoon we did this all day....
And that evening we went again to Bayside the Asian restaurant that sits over the water. This was my favorite restaurant. 
We then hit up the piano bar which wasn't as much fun without our friends (who had left already or were at their private dinner) so we then went and relaxed on our patio just like we did on the last night of our actual honeymoon. It seems to be a tradition now. And we like it!

And then it was over as quickly as it began. We were on the bus for the airport the next morning at 9:15 for a lonnnggg day of traveling. The trip was a blast, and Jamaica was amazing as always.
