For the second part of my Puerto Rico trip, I stayed at a place in Hato Rey with a beautiful rooftop. While I loved the beaches, having a private pool was something I couldn’t pass up!
At check in, I was greeted by the lovely smile of Martha who helped me pick my room. (Amber helped me later. Everyone was so nice.) I explained that my flight had been cancelled and that I might be sharing the room with 1 or 2 other people. After offering my enough Fiji water for all of us, Martha informed me that the room with two beds wouldn’t have the view I was looking for; the room overlooking the park would only have 1 bed. Because I was in a total mood & have some fancy friends, I chose the room with the view and couldn’t have been happier. Martha even called up to make sure I was happy with the room. What I loved about the service in this place is that they were always available if I needed them, but never overbearing.
The parasails were taunting me every time I looked our onto the water. As it lingered on my list of goals, I kept watching people fly by, filling me with enough fomo to check parasailing off my list.
About a 30 minute ride from Iberostar in Montego Bay, we arrived at a clearing, a shot walk from the rivers edge. We were given life jackets & rum punch ($3 each), then lead to the river. The entire ride was more comfortable than I anticipated.
No lies, the infinity pool sold me. Iberostar’s all inclusive resort in Jamaica had everything I could ask for. From a shuttle for hotel pick up, to welcoming us with flower petals and towels folded in the shape of a kissing ducks, I truly enjoyed everything the resort had to offer.
While it may appear quiet and peaceful at first glance, Chicago is land of the unexpected. My homegirls decided to book a trip to the Chi during Complex weekend & even though we didn’t attend the Complex events, our trip ended up throwing us for multiple loops.
Need a quick getaway? That’s what Florida is for! Miami is a great, quick get-away for couples, too. I’ve been to South Beach before but I was trying to do it grown this time. This relaxing, low-key vacation was perfectly lit. If you’re looking to plan a getaway, but want to be realistic about the details, I’ve broken them down here for you as best as I can!
