Couples in Jamaica have always been one of my favorite all inclusive resorts for active couples (okay let’s be truthful…for us non-active couples too). What is cool is that each hotel offers special excursions – included in the price. Here are the list of things for active couples to do while at a Couples resort.
#1: Water sports! Scuba is included for free! (not a normal thing!). Including the resort certification! Plus there is snorkeling and kayaks and stand up paddle boards and even glass bottom boats! Plenty of choices to keep you in the turquoise waters at each resort!
#2 Tennis and other land sports! Take a tennis lesson! Take a squash lesson! Play pickle ball! Golf for free! Add to that the gym fully equipped with top of the line equipment and classes galore!!
#3 Catamaran Cruise. 4 times a week a catamaran goes out with guests complimentary. Enjoy some punch! (rum of course). Go swimming and snorkeling off the hull! See the sites! It’s a really fun and romantic adventure!
#4 Off site excursions. Depending on your hotel you can go to either Margaritaville or Dunn’s River Falls! – for free! Then there are the other tours such as zip lines! horseback riding! atv safari and more!
#5 Dress up for dinner! Dinner is a event. The food at Couples is delicious! But instead of making it just another meal – make it an event! Dress up for dinner and be in the moment with the one you love!
#6 Have a Bob Marley Shot – a special green, yellow and red shot in honor of the Jamaican flag and the legendary Bob Marley. Have a shot and feel like a true Jamaican
#7 Swim up to the bar for a drink or two. Okay, like number six may not be a true calorie burning activity but still something to do while on vacation. I resisted the cliche of a swim up bar for a long time. Glad I finally got over that! Now I love a swim up bar! Very nice after a morning filled with activities. You are on vacation after all!
#8 Sun bathe without clothes. Or maybe at least without a top! Want no tan lines!? At Couples Tower Isles there is a special island for getting a tan without lines!
#9 Get to know the staff! The staff at Couples is incredible. Most are long time employees who love their jobs and are extremely proud of their country. Ask them about local hidden gems to try! Jerk chicken at a local jerk shack is not to be missed! Along with a red strip beer and you will be in heaven!!
#10 Breakfast in bed. Hey! some activities may take place in the privacy of your room. After a long night – enjoy breakfast in bed!
