We took the boat trip to snorkel and to Jimmy Buffet's place. We arrived and we of course ordered our drinks and they are very good and strong; shopped a little and just sat and admired the view and watched as people used the slide and the water activities there. Very nice trip and always nice to go here.

There is a small cement dock you can swim from to access some water inflatables. There was also a water slide. It was free. There are some cool take home drink cups but they are expensive at around $45 for two.

Anytime in you are in Jamaica you must visit a Margaritaville, right along the water and the main stip. Club had good music and always had a crowd. Special offers on Wednesdays for tourist. Fun place to go.
