Our group consisted of people who have done it all in Jamaica over the last 20 years or more and some people who were in Jamaica for their first time.Trying to plan an excursion to appeal everyone and get everyone to agree is close to impossible, especially when you mention "Ricks Cafe", or "Dunn's River Falls" or "The Catamaran Booze Cruise" or any of the other common tours offered by the hotels etc etc.....The usual response from most people is" been there, done that" "I'll Pass".....
No one in our group had been to Zimbali and only a couple of us heard about it....we were apprehensive to say the least.....our group ranged from older to younger....single to couples...professionals to unemployed!!!! lol!!
I was extremely worried I might have let one or two people down if not the whole group!!! That perhaps some would think they never got their moneys worth....wasted their day....
Let me say, worrying is paying a price for a debt not due!!!! Truer words have never been spoken!!
Shortly after our arrival, my thoughts changed to "if anyone doesn't like it here or can't enjoy themselves...that's their problem"
Everyone thanked me for taking them there, making the arrangements, making the suggestion....making that day the highlight of their trip.....the "best day of her life" one of the girls said,and she has traveled quite a bit!
Excellent people at the Zimbali!!! Good food! Good drink! Nice drive!!
We spoke with Mark prior to our arrival and he arranged for all of us to be picked up at our different hotels in Negril by 2 small buses and we all arrived together....no issues...no worries...everything went as planned!!!!
Thanks Mark!! Alicia.....what a great spirit you have and are!!
P.S. Mark,we arrived back home safe and sound with our new hammock that Francine made us and was able to get ready literally hours before we had to head to the airport....we've been looking for a hammock like that for years!!!! Icing on the proverbial cake!!!
