First, let me begin with letting you all know how much I have enjoyed reading this forum over the last couple months and appreciate so much all the info that i have found on so many different topics. I will be staying at Sandals Ocho Rios March 6-12 and am very much looking forward to it despite all the bad reviews that I have been reading lately on various travel forums. ,. It will be my first physical trip to Jamaica ( I have been going there in my imagination for years). Normally I wouldn't consider myself an "all-inclusive resort stereotype", however we were able to get a great deal, so decided to check it out. My questions for now are these - does SOR have any form of gaming/gambling, e.g. cards, slot machines, etc. ? I have been searching the net and have not been able to find much information on this subject for all of Jamaica. Also, has anyone here ever done the "Nine Mile Tour" ? To actually visit where Bob Marley was born and has been laid to rest and been a goal of mine for many, many years. I have seen a few tour companies on line that offer this excursion, and was wondering if it is worth booking thru them, or just making the journey myself. Next question - would anyone have any words of wisdom on parasailing and 4 wheeling (ATVing) near SOR. And lastly, I found a brief article on a program called Meet the People - where you can get matched up with a Jamaican couple who have the same interests as yourself, to really experience and find out about the "real" Jamaica as opposed to the "resort vacation experience". Sorry to bombard you with so many questions on my first post - but I thank you in advance for your time and info.
