159 more days until return to Sandals Grande!!!!

My husband and I are returning for our 4th Wedding Anniversary for our second stay at Sandals Grande Riviera. We stayed here for our 1st Anniversary and we wanted to try a different Sandals but opted for this since it was recently renovated and was the least expensive and we have such a great time last time.

We want to try some different things this time though. We are doing the catamaran to Dunn's River, that's a given. But I heard of people also joining the Sandals Foundation and going to one of the schools and visiting the children. Has anyone done this? Also what else is good to do besides Dunn's River? Any help would be great!

59 more sleeps for us! Can't wait!

We have looked in to the Sandals Foundation as well but have never done it. We hope to do it this time around. Here is a link for the "pack with a purpose" website that will give you ideas of what the schools need if you wanted to bring something with you.

We did the Jungle River Tour - was fun - nice way to spend an afternoon. You can add Zip Lining as well if you are interested. River tubing was more relaxing with less "rapids" than we expected but was still nice.

We are planning on visiting the Luminous Lagoon - looks pretty cool. Here is a link to the TA Reviews.

We were there last week and a couple we know went last Thursday to the primary school and were able to interact with the children--- they usually go out the day after the return guest dinner which would have been Wednesday--- but there were a lot of dental students staying there that were going to the schools around Jamaica giving free dental care to the children. The couple really enjoyed it and actually found their brick on the wall that they had purchased the year before at the return guest dinner. I am thinking of going the next time we are there.

In previous visits we have enjoyed going to 9-mile on the Zion bus and also going to Port Antonio and spending the day rafting down the Rio Grand and seeing Frenchman's Cove and the Blue Lagoon.
