It was a great place to unwind and connect with nature. The gallery features the work of local artists and provides a unique insight into Jamaican culture and creativity.
Fourth on my list was a yoga class at the Negril Yoga Centre. The yoga centre offers daily classes in a beautiful outdoor setting overlooking the ocean. The yoga practice was challenging yet rejuvenating, and the peaceful atmosphere of the centre was the perfect place to find some inner peace and relaxation.
Last but not least, I visited the Rockhouse Hotel and Spa in Negril. The spa provides a range of services, including body wraps, facials, and massages, all of which use natural and organic ingredients. The serene environment and relaxing treatments were the ideal way to cap off my trip to Jamaica for wellness.
