Our favourite travel trio Calee, Stephen and their baby Nyla have come to the end of their Jamaican adventure (for now). For months we’ve watched them experience just about everything there is to do, see and taste in Jamaica.
Season one of the popular webisode series saw them climbing the cascading Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios, tubing on the White River, swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove, parasailing at Cosmo’s Beach in Negril, touring the haunted rooms of the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay, riding in an aerial canopy tour and taking a bobsled coaster ride through a tropical rainforest at Mystic Mountain and so much more. In the second season they thought it a great idea to finish off their road trip around the island by visiting many of the places they did not get to see last time, especially the eastern part of the Island with it’s quiet and undeveloped beauty.
