Gemmin' In Jamaica 2023

The 1st Gemmin’ in Jamaica in June 2022, hosted by Gem City Travel at Sandals Montego Bay, was SO MUCH FUN that we decided to plan another while we were there! Gemmin’ in Jamaica 2023 will be in early December 2023 at Beaches Negril AND Sandals Negril!

Your travel dates can be somewhat flexible, but those who have booked so far are staying 4-5 nights beginning December 1.

In case you are interested, these dates should also fall during the Reggae Marathon.  We will post more details about the 10K, Half, and Full Marathon options once we have the details.  

Who can join us on our trip? Sandals Negril is an adults only resort (ages 18+), and the only bedding options are KING beds.  Does this mean you can’t travel with your BFF? Absolutely not! If you are cool to share that big bed, then it works!

Beaches Negril is for EVERYONE (including kids if you want to bring them)! There are a variety of rooms (even 3-bedroom suites) that can accommodate up to 12!

4-night packages start from $2266 per COUPLE (again, your “couple” is how you make it, but it is priced for 2 people) in a basic room at Sandals Negril.  Are you military (active duty or with a DD-214), a police officer, an IAFF Firefighter, or a FEMA Worker? These same packages start at $2040 per COUPLE!

Can I go for more than 4 nights? ABSOLUTELY!

What does the package include? Your transportation to and from the airport, your room (as selected), all meals and drinks (alcoholic and non) on resort, all land and watersports on resort (including snorkeling and scuba”), all taxes, and all on resort gratuities (unless you have a personal butler).
