Adventure and a workout in Jamaica

The Boston Globe: "I spent 30 minutes working out with Rosa Young on a nice little patio at the Coco Le Palm resort on Negril’s Seven Mile Beach in Jamaica and it damn near killed me. Seven days with her in the jungle, hiking up waterfalls or running on the beach? Well, maybe if I were younger. OK, and not such a wuss.

Young and her partners are hosting a workout adventure a tad on the unusual side for Jamaica and definitely well off the beaten path. They are calling it Jamaica’s ultimate Eco Trek, scheduled for Jan. 17-24, and it takes place in the form of adventure exercise excursions to Royal Palm Reserve, the Negril lighthouse, Paradise Park, and Mayfield Falls"

Forbes   I recently spent a week in  Turks and Caicos , my first time out of the country since the pandemic hit. Like many Caribbean countries, Turks and Caicos rely  almost entirely on tourism  to power their economy, so they’re desperate for travelers to return. I’m happy to report that these beautiful beaches felt like an escape from the despair of this global pandemic, and here’s how they are keeping travelers safe.

Air Canada to charge for second checked bags in Canada

thestar.com : "MONTREAL — Air Canada has followed the lead of rival WestJet and will begin charging fliers who check a second bag on trips within Canada and to the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Mexico. Canada’s largest carrier said a $20 fee will be charged for passengers buying economy class tickets as of Thursday for flights beginning Jan. 19, the same day that WestJet will begin levying the fee. The first checked bag remains free for both airlines.

Dominica - really the nature isle

Antigua Sun : "As close as the islands may be in the Caribbean Basin, islanders will tell you that they have journeyed to many places all over the globe but have never been to any of the island neighbours. I cast my mind back to a trip I made to an island that is just 45 minutes away from our twin-island state. This island has provided the setting for a number of popular literature, from the classic Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys to the most recent Unburnable by Marie-Elena John, and with good reason to! The lush, vibrant nature of this isle is enough to take anyone's breath away."
