Runaway Bay Resorts

The Runaway Bay resorts have helped to transform their home base into one of Jamaica’s most popular tourist destinations. Much of the allure lies in the resorts themselves, and it doesn’t hurt that Runaway Bay boasts some fine beaches and some wonderful snorkeling opportunities. Add in the fact that Ocho Rios is only about ten miles away, and it becomes clear that the area in general can make for a great place to both stay and play.

The Runaway Bay resorts, as is true of the Jamaica resorts in general, come mostly in the form of all inclusive retreats. Virtually everything is covered in the upfront price at the all inclusive resorts, and this basically translates to a stress-free experience. As for choosing a Runaway Bay resort, they offer quite a lot in the way of variety, so it can be a good idea to consider as many as possible.
