    It is my understanding that this past growing season, Jamaican coffee, including the Blue Mountain area, was infected with roya, which is a coffee rust/leaf fungus. As a result, the already very...

    The only brands of rum cream I've seen in the States are Cruzan and El Dorado, with the latter being my preference.
    I also enjoyed the Littlefield brand while in JA.

    Don't be afraid to leave the resort, even if it's just a walk down the beach. CSA is just a microcosm of Negril and Jamaica - it would be a shame to go all that way and stay in a fishbowl, though a...

    It's not an Atrium suite without a hammock, as far as we're concerned. We prefer any surrounding the wedding gazebo grounds.

    Nightlife doesn't have to happen on the resort. While we love all of Jamaica, we usually stay in Negril because it has the vibe we enjoy. When we want AI, we prefer CSA for it's beach location and...

    Ossie's, which is basically across the road just to the south of CSA. Classic roadside jerk stand vibe, fantastic jerk pork in combination with traditional rice and peas. Ya mon!

    Everyone should venture off the reservation at least once and head up to the cliffs. It's a whole different vibe from the beach. Ivan's for the 100 Candles is our choice but you need to reserve it...

    Pelican Bar is truly a unique experience but probably not for everyone. If you have an adventurous streak, definitely. It's rustic with a capital R. I'd recommend hiring a private driver - one or two...

    Encountered violinist Aaron Meyer at CSA several years ago, who was there for a friend's wedding and played afterwards. Later, he brought the house down at the talent competition.

    Oh you lucky folks! El Dorado is excellent but not available here. Definitely would be my first choice outside of Jamaica. Their aged rums (12, 15, 21 year old) are spectacular.

    And yet another nod to Ivan's. If you're looking to really impress, ask them about the 100 candles dinner.
