Gratituy & Tips
This was my first trip with Divas in paradise and I can honestly say it was an amazing experience. Very well thought out from the workshops, excursions and just the general vibe. The girls were amazing, it was nice to be around like-minded people. I have so many photos and memories that I will cherish.
I had a wonderful time exploring the hidden beauty of Jamaica with the gang, Jade’s hospitality and obvious passion for what she does left everyone wanting more! The authentic places and yummy food was an overall incredible experience!
Divas in Paradise exceeded my expectations. The emphasis on connecting with nature is the most memorable experience! The food was exceptional and as authentic as it comes. I would love to join the Divas in Paradise again!
