Maybe it's the desire for the tropical sun to kiss your skin. Maybe it's the way Bob Marley's chilled out your soul ever since you stole his Greatest Hits from your college suitemate, then told him "dude, that's my Greatest Hits" every time you rocked it out. Maybe you're hoping to meet a female Taye Diggs, possibly named "Tayette". Whatever your reason, jet straight to Jamaica, with JetBlue's new service from JFK.
Bringing, as always, low fares, leather seats, mondo legroom, free flicks, and gratis snacks, JetBlue's now set to unveil direct daily flights from JFK to Montego Bay, home to the turquoise waters of Doctor's Cave Beach -- which some consider curative -- and numerous world class golf courses so lush, even the infirm will enjoy them. Just some of what you can get into down there:
Golf at the Half Moon: A member of Jack Nicklaus's "Great Golf Resorts of the World", the Moon offers 7119 yards of undulating, palm-lined play, and's hosted tournaments from the European Seniors to the Red Stripe Pro-Am -- sponsorship that gets right to why you play golf in the first place.
River Rafting: By tube, bamboo raft, or not-bamboo raft, you can idly cruise or tangle with rapids as you pass through unspoiled jungle and stunning gorges, sipping rum punch and keeping an eye out for indigenous wildlife, especially any that might come after you and/or your rum punch.
Sitting on Arse at Breezes: Sure, there're activities like windsurfing, snorkeling, and beach volleyball, but the all-inclusive resort also packs in four bars, three dining rooms, a freshwater pool, and a massive rooftop Jacuzzi overlooking the bay -- so romantic, your head will explode, leaving your girlfriend no choice but to run off with the windsurfing instructor.
Service starts up May 21, but you can make reservations right now at JetBlue.com, then spend the next few weeks listening to that scratchy but still playable Greatest Hits album, and imagining Private Practice's "Dr. Sam Bennett" with a wig on.
