Wise Women activities include memoir-writing exercises and related art projects using natural materials gleaned from beach combing. Swimming or snorkeling in the Caribbean and water aerobics in the pool are part of each day. Early morning yoga or a walk in hill country is encouraged. Several of the days we will travel into the surrounding countryside. Massage will be available.

Lodging is at a small West Indian style inn on the Caribbean Sea, complete with a fresh water pool set in tropical garden. Some rooms have a water view, some have air conditioning; all are assigned on a first-come basis.

Food is simple and delicious: fresh fish, chicken, vegetables & fruit.

No better way to see Jamaica for those who want more than a vacation.
