Jake's Resort, Treasure Beach: More Sun, Less Money
In case you missed the More Sun for the Money piece in the March issue of Condé Nast Traveler, we're doling out the Latin America and Caribbean deals here on the Daily Traveler all month.
Jake's Resort in Treasure Beach, Jamaica with doubles going for $115-$325
There's plenty to keep you from roaming at Jake's, an eclectic mix of rooms and cottages a two-and-a-half hour drive from Montego Bay, on the south coast. There's the free-form pool fronting the property's private beach as well as colorful rooms (without phones) decorated in a Moorish meets West Indian style and featuring minibars and CD players. But with the charms of the surrounding fishing community of Treasure Beach so close at hand, staying put would be a mistake: Have breakfast at the local eatery, shop for crafts, and, on public holidays, hear local musicians performing before returning to the resort to enjoy the catch of the day.
