Caribbean Favorites!

Bon Bini, loves!! As you may or may not know - Tyler and I are enjoying our last few days in Aruba, so this post will be short and sweet! Sorry for the lack of posts {and planning on my part}!! All blogging will be back to normal next week and I've got an adorable Texan guest posting tomorrow, and you won't want to miss it!

I wanted to share a few of my must-haves while vacationing in the Caribbean! Jerk Chicken is oh-so-good! I remember having it for the first time in Jamaica after an excursion of kayaking and zip lining - I've been hooked ever since! The flavors are amazing and just scream Caribbean. Definite must try... so good with Balashi, a local Aruban beer!! Fried Conch.. this is amazing. It's a bit different than calamari, but is equally delish! Another must try. This is huge in Aruba and also in the Caymans, which is where we first tried it! The ultimate drink by the pool or on excursions is definitely rum punch! This has been a staple on our trip for sure - Strawberry puree, pineapple juice and dark rum... pure heaven!
