Where will you be watching the Rio 2016 Olympic next month?

Rio 2016 Olympic games starts in less than a month, 5th until 21st August 2016, and the Paralympics 7th until 18th September. 

It doesn't seem that long ago now that we were enjoying the highlights of having it here in London.  We enjoyed a buzz like no other, and a great UK Summer to match… how can we possibly top it at this years Olympics? 

The time zones may also have an impact on how we watch the games too, what with the UK being 4 hours ahead of Rio. So how’s about considering a trip to the Caribbean instead to watch Team GB? The time zone is between 1 hour to 2 hours ahead of Rio depending on the island you visit. 

Imagine, a cocktail in hand, watching the games around the pool on a smart device, or perhaps at the hotel bar with a cool beer?  Jamaica and Grenada to name a few, have a number of world-class athletes you can cheer along, as well as Team GB! 

We saw at the last Olympics, Kirani James won Gold in the mens 400 m.  Jamaica won 12 medals including: Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce winning Gold in the Women’s 100 m, and winning Silver with her team in the Women’s 4 x 100 m relay, Usain Bolt winning Gold in the Men’s 100 (now holding the a new World Record), Gold in the Men’s 200m and Gold with his fellow Jamaican athletes in the Men’s 4 x 100 m relay!  

Will the weather be an issue?  Not at all... we have had reports from our hotels that the weather has been betwene 28 - 31 degrees. Here is a video taken this from Jamaica Inn this week to prove it! 

The Caribbean is a great place to be this summer with fantastic deals and weather, 2016 Olympics is certainly the place to be! Essential Offers.  Contact our team for further details.
