What’s Jamaica like?

Don’t know how to describe it, but it’s an unusual perspective. Simply read it and make your own conclusions.

I would have to add that anytime you stay in an all inclusive resort your experience of the island will be vastly different...I stayed at a Hotel and it was not rampant free love/sex. The men are highly respectful of you if you give them the signal that you are not interested, just as you would at home in the US. As for drugs, its easy to get locked up and the key thrown away forever, so be warned not to go down that party road, people. Overall, its a beautiful island with friendly, artistic wpnderful people that art not all on weed all the time as she suggested. If you get the chance...GO!!!

I am a citizen of Jamaica, i was born & raised here, and i can tell u... Not every1 here smokes and most of all, Not every1 smokes weed.

And a little correction, Jamaica is not a third world country. It's a developing country and we will all see the difference in a few years time. Its a wonderful country to live in, its beautiful & it has luscious trees and forestries. believe me the ppl here are great. Our culture is deep and rooted a & its not because I'm Jamaican why I speak this way. Remember in almost all countries around the world there are classes of ppl & sadly Jamaica is one of them. However we are all one family, we live as one & as our countries motto states: "Out of many One people"

Here is an excerpt from a Jamaican website i was on earlier:
" "Ah," said God. "That's Jamaica the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful beaches, blue mountains,
streams, hills, and water falls. The people from Jamaica are going to be very handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world holding good jobs. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high-achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace, play football and go to the Winter Olympics." "

As a jamaican myself...I can only say the best is save the guests.Growing up here on the island I've witness that Jamaican can be very hospital towards people of all kids of back grounds and races.

Here are some facts about information that get mix up all the time.

1. Do Jamaicans live in trees? -No

2. Do we Ride Donkey to go everyhwere? -There are Donkeys for market people but not people of the city.we rather drive cars ;)

3. Do we have weed on you?- A lot of Jamaicans do not smoke.If one do offer you weed.Is just that they're trying to make some money off of you.

For many people who do visit in jamaica,either if its for mission work or vacation.There's always good qualities and bad qualities,just like in all countries.

WELL, THIS IS A LONG TIME CITIZEN OF JAMAICA AND OF COURSE I KNOW ALOT ABOUT THE ISLAND. I HAVE LIVED THERE MY WHOLE LIFE BUT LATER MIGRATED TO THE US. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL ISLAND IF U SHOULD ASK ME AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY A GREAT PLACE TO GO VACATIONING. I LOVE IT AND GOD KNOWS I MISS IT VERY MUCH BUT I PLAN ON GOING BACK NEXT SUMMER. FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO KNOW HOW IT IS.... I RECOMMEND U CHECK THE ISLAND OUT TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF IT. THERE IS ALOT MORE I COULD TELL U BUT IT WOULD BE BETTER IF U SEE IT FOR URSELF. IT WAS NICE COMMENTING AND I HOPE U CHECK IT OUT SOMETIME.
