That's a lot of Jamaican bus names. They are quite colorful. I have never been to Jamaica, but do want to go someday. What's holding me back is the quality of snorkeling and sand fleas. The bites can be quite painful, and I have heard that Jamaica does have a lot of sand fleas. Also, there isn't a lot of coral reefs, so it doesn't present the best snorkeling opportunities. I do like the buses though!
