Traveling in Jamaica-Do You Feel Safe?

I haven't traveled to Jamaica in quite sometime, however I have friends and family who have. I have been reading about the concerns of many people who are planning to spend their holidays in Jamaica. The funny thing is that when many tourist come to the island, they go to resorts where their is high security. So if you seclude yourself behind high iron gates, why would you say you are "scared" of the crime rate?

Tourist are commodities for Jamaica. This simply means the Minister of Tourism is going to do everything to ensure the safety of many that visit the island. Jamaica is like anywhere, there are places you should go and places you shouldn't. The logic would be to travel in groups of two or more and not travel alone at night.

Here are some routine tourist spots.

Coyaba River Garden

Hilton High Day Tour

Spend the day on a private estate in the hilly interior. Meet the country people, enjoy the foods, learn about the history during a guided nature walk. Dressmaking

...and of course you can always go to Jamaican Attractions to find some fun things to do on the island.

I know what the papers say, but for many that live on the island, that is a day to day occurrence. I hope that the reports don't stop people from coming an visiting a wonderful place and people.
