    Great article, thanks for the tips!

    Indeed, as one of the most beautiful countries in the Caribbean, holidaying at Jamaica is one of the most captivating Caribbean experiences to be had. However, Jamaica also has one of the highest murder rates in the world. Although not targeted at tourists, it still pays to be careful of crime and tourist targeted scams here.

    Do be wary of the unofficial tour guides, aggressive street touts, renta-rasta and rentadreds, illegal drugs, pickpockets, snatch thefts, rogue money changers, rigged ATMs and many more!

      If I was not knowing Jamaica very very well, David, I would be scared! Most things you mentioned will be in every (poor) country, and even in Holland I’ve got robbed. Jamaica is (J)Amazing for real thanks for your replay. It is true you have to watch out with scamming in all kind of ways: everybody needs a dollar and some of them just don’t do it the right way.
      I noticed when you tell people who hustle to much you are all right, just busy, they will calm down.
      If you travel and are able to share, it would be great though.
