Can anyone give up-to-date advice about car rental and "drive your own" holidays in Jamaica?
Couple (mid 40's) from Australia planning a trip to Caribbean next year and would love to visit Jamaica, but definitely not to "all-inclusive" resorts. Prefer exploring the island and 2-3 night stays in various places, particularly Port Antonio/Portland Parish.
Want to know whether this type of independent holiday is possible, most recent road conditions and if the country in general is safe to do so? (Just to put into perspective, past travels have included places like Israel, Samoa and Timor Leste - but would like a relaxed holiday with only a little bit of adventure this time around!)
