Why is it that every second person I talk to tell me how dangerous jamaica is... before we went last year, almost every travel agent I spoke to tried to talk me out of going. I was told to "hold on to your babies" when they found out we were taking our children. Where do such idea's come from? Our children were treated better there by locals then they do by my "canadian" locals. I spoke to someone who has travelled to many caribbean islands but jamaica... and when I asked why? It's very dangerous there! One lady I worked with was so against us going.. and her husband won a trip to negril thru work when we returned... she was so scared to go... when she returned, lets just say, she didn't want to leave beautiful jamaica!
I hope all of us who love jamaica for all that it is can show people how amazing it really is... sure there may be some parts that aren't safe, but in the city i live in... there are parts that aren't safe too!!
Give Jamaica a Chance!!!
