Yes, there is plenty of "amercian food" at the grocery stores. I would say bringing canned meat into JA is a no go.

Yes, but be ready for much higher prices for such imported, and taxed, foods. You do much better buying Jamaicn products.

ANY professionally processed and canned meats like Spam or Tuna FIsh, chicken , seafood will be allowed.....

I know you cannot bring fresh foods or plants or flowers in or out...and NO coffee as well of any sort.( of course who would want to when Blue Mountain Coffee is available ) .

Yes, Blue Mountain coffee is the best, we agree.

Candace are you in a condo or private home and want to bring food? Lots of road side vendors for fresh produce everywhere.

You can take most processed foods into Jamaica. If by chance the Custom Officer ask you who or what it is for, answer very clearly PERSONAL CONSUMPTION..

You cam most American brand products in Jamaica stores but you will pay much more for them.

You can bring water and soda only in your checked luggage. Because of the weight of water and soda, I would buy it in Jamaica as you can find both of them almost everywhere in Jamaica.

There is no need to bring bottled water or soda to Jamaica. It is all available there and with the prices of extra luggage it would cost you more to bring that down with you.

WHY? there are plenty of places to buy water and sodas, why load your luggage down? Now a bottle of Jack or Beam or George Dickle would be fine....
