RELAX WHEN YOU GET THERE!
I am an uptight person that is always concerned about safety!
Don't stay at any other place than an inclusive hotel/resort of less than 3 stars. If you abide by that little rule, have a fun time and leave the stress at home!
The people there are the nicest people in the world! Its what you make of it from touchdown to takeoff! Just learn to say no thanks & don't feel bad or scared.
In the resorts you are perfectly safe! Off the resorts ,travel in a group and you are perfectly safe. Drink water, eat there food, and love there Jerk & fruits and you are perfectly safe. Bring suntan lotion and aloe vera as its easy to burn there for fair skinned people. Weather is shorts, shorts, shorts, or no shirt no shoes no problem. Bring comfortable walking sandels, and water sox as you will get charged for them if you do any adventuring. Bring one pair of kaky pants men and women something equivalent to that ladys. Bring underwater camera's, and bring and extra travel bag for stuff you buy when your there to take home, leave your cell phones home, internet is available at the resorts, use the front desk lady to help you out, or guy/ as they will tell you things about where to go, visit dunns river falls and if you have small kids leave them at the resort as it is a hard hike probably 13 and up, have a boat pick you up to go scuba diving & Dunns River Falls & shopping at the top & cruising drinking rum punch and listening to raggae music on a 2 hour cruse = priceless! have a great trip! "The good people we met, the good people we lost, along the way!"
EVERYTHING!!! I loved it all and took every moment to remember where I was when I was there! Leave work at home, let your hair down and be true to yourself "Love Life, you only get one of them", oh and PS, When your dead you have time to sleep so get up early enjoy the ocean sounds and evening sunsets, and in the middle remember where your at, Jamaica mon!
