"Jamaica - Beware" Jamaica by fe&Dave

Jamaica Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 21 photos

This was our first all-inclusive holiday and why we now want to escape from the confines of the all inclusive holiday. Dont get me wrong the hotel was clean and we had a honeymoon suite at Club Ambience. we just felt that the tour operator made you feel it wasnt safe to go off on your own and of course wanted to sell their trips which were very expensive - anyway we didnt take any notice and hired a car for a couple of days in the first week and clubbed together with another couple for a couple of days in the second week and really enjoyed getting out and seeing the real sites. We didnt feel safe all of the time and felt quite intimidated at times but if you are getting out you have to just be careful and ignore the locals who in tourists areas all have some thing to sell (rip you off !) If you get out of the tourist areas the people are lovely and everything is "no problem". We thought that the favourite past time is sitting and looking at what you are doing - particularly when we went snorkelling off the tourist route when we had tow or three locals just sitting and watching us.

More to come....
