"Shop Haggling" Jamaica Tourist Trap Tip by Astrobuck

Jamaica Tourist Traps: 60 reviews and 28 photos

If you are with a tour guide, especially at Dunns River Falls, DO NOT go the way he tells you...it is a trap to send you back into a section of shops with very questionable people. If you want to get a couple of souveniers, it's OK to go, but if you don't feel safe or like haggling, do not go. Please, DO NOT GO ALONE! It's not as safe as you may think, and they will take advantage of you any way they can.

Unique Suggestions: Stick to your guns..if you think it is worth $3, don't give in. Tell them it's $3 or you walk.

Fun Alternatives: NEVER go alone!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
