Couple travel experience

I was in Negril, Jamaica and it was one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. That being said, I was there with my girlfriend and Jamaica is a very homophobic place. If you’re straight, I think you’ll have no issues. Negril is a small town and pretty safe, although I caution against going out alone at night because men can be very aggressive.

Solo travel experience

Was just in Jamaica and I have to say that the sexual and otherwise harassment is very intense. Especially as someone who was there alone and not staying on resorts or all-inclusives. On the resorts it seems to be better.

Couple travel experience

Was not a fan of the Jamaican harassment. Sexual and vendor-wise. Super pushy and in your face. We didn’t stay at a resort but rather an Airbnb condo and walking around to get food and sight see was uncomfortable. Although, we were in Ocho Rios near where the cruise ships came and went, so that may have had something to do with it. Enjoyed the beach and the food. But if I ever went again it would be to a resort.

Local experience

If you are looking for less touristy things to do you could look st staying in treasure beach St Elizabeth or Port Antonio or get an Airbnb in Ocho Rios or Montego Bay or Trelawny. Tons to do in Jamaica - hiking, water activities, cultural experiences and great food. The people are friendly but like all big cities there is crime and you need to be careful and if you are not getting mixed up in the wrong activities you should be OK.

Solo travel experience

I’ve travelled to Jamaica (spent a month backpacking alone for all of these) Cayman Islands, St Lucia, Barbados and Cuba. Never had any problems. Landed in Kingston at midnight and caught a bus with the locals into the city. A few dodgy characters knocking about but no worse than London or Manchester, plus most people just want to help tourists. You’ll get some attention if you’re a western-looking female on your own in Jamaica and St Lucia. I can’t say i felt scared though.
