Jamaica Hotels and Places to Stay
While we were in Jamaica we experienced no overt racial. When I returned to Canada one of my carpenters asked how I enjoyed Jamaica. I told him it was the best. I asked him if had ever been to JA and said he and his wife had been a couple years back and would never go back. I asked why and he said he was constantly harrased and threatened because his wife is black Haitian origin. They were in the Mobay and Ochios Rio areas mostly.

In general and especially in the tourist area's people will be treated well by Jamaicans, still it's possible that other tourist may stare etc. I'm a white man married to a black Jamaican.

But this holiday romance is not all it seems. The woman is white, in her late 50s; the man, black, 18 - and paid for his attentions.
Women, be very careful with your relationship with men in Jamaica and this holds true also with men meeting women. Jamaica is a country that is known for its friendly people.

This friendliness attracts women from all over the world especially from the young, handsome, and well built Jamaican men.
