Book with a ‚ÄėTour Family‚Äô rather than Tour Guide
No community in Jamaica is a singular entity, our neighbours are important links to our own livelihoods and it is important that each is treated well.¬† Many of Jamaica‚Äôs smaller communities do not have a marketing budget and rely on individuals who have visited and have enjoyed themselves to promote them via word of mouth.
For that reason make sure you book any tours with a local provider who has interests in the community you are exploring.¬† This way ¬†even in tough economic times you will not be over-charged, have to haggle, face aggressive sellers, ¬†be offered ‚Äėa smoke‚Äô or a¬† Jamaican man unless you of course ask for one and know that your valuable possessions like jewelry, hand luggage, credit cards¬† can be taken care of whilst you enjoy the moment.
