You obviously dont know shit about Jamaica.
I've been there several times. The real Jamaica. Not the tourist Jamaica.
What do you think those people would do to earn a living on that island without the tourism industry?
I'll bet most Jamaicans are thankful for the tourism industry and the money and wealth it brings to the island. Of course they aren't going to place tourist resorts in the ghettos! WTF? Lol.
I've been dozens of times.
You're thinking of the walled in compounds that discourage the guest from exploring the island,places like Couples or Beaches which we avoid like the plague.
I know the staff at Catcha make pretty good money from the guests.
Which is why we avoid the mega resorts which forbid tipping.
We tip the bartender Kevin at least $200 at the end of the week and the maids $100 each. In Jamaica that goes a long way.
Yeah, I've seen commercials for those places (Sandals, etc.) that look way overcrowded. If I was going to a resort, I would want more private settings than that huge "Disney World" type of place.
You might as well go to Florida if you're going to stay in those places.
We like to get out and meet the locals and Kevin the Bartender also owns a little restaurant in the hills we frequent.
