Pros and Cons of Jamaica

Jump to last reply

I recently had a heck of a time trying to decide where to go for spring break. I discussed it with my travel agent (who has experience visiting the Caribbean), and my daughter and I finally decided on Montego Bay, Jamaica. We haven't done the all-inclusive thing before so we decided to try it this time. Our budget wasn't the greatest ($2000-2300 total), but my travel agent found a package for us at the Seacastles Beach Resort that was within our price range. I went ahead and booked the vacation and put down a deposit.

Why am I telling you all of this? Because now I have done more homework into Jamaica and have gotten worried about the safety and crime on the island. I work in the substance abuse prevention field, so the idea of watching people do drugs for a week doesn't excite me and I have a 10 year old daughter to think about. Since I have no experience in that part of the world, could someone give me some advice on the pros and cons of taking a vacation to Jamaica. Should we still go or cancel and go somewhere else that is safer?
