I had a really amazing time in Jamaica, this is truly a beautiful place with beautiful kind people, everyone was super friendly and it was extremely fun. Down to just playing with the children in the street. I can’t wait to go back. The street food is amazing and affordable. I preferred it over the restaurants.
