Been to Jamiaca twice,and getting ready to go again soon. Like any other island almost everything has to be imported, so some certain things can cost more. Island made products, handicraft items, necklaces, cravings, artwork and shells can be bartered for and are a good deal. Most of the people are friendly and are eager to please, especially at the resort areas. Eating out can be expensive if you're in a mood for steak. But if you like Jerk Chicken, or fresh fish there are bargins to be found.
