Jamaica may seem like a heaven with its beautiful beaches and tropical vibe, but the sun-kissed landscape hides a more sinister aspect. The country has a high rate of violent crime, especially gang violence in the inner-city regions.
As a result, it is a risky place to visit for tourists. If you think you’re safer in resorts, then think again. Several reports of crime were done by tourists who were living in the supposedly safer, all-inclusive resorts. And what’s worse, these crimes were allegedly done by the hotel staff itself!
That’s why it’s crucial to be extra vigilant if visiting, avoid high-risk areas, and stepping out at night to prevent an unpleasant and risky situation.
