I am a 24 yr old girl from California and I lived in JA for 2 years. I would highly reccomend bringing a companion along on your trip because, although Jamaicans are some of the nicest, genuine people I have met, there are dangerous men there. The biggest places to avoid is the Kingston area, which is the side of the island with the best surf. Do not travel at night or be alone at night. Stay in a resort, that would be the safest. Other then that, you will love it there.
