We had an opportunity to sit down and chat with Barbara Pierce at WIMCO and find out why she loves Jamaica and thinks it's a perfect Caribbean destination.
Why you should rediscover Jamaica:
Jamaica and Montego Bay are a special destination with people who are extremely warm and show wonderful hospitality. It is a very welcoming island with mountains, rainforests, reef line beaches and excellent cooks in the villas. Montego Bay has many of the best resorts and beautiful villas in the Caribbean. I consider it a jewel in the Caribbean and still a bit undiscovered. The hotels and villas are still old world charm, with staff that are so gracious and helpful who will work hard at making your vacation the best ever.
Yes, Jamaica had a bad reputation for drugs and crime, however the drug problem has cleared up and the only real spot that has problems is on the other side of the island and it does not affect the Montego Bay area at all. Young families travel to Jamaica constantly without incident…Jamaica is as safe as any island and maybe safer than most US cities.
