Is it expensive for me to buy a hat in Jamaica itself or do you suggest i take it from home?
....Linda wanted something FROM Jamaica, so bought it there. She got a nice straw hat on the beach at CN for $15. Baseball type hats can be had in the store for $10-$15 that says "Couples" or "Jamaica". I'd go that way.
Be careful making or buying straw hats outside of the states and bringing them back. I have seen a few times coming back from Jamaica where people had their hats taken because technically the straw is/was plant life, which you are not supposed to bring back. It may depend on the airport or the TSA agent you get, but just an FYI.
BTW - I have a Couples baseball cap that I bought last year and wear it all the time, very comfy.

Just a note on that straw hat… not from personal experience but I have heard several people complain that the “straw hat” was taken from them on their return flight as it violates the whole “Plant rule thing”… Personally I think it would be just bad luck and getting the wrong person with an attitude MOST of the time you should be fine, but thought I would pass on what I had read before…. Don’t be too upset if you buy one to take home only to have it taken from you….
