No worries at all. We are making our fifth trip this summer. I have never felt threatened or unsafe in any way. The airport is as safe as any, the bus/van ride to and from the airport is safe with tons of beautiful scenery to look at, and the resorts are totally self contained and exceptionally safe and fun.
I will give you this to think about.............90-95% of the Jamaican economy is based on tourism. If it is so unsafe to go there, how do they survive. If it is that unsafe, people like me would not return over and over. Not to discount your friends, but how many have first hand experience in jamaica and how many are telling you "Facts" based on hearsay and word of mouth?
Jamaica is unsafe, all New Yorkers are rude, all Texans wear cowboy hats and ride horses, and all Californians are flakes....at least that is what some people would say....................
Go, enjoy, don't worry, and then laugh at your friends when you get back!!!!
Peace, Love, and Respect
