I've been to Jamaica 5 times (on cruises), I've never been scammed. However, they will always try to push drugs on you, braid your hair, and sell you junk. I would highly recommend not going off on your own or away from an excursion. That being said, on one in Montego Bay, they took us on a bus tour and dropped us off in town to shop. I had some great jerk chicken (best so far), but was ready to get back to the ship. On that particular cruise I was sailing single. I walked around the main part of the shopping area and then went to the stand selling the jerk chicken that was off the beaten path. I quickly realized that was NOT an intelligent thing to have done. I returned back to the main shopping area and took a cab back to the ship. Remember, you are in a foregin country, their laws are not like the US. However, there are plenty of places in the US I wouldn't venture to either. Their government works hard to keep the tourists safe, but just use street smarts. It is a truly beautiful island, don't miss the experience, just use good common sense. Best wishes.

Jamaica is our favorite destination. We fell in love with the Jamaican people. I love being called "my lady" They do want to sell you they're products and will try very hard. They take no for an answer and if you don't go off by yourself inland you will be fine. Enjoy Jamaica.
