Jamaica: Not always a beach.

These were taken 2008, before I got the photo bug. It was my 5th visit to the same places.

Montego Bay, St. James.

Well, I'm glad to see this pictures. I doubted to travel to Jamaica but didn't know if there was enough urban and cultural beauty. Apparently not, it looks quite shabby. Is it also safe enough? I heard about negative experiences in Jamaica...

It does suffer from a poor economy. Unfortunately the few shots I took, does not give the full story. As for shabby, it can get far worse, and also very dangerous in certain sections (ghettos) of Kingston and Spanish Town. New Kingston is far different and more affluent.
(Also, of course, there`s the all inclusive beach holidays, which is a different experience altogether).
