After reading multiple reviews on how the Jamaicans are "pushy", it would be nice if the ungrateful, entitled, snotty group of Americans and others would put things into perspective. This country is extremely poverish. The people who live there likely make their livelihood off of tourism-that is it. The competition is high amongst their countrymen. So when the opportunity arises for them to make little money off of us "wealthy" Americans and others, I don't blame them. So while you are enjoying your $1000.00 plus or minus per person cruise and sleeping in air conditioned rooms, eating wonderful food, and drinking....perhaps you will think of them.

I have been to Falmouth multiple times and I have had a great experience every time! The people are so friendly and the beaches are to die for! It’s truly a shame that people stay on the ship because they think that Jamaica isn’t safe or sketchy because I have been to all three of the Jamaica cruise ports (Falmouth, Ocho Rios, and Montego Bay) and I have never felt unsafe! It saddens me that RCI has decided to move away from the port because I’ve seen how so many people’s lives depend on these ships coming in every week! I’ve booked all of the excursions out of the cruise line and have never had a problem. I’ve done Duns River Falls, Hilton resorts, beach excursions, etc and never had a negative experience. There is honestly so much to do in Jamaica! It’s a must go to place on a cruise!
We got a taxi for $6 pp right outside gates of port and went to Burwood Beach less than 10 min away. The driver was fantastic and was back to pick us up 10 min after I called him (RG Transport & Tours- firstname.lastname@example.org) Practically had the beach to ourselves the whole time. $6 each to get in during spring break not bad. Beautiful water & white sand. 1 lady hair braiding, 1 selling homemade jewelry & Chris doing aloe massages that loves to chat😂 No food but a small beach bar selling drinks and chips etc. Relaxing beach day. Had a late lunch at Margaritaville in the port which was good & large portions but $$$ for nachos & burgers! Loved our first time in Jamaica and will return.
Our day in Jamaica was the best day we've had on an excursion. To learn from and eat with the people of Jamaica was an honor. What a warm and welcoming people sharing their history, culture and food. Was a true all inclusive day. Even tried to teach us a little patois! The "rundown" was soo delish and then stopping to enjoy the "hella top hella bottom and hallelujah in the middle" was a treat. Yum! Thank you Janet for a lovely day in Jamaica. Please check out and consider Jamaica Culinary Tour as your excursion. Read the Trip Advisor reviews. It will not disappoint. http://www.jamaicaculinarytours.com Jamaica Culinary Tours (Falmouth): Top Tips Before You Go - TripAdvisor https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g612473-d4935293-Reviews-Jamaica_Culinary_Tours-Falmouth_Trelawny_Parish_Jamaica.html
