Years ago, my wife and I had the choice of honeymooning in N.Y.C. or Jamaica. We chose New York. We always regretted that because we have never had the opportunity to travel to the Caribbean again.

 

However...........

 

I don't know that I'd even consider Jamaica today.

 

According to Travellersworldwide.com, traveling to Jamaica can be quite dangerous. They tell you to avoid carrying things that you don't want taken from you, They advise you to not walk anywhere at night. As to LGBTQ++ tourists, Time Magazine once referred to Jamaica as the most homophobic country on the planet.

 

But most concerning is their HOMICIDE RATE.

 

According to the United Nations Office On Drugs and Crime, Jamaica has a homicide rate of 44.7 deaths per 100,000, one of the highest in the world. Compare that to a 0.3 per 100,000 rate in Japan or even, in gun happy United States, a rate of 6.5 per 100,000.
