Information Jamaica :: Sex and Travel
While tourism brings desperately needed foreign income for Jamaican Travel Guides, it has many potentially negative side effects.
The center for Responsible Tourism (CR Tourism@aol.com) publishes guidelines for tourists and works to mitigate the negative impacts of tourism.
Sex and travel forms part of the tourist scene in Jamaica. Whether its lazing on a nude beach or hiring a girl for the night there is always a sexual charge in the air at nights in Negril and Montego Bay.
It is often difficult to distinguish between romantic liaisons and sex-for-cash transactions. Sexual activity with a minor carries heavy penalties, as well as being morally reprehensible.
