General Information :: Jamaican Travel Guides, 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), 1765-D LeRoy Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94709, publishes guidelines for tourists and works to mitigate the negative impacts of tourism in this area.
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.
