Hello there! Wah gwaan? I'm Ashley, a new member of the Travel Massive community. I'm a Jamaican resident and excited that as of April 2022 Jamaica's borders are fully open! Yup, it's true! No COVID test needed. Our 3 airports are awaiting your arrival!
Did anyone have plans to visit Jamaica this year? I'd love to know what's on your itinerary!

Are you actively writing about Jamaica? In the post-pandemic tourism world, I strongly support sustainable tourism both as a value in itself but also because of what we see happened during that pandemic. Namely certain places (not just Jamaica either) that had their tourism dollar in the mega-resorts and all-inclusives and of course that sector was the one that suffered the most immediately and hugely with the falloff in travel. Other Caribbean countries and economies I have visited have managed to diversify successfully beyond a dependency on all-inclusives, and part of that depends on the attitude and agenda of the island/country's tourism board. They can talk a lot about "sustainable" or smaller special interest travel but at the end of the day their strings are pulled by those who can pull them in the direction they want - namely, mass tourism.

Hello there Hal, I love this conversation that you've started. I started my blog this year so there's still so much I have yet to say about Jamaica. I work in the Jamaican public sector so from a policy and programming angle, I am aware of a few of the ideas for Tourism in Jamaica to pivot, seeing as its a core component of Jamaica's GDP. Community Tourism is on the rise and that's something I hope to dive deeper into in my blog as it evolves.
