The US Government has given its citizens a warning about Travelling to Jamaica presumably because of the spiralling crime rate. Jamaica has been placed on level 2 of their 4 level system to categorize countries that are potentially harmful to their citizens.
Level 1 countries are where travellers need to “exercise normal precaution”
Level 2 countries are where travellers need to “exercise increased caution”
Level 3 countries are where travellers need to “reconsider travel”
Level 4 countries are “do not travel”
So Jamaica is one level away from the tourism industry being destroyed, this will be interesting. Although this is unlikely to happen as tourists are not generally targeted so the US Government has no need to tell its citizens to stay away from Jamaica. This can change overnight however.
