It’s one of the bigger islands in the Caribbean and definitely also one of the most welcoming places. Tourism is a main industry on the island and it’s in the top five tourist destinations in the world, probably because no one knows hospitality like Jamaicans do. Staying on and calling Jamaica, and its fifty public beaches, your new home is a temptation hard to resist.
Unemployment rates are dropping and economic growth has increased a lot since 2013. Health care is available in large cities and free, but all areas usually have a small emergency centre. The government has also recently taken big steps to improve the quality of education on the island and because the official language is English, getting around, doing business and meeting people is easy.
Jamaica has a strong local culture and important aspects of it are family, trust and of course the world famous laid back attitude towards life in general. Churches can be found everywhere on the island and religion plays an important part in daily life. Business culture is also conservative compared to other countries and many companies require employees to wear a uniform.
