Jamaica is not Disneyworld, and I would encourage any traveler to do some research before they venture out. Kingston, which is on the Southeastern side of the island, is known for its high crime. So is Washington, DC, the only place I've ever been mugged.

The tourist areas of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Negril and others have much less of a problem with crime. We've been to Jamaica five times and have never felt threatened or uncomfortable. However, we would not venture out, the two of us, on a motor scooter to see the countryside. Only in a taxi service recommended by the resort.
