Travel Tips for Jamaica - General
- Tipping - in tourist areas and larger restaurants, gratuity is usually included on your bill. In the countryside, and in small establishments, tipping is left to the discretion of the visitor.
- Openly homosexual behaviour is not well tolerated. It will cause stares, comments, and in a very few cases, violence. In recent times there have been attempts from North America and Europe to force acceptance of homosexual behaviour upon Jamaicans. Most Jamaicans view this as a type of cultural imperialism.
- Jamaicans appreciate it when you say "Good Morning" or "Good Evening/Night" when you enter a room. "Good Night" is used both in greeting and in taking leave
