Queries that are deemed beneficial- to other visitors or other Jamaica interest, may be shared. Of course, I will credit you by attaching your name.

Our objective is to make my-island-jamaica.com even more insightful to you and others like you. So go ahead and keep the ball rolling!

Make sure you check my Profile Of Jamaica page for some facts. Here also are some already answered ones. 

  • What Timezone does Jamaica Uses?

    Jamaica uses Eastern Standard Time. Jamaica does not observe Daylight Savings Time. Some prefers to use GMT -5.

  • When is lobster season in Negril?

    The lobster season in Negril is the same season for the entire Jamaica. Everytime of the year is lobster season, except from April 1 to June 30 each year when the season is closed.

    You should not buy fresh lobster during this time. Established restaurants make the necessary arrangements with the government authorities in order to serve lobster during this time, so it's quite okay to enjoy lobster meals in these places.

  • What Language is Spoken in Jamaica?

    The official language of Jamaica is English, but the Jamaican "Patois" or local creole- is spoken throughout the island.

  • Do All Jamaicans Smoke Ganja? [Interesting one!]

    No. And I may just add as well that not all Jamaican are Rastas, neither are all Rastas Jamaican.
