- 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.
