Common Questions!

by Wellesley
(Montego Bay, Jamaica)



Here are some of the most frequent questions posed to us.


  • What Timezone does Jamaica Uses?


    We observe Eastern Standard time in Jamaica -all year. This is the same timezone that is observed in North America. See my clock here!

  • Do All Jamaicans Smoke Ganja?


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

  • When is lobster season in Negril?


    The lobster season in Negril is the same season for the entire Jamaica. Every time of the year
    is lobster season, except from April 1 to June 30 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. See Language of Jamaica!
