Why do people migrate to Jamaica?
Why do people migrate to Jamaica?RESPONSE: by Wellesley
The five (5) main reasons persons migrate to Jamaica are:
- The tropical weather and climate of the island
- Its natural beauty and closeness to nature
- Business & Career Opportunities
- Education (Jamaican schools are rated among the best), & yes...
- Admiration of culture (music, sports, dance, etc)
It is well documented, as a tropical Caribbean island, we have the best weather! And people know that.
And so, not only do many who left Jamaica because of opportunities seek to return home, many visitors now aspire to make it home! Read more about the Jamaican climate here
It's Natural Beauty
Perhaps we can attribute it to Jamaica's natural geology
, but Jamaica is a haven for natures' enthusiasts.
Think about our majestic waterfalls
, caves and caverns
, forests, beaches
, flora and fauna
, as well as, yes, our magnificent sunsets
Business & Career Opportunities
Surprise here? Don't be. As it was in the (documented) beginning when the Europeans, and later slaves and indentured labourers (Asians, Africans and Europeans) came here, so it is today.
And it is not only to 'set up shop', many have sought and identified great career opportunities here in Jamaica.
Oh yes, many of our schools are top rated! I've heard several stories of persons migrating to Jamaica (or sending their children here) to study who later settled; many from the Caribbean islands but many also from the rest of the world. See colleges in Jamaica
Culture has always been a big attraction for Jamaica, but even more so today. And this include areas of music
and even food
By the way, did you know that in addition to learning and getting a deeper appreciation of reggae music, hundreds of persons come to Jamaica to learn dance moves?
And by the way, many of these are still the core reason persons visit Jamaica
And may I also add that a core reason for persons to visit Jamaica is because of it's people
Last year we welcomed well over 4 million persons to the island, way more than the number of persons who live here! Read more about the tourist statistics here
And funny enough, from our own internal poll, many of the persons say that Jamaica's best attraction is... it's people!
So there you go... the core reasons persons migrate to Jamaica!
Do you agree with me?
Is there another reason?
