Have you suffered from Holiday Sickness when you’ve been on holiday in Jamaica or immediately after you’ve returned home from Jamaica?
Jamaica is a very typical Caribbean island. Its location means it enjoys balmy temperatures all year round. Along the coast are white sands surrounded by palms, and beach bars serving up local specialities. Holidaymakers travelling inland will discover waterfalls, banana plantations and mountains provide spectacular views. This would all amount to a fantastic holiday experience if it wasn’t for the many visitors who fall ill in Jamaica each year.
Many visitors who have paid to visit areas such Montego Bay, cannot enjoy its streets packed with colonial buildings, and museums that should provide visitors a fantastic cultural experience. The main resorts on the island are Montego Bay, Negril and Ocho Rios. In these towns, beachfront hotels sit beside reggae bars and nightclubs. Holidaymakers looking for a more relaxed pace usually flock to Lucea and peaceful Runaway Bay. All these regions promise a dream destination, but unfortunately the reality can be plagued with avoidable sicknesses.
Jamaica can be a dream destination form many holidaymakers, however for some it can be a nightmare.

Poorly maintained hotel swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach sickness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
