I went to Jamaica last summer too and we stayed in Lucea. We took a catamaran up to Negril and on the way we stopped to snorkel, ate lunch in Margaritaville, and ended up at Rocks cafe!Well that sucks, sorry to hear about your experience in Jamaica. We will be going through Montego Bay on the way to Negrll in October. If others say it is OK, I still plan to bring mine. We pay for the Montego Bay club, maybe having the escort will help things.
I agree with your dad, sounds like extortion and they wanted you to forget and keep your $$$
Was I just really unlucky or what? Do you think the customs workers were trying to get some extra cash?? Any thoughts?
