Jamaica might be the hustler / con-man capital of the world. If you want to learn how to do it, go to a tourist beach in Jamaica and watch the hustlers go to work on you. If you can even make it to the beach without one of these con-men yelling at you, then you should get a prize. They get up early in the morning to be ready for you. As soon as you step out of your hotel there they are, Waving, yelling, gesturing.
If you want it, they've got it. If you don't want it, they've got even more of it.
The key to avoiding the Jamaican Hustler is to completely ignore them. They'll know that you know what's up and leave you alone. Don't let your manners and politeness get taken advantage of. If you don't defend yourself, they will push you as far as you'll let them.
I would bet that one individual alone costs Jamaica at least $100,000 / year.
Imagine how many polite tourists one guy has ripped off, offended, disrespected, used up etc.
Image how many people vowed to never go back to Jamaica, just because of this one guy.
He messes with every single tourist that crosses his path, hundreds a day.
Without these guys, Jamaica would be one of the most popular destinations for Americans,
it is only 1 1/2 hours from Miami.
Please guys? Can I sell you something else you don't want?
You can still have a good time there.
