Shopping in Jamaica
Jamaica is truly a shopper’s paradise where nobody leaves empty-handed. The national motto, “Out of Many, One People” is mirrored in the exceptional quality and variety of arts and crafts available at crafts markets in every resort area. Bargaining is a sport, and sales come with smiles!

Hand-crafter mahogany sculptures, influences by African tribal traditions, are found everywhere. Self-taught or “intuitive” artists produce paintings and pottery, while wood furnishings can be found alongside leather goods and fabulous tropical fashions. Sun-dresses and sarongs of beautiful batiks are characteristic of the Indian influence. And the truly exotic plethora of bangles and baubles, hand-sewn embroidery and straw accessories is simply smashing.
Jamaica is the birthplace of the spicy Pickapeppa sauce. Endless varieties of local exotic spices are also available for sale, island-wide. So, too, is Tia Maria liqueur, Red Stripe Beer and fine blends of premium Jamaican rums. And there is always an abundance of our world-famous Blue Mountain coffee, either pre-ground for your convenience or as packaged, hand-picked beans.
Discerning travelers have always known of the values to be found in our duty-free shops. Jamaica’s in-bond shops carry an extensive array of goods and the selections are just as satisfying as the prices. Shop for cameras and electronic equipment from Japan, designer fashions and fragrances from France, English china and porcelain, Irish linens and woolens, Scandinavian crystal, Italian figurines and lustrous gold and shiny silver. It’s all here. So shop shamelessly.
Gift and duty-free shops, as well as craft markets, are located in the most resort areas. And, in case you forget to purchase a gift for that special person, you may easily pick one up at the airport or cruise port just before departure.
