Visitors to Jamaica who want be among the residents and enjoy the taste and feel of a Jamaican home can enjoy this without any concerns. Through community based tourism one can stay in the private home of a resident and live just like family; get a chance to mingle with other persons in the area; visit sites that they would not normally get to if they were in a hotel/resort setting. Communities like Treasure Beach, Negril, Mandeville, Bluefields, White House are some of the areas where such accommodation can be found.

Of course, there is a plethora of cottages and villas dotted throughout the resort towns of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Port Antonio, Kingston, Negril and the South Coast of Jamaica. In Montego Bay you can find quaint cottages which are clean, well staffed in a garden setting with a view of the beautiful Caribbean Sea . Service  is excellent and the the price quite reasonable. Here you can be a part of the local community and contribute to community.
