The famous saying goes "Nowhere better than yard", and there are several reasons you should consider moving back home. Jamaica has a soul, filled with cultures and nuances that are hard to find anywhere else in the world even if we have our challenges.

Living abroad? Consider moving back home! 

1. The Diversity

Made up of fourteen parishes, Jamaica has several different personalities that are sure to delight every lifestyle and family dynamic. Not only is the terrain diverse but the cultural composition of the island has presented itself as a major selling point, a fully integrated society Jamaica's motto is "Out of Many, One People". 

Diverse Locations + Diverse People = An Island with TONS of Character and Culture 

Many areas are now experiencing public unrest over social relations especially concerning issues such as race and religion; Jamaica boasts a culture of mutual understanding and peaceful coexistence. Many rights and freedoms are protected in Jamaica. 



2. The Weather 

Jamaica has a pretty consistent WARM weather pattern, with its tropical location you will never need a winter jacket ever again. Spend less on clothing, more time outside and with all the year round consistent sunshine you'll stock up on Vitamin D, which can prevent depression. 

Temperatures in Jamaica range from 22 to 33 degrees Celcius, with the wettest months in May and October. Winters in Jamaica are pretty balmy, with mild temperatures.   



3. Family & Friends 

If you or your family previously resided in Jamaica, there's never been a better time to make plans to move home. Never underestimate the value of an excellent support system.  Friends become like family when you are surrounded by the warmth of Jamaican people. 



4. Food

Jamaicans do it better.

The Land of Wood and Water, Jamaica has several natural resources that make it one of the most visited destinations in the world. If you love the beach, rivers, and swimming, Jamaica has it all. If you're a nature lover, Jamaica's composition of flora, fauna, as well as its mountainous ranges and breathtaking geographical features will thrill you every single day. 





6. A Sense of Community 

Island living provides a sense of community. It's nice knowing some of your neighbours and experiencing the comraderies and feeling of belonging here in Jamaica.
