Jamaica was our Country of the Week. We looked at how the island shifted from Spanish to British rule, and eventually full independence. Get that, and a healthy dose of Jamaican culture, HERE.

In our Travel Guide we discovered why exactly so many people are flocking to the resorts and beaches of Jamaica. Of course that’s not all this amazing country offers. See more HERE.

This week’s Currency Spotlight looked at the long history of money in Jamaica. We also looked at the current value of the Jamaican dollar while shedding some light on the state of the economy. Read more HERE.
