Jamaica is a Caribbean island nation with a little over 2.8 million people living in it. Tourism, agriculture and mining are its main industries, thanks to its tropical weather and its lush topography of mountains, rainforests, and reef-lined beaches. With an economy struggling to grow, an unemployment rate well in the double digits, and a fight to control its deficit, this nation is open to bringing as much money as they can, which creates a huge opportunity for medical tourism. Healthcare in the destination is free for all citizens and legal residents at the government-owned clinics and hospitals. That includes prescription drugs. As in many developing nations, public healthcare reputation and waiting times allow for a private healthcare system to co-exist.
In Jamaica, the climate is tropical, hot all year round, with minimal difference between winter and summer. Even in winter, daytime temperatures are around 27-30 °C (81-86 °F), and nighttime temperatures around 20-23 °C (68-73 °F).
