I know a tour guide down there...Jamaican national who took Jenny and I around on a day tour a few years back. We've stayed in touch from time to time. I designed his website for him. So, if you want, I can give you his info and maybe he can answer your questions...

I'm going to guess and say your best bet is to work for one of the big resorts. They'd probably pay the 'best', and would be the easiest for you to find a job. Although I don't know Jamaica's immigration policies.

I'm sure it would be worth it, regardless of the small income.
