You must have changed your currency to the Jamaican dollars as none of the shopkeepers take other currency. So, if you mistakenly forgot to change it, then do it on an immediate basis as it will end up with some worse result.

Sometimes while looking at the budget we opt for small hotels. In other cases, it will be a good move but in Jamaica, as you know the theft rate here is high so avoid trying low budget or small scale hotels.
High scale hotels will cost more but it will be safe and as you know nothing is more important than your safety.
