Abstract:From the tourist point of view the chief purpose of travel is that the destination should be different from home and better in some ways. In Jamaica, the environment, both natural and man-made, remains the backbone of the tourism product. The maintenance and protection of the environment is therefore crucial to the continuing growth of the island's tourist industry.
