    Not Jamaica, but if you ever go to Mexico, Domincan Republic, or the Virgin Islands you should be ok. I have taken mine to these places without incident. I must say I only hunted on the Ocean fronts. Never went inland to dig in the dirt.

    Did you carry on your detector or put it with luggage?

    I ALWAYS carry it on in its original box. The only problem I have ever encountered, are TSA agents that want to know what I find, how much it costs, yadda-yadda-yadda. I always give them my card and tell them to get in touch.

    When you get to Jamaica, try and find a LOCAL swimming spot. I have good friends on the Island, so I was able to hit spots tourists never see. Good Luck!

    The good stuff is in spots tourists never see either if you get my drift.

    No problems (at least not with actually detecting or detectors)

    From what I just read on another forum, taking a detector (Jamaica) is now forbidden. I am not verifying that information; just passing it along. I don't know if it is ok to mention the other forum, so you'll have to find that yourself.
