If you are someone from the city then you probably view people from rural areas as low brow hicks. Personally I do not know where this came from but all I can say that it is not true. Here I’ll give you why rural Jamaica is a very impressive place to grow up and why if you were growing up in Jamaica you would want to live in the rural areas.
1.) Nature: this one is pretty simple people from rural areas enjoy the natural beauty of the country. You have rivers, hills, mountains, fruits all you can think of. Being able to enjoy fruits and other foods found in nature is also a big plus of living in a rural area and by finding I mean that you find it in the wild. Have you ever dreamt about just going out with little supplies and simply surviving by eating delicious fruits you can find easily in the wild? Then you definitely would want to take a bigger look at rural Jamaica.
2.) You turn out more rounded: You would turn out more rounded if you lived in the country. Why? Because simply there are a wider variety of activities available to you and especially if you lived in rural Jamaica. Have you ever wanted to learn to work with your hands and feet while at the same time developing your intellectual mind? Then you would love living in rural areas. If you are person that loves to fish and loves to plant then you probably are already living in the country. Imagine having acres of land to plant whatever your heart desired. That is what rural Jamaican could mean for you.
3.) Better Place to raise a child: You may agree or disagree but it is proven time and time again that raising a child in the city poses many risks as the child is continually tempted to do bad things. Many parents would rather not expose their young ones to certain unpleasant details of city life and therefore would definitely love the city. Imagine teaching your children how to survive in nature, how to fish, how to play sports, how to raise animals, all in a care free unpolluted environment.
So if you are wondering where is the best place to live? I would say rural Jamaica. It is where anyone that just wanted to get away and be at one with themselves and nature would want to live and also if you were the type to want a modern yet humble upbringing.
